Jon Stinchcomb speaks after undergoing sports hernia surgery

"It's disappointing not to be able to work out with the rest of the team, especially heading into these first OTAs (organized team activities). But I'm just hoping for a speedy recovery. And the good news is that it's not the middle of the season, and I'm not gonna miss any games or anything like that,"

Stinchcomb said he was told there are 18 different versions of sports hernias but his is a pretty typical repair that should take the traditional three weeks of recovery.

"Three weeks in the big scheme of things is probably one of the shortest rehab periods you can have for any surgery,"

"There's an excitement that's still around the facility. And I think it's for the opportunity to put the work in and have a shot at it when we feel like we've still got such a special group together,"

"I don't know whose quote it was that once you taste the apple, it's everything you can do to get another bite at it. I definitely feel like that's the attitude, rather than once you've been there you sit back and rest on your laurels. Wer'e gonna fight, scratch, claw to get back there."

Re: Jon Stinchcomb speaks after undergoing sports hernia surgery

Here's my thing. He injured himself with a medicine ball...this goes back to what we have griped about for years. Whats up with our training staff?? I know i'm point fingers with lil info, but it kills me how oour guys...our starters...go down every year before the season even starts. hopefully this is a true time table and not a Will Smith and Shockey timetable where 3-4 weeks turned into a season.

He's a rock on the line. I'm glad this is only an inconvenience and hopefully he'll be back in action in no time.
