yea this is never good, but all we can do is wait at this point - certainly scares me, though.

Shokeys was mis diagnosed as a groin pull first and not treated for a long while and he played on it for a long time and made it worse. The key to these injuries are catching them early as is the case with Greer.

I've had groin surgery from playing football and It was about a 2 week recovery period really and that 3rd week is just precautionary. Its really considered pretty minor in the football world....especially if it happens before preseason even starts. Not much to worry about here

Ivory had sports hernia surgery combined with a foot surgery (Lisfranc) late in the preseason last season, but he could've come off the PUP in week 7 when he was first eligible to do so, if the Saints would've needed him to.

So, in the case of Greer, I totally believe the diagnose that he'll be ready when the regular season starts pending any complications.

I'm not worried about his recovery from this, but I am always worried about him in general. He's always pulling something, and now this. Hope he can get healthy and stay healthy.
