Merling under went hernia surgery this week (LINK
) Do the Vikes start looking at Campbell....I mean Marrdro how does this factor on the 17th pick
Hernia's aren't that serious of an injury.. i don't really foresee his surgery being a problem... and i doubt they start looking at campbell.. from what i've heard, Campbell has had weight problems and his play was far from stellar last year marred by much inconsistency...
he's seen more as a prospect with potential based on his previous year rather than what he did the past year...
No its not that serious but Merling could be out for most of this season
, remember Birk had the same surgery in the training camp and he was done for the season.
I also heard Campbell was having problems with his shoulder and that affected his play and also led to him only doing 16 reps at the benchpress during the combine.
Do you know this?
That wouldn't help our situation very much then.
But, considering Birk ended up having double hip surgery
, says to me his was probably worse.
Way more wear and tear than what Merling has in three years of college ball.
My father has had hernia surgery four or more times, and has kept going to back to work...given some time off, I'm not thinking even a full month, or right around that.
Pretty good chance he's ready by training camp, it would seem to me...?
