    I guess the good news is it isn't heart related.

    I guess that implies PUP and/or IR.

    I think a better comparison is Cannon or Ballard or even Demps. I suspect that we knew of the medical situation and would be willing to wait if necessary. After all, we have Armstead signed to a minimal contract for 3 years. He would be an RFA in the 4th. So, even if doesn't play this year, we haven't lost much money. It seems that he is a good option for the money.

    Fenene was a much different situation. First, Fenene didn't properly disclose his medial history, and then the team doctors failed to figure out that he would be affected by a serious physical condition.

    most likely the surgery was a debridement to remove dead or infected tissue. Remember gronk had surgery last winter, that was most likely a debridement to remove infected tissue from his forearm that he broke. usually the infection is caused by staph.
