ESPN’s Tom Friend is reporting that Jimmy Clausen’s toe surgery was successful:
Jimmy Clausen’s right big toe was successfully repaired Tuesday, according to foot
surgeon Mark Myerson, and the former Notre Dame quarterback is expected
to be healthy well ahead of the April 22 NFL draft.
“Everything went extremely well,” Myerson said. “Jimmy should have no problem throwing the ball in early April.”
According to Myerson, the quarterback’s rehab should take two to three
months. St. Louis and Washington, two teams that pick in the top four,
are known to be intrigued by Clausen and will likely interview him at
the upcoming NFL combine and ask him to throw sometime before draft day.
Not exactly a surprise, as I’m guessing the Clausen family, and his agent Gary Wichard, found the guru of foot surgeons to operate on JC’s big toe.
Still, it’s good to hear that Jimmy will recover in time to hold his pre-draft Pro Day.
