    Pennington to Undergo Shoulder Surgery

    The New York Jets announced Tuesday quarterback Chad Pennington will undergo shoulder surgery following Super Bowl weekend. He is expected to be ready for the club’s upcoming training camp.

    According to Dr. Elliot Pellman, Chairman of the Club’s Medical Department, team physicians discovered the tear in Pennington’s throwing shoulder a day after New York’s 22-17 loss at Buffalo on November 7th.


    “We recommended a trial of rehabilitation to see how he would do, understanding that if he had too much discomfort or weakness, the shoulder would be operated on immediately,” Pellman said. “He did very well with his rehab. Chad received a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, who is a well-known shoulder specialist, and Dr. Andrews agreed with our assessment that he could return to the field after a rehab period.”

    After consulting with New York head coach New York Herman Edwards during the 4th quarter of the game against the Bills, Pennington was removed from play and replaced by backup Quincy Carter. The fifth-year Marshall alum would not return to game action until New York’s 29-7 home win over Houston on December 5th. During Pennington’s absence, the Green & White composed a record of 2-1.

    "We did not allow him to return to play until we were satisfied that he was strong enough and pain-free enough to return with minimal risks," Pellman said. "Was there risk? Minimal. The odds of him re-injuring the shoulder at that point were no greater than that of any other quarterback playing in the National Football League."

    Pennington started the Jets’ final five regular season games and also directed the offense during the team’s two postseason contests. After a Divisional Round playoff defeat in Pittsburgh, it was determined that Pennington would have rotator cuff surgery.

    “An MRI was done after the loss in Pittsburgh, not because he had any more pain or because of negative findings on his physical examination, but just to corroborate the anatomical findings that we found when we did his original MRI," Pellman said. "There was no additional damage. As we talked about then and as we talked about now, the shoulder will be operated on.”

    The Jets would not specify an exact date for the upcoming procedure. Renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews will operate on the franchise passer.






    "The shoulder will be operated on following the Super Bowl," Pellman said. "Chad had some personal things to take care of between now and then. The operation will be done by Dr. Andrews. He was selected by Chad. We respect his decision. Dr. Andrews has a lot of experience in doing these types of surgeries, particularly on (baseball) pitchers. This is an unusual type of injury for a professional quarterback in the National Football League. There is not a lot of experience with this type of injury and an NFL quarterback."

    I agree, it&#39;s not that Herm was withholding info that bothers me it&#39;s that it turned out so serious and he was withholding info. Chad shouldn&#39;t have even been playing.

    Herm was probably just holding back info. These coaches never play it straight.

    not sure i agree with that....The doctors felt he could play with a slight tear and had a very small risk of injuring it further. Why shouldn&#39;t he have been playing? We&#39;ve been ripping Abe for p*ssying out, here is an example of one of our players toughing it out through a painful injury that he was able to play through.

    According to Dr. Pellman, the shoulder is just as they expected now and Chad should be ready for training camp, no problem. Chad admitted during the season that he would need surgery after the season was done.

    Give me a break. The player is the ultimate decision maker. Penny knew what the risk was and as you heard the Dr. say, there was not a significant risk over the typical risks that a QB faces.

    The QB could keep playing as is, but he&#39;s going to be a better player with the surgery. What is it that you don&#39;t get? Or are you just so hyped up to knock the head coach, that you will take any opportunity, no matter how much of a reach or misrepresentation it is?

    Look, we all wanted a shot at the Super Bowl, did we not?

    I guess the injury explains why Chad wasn&#39;t so bummed when our season ended in Pittsburgh.

    its funny, herm gets ripped when he divulges too much about an injury, and then gets ripped when he doesn&#39;t fully disclose an injury...

    bottom line, the doctors cleared him to play, and Chad fought through the pain....

    with his tear, chad took us to the verge of the AFC Championship game....im glad he was playing instead of Q.

    From the conference:

    Was there risk? Minimal. The odds of him re-injuring the shoulder at that point were no greater than that of any other quarterback playing in the National Football League."

    Why shouldn&#39;t he have been playing?
