BehindTheMedspeak: Reggie Bush rolls the dice and undergoes microfracture surgery

Reggie+bush_041408

The star Saints running back (above) recently underwent the procedure and though I heard it mentioned in passing on TV, I have yet to read a word about it in the dead tree media I peruse on a daily basis.

This is no trivial joint cleanout but a major procedure with a wide range of potential outcomes, sometimes letting a player return to his previous peak but in other instances resulting in a performance fall-off and even becoming a career-ender.

I sure hope Bush comes back with every bit of the lightning-quick shiftiness and cutting ability he dazzles with when he's healthy and at his best.

The knee is one complex, tricky joint.
