Panthers | Foster to Have Microfracture Surgery

Steve Reed reports for the Gaston Gazette that Carolina Panthers rookie RB DeShaun Foster (knee), who is out for the remainder of the year, has decided to undergo microfracture surgery on his left knee after seeking a second opinion. Foster had surgery before the season after a piece of cartilage had torn off under his kneecap. The scar tissue never formed after the surgery so Foster continued to have pain and swelling in the knee when he ran. The team doesn’t believe it compares to the same surgery WR Patrick Jeffers had in 2000. He’ll likely have the surgery in the next few weeks.
