Joe Gibbs Racing | Denny Hamlin receiving injections
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 10:53:29 -0700

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin (back) has been receiving pain-killing injections in his spine for the last two weeks in an effort to try to avoid having offseason back surgery. The injections have helped, but Hamlin won't know until the end of the season if he'll need surgery. "These last two weeks, I've gotten some treatment done, and I've felt as good as I did before the accident," he said. "Now, the 10 races before that, I felt horrible. I had to get out of the car at Richmond during practice because I just couldn't handle it anymore, and there's been several instances where it was really, really bad." Hamlin said he probably won't be 100 percent healthy until February or January of 2014. He hasn't won a race this season and sits at 32nd in the Sprint Cup standings.
