Article Summary:

The procedures studied were ACL reconstruction, Achilles tendon repair, patellar tendon repair, cervical disc surgery, lumbar discectomy, sports hernia repair, knee microfracture, open reduction-internal fixation of radius, ulna, and ankle, and lower extremity long bone fractures.

The study found that NFL players whose injuries involve tendons and ligaments, like Conklin, fared worse than players who dealt with bone injuries.

While the average recovery time from the date of surgery to the first regular-season game was 339 days, players that dealt with patella tendon repairs did not come back for 391 days. The average games played after a patella tendon surgery was 29, compared to the overall average of 35.8, and the median career length after surgery was just 1.1 years.
