DT Travis Johnson Had Sports Hernia Surgery Three Weeks Ago

My FOX Houston has an interesting story about Texans DT Travis Johnson, who claimed on Tuesday that he’s on his way back to the field after surgery for a sports hernia three weeks ago:

Texans defensive tackle Travis Johnson said Tuesday in an interview with FOX 26 Sports he underwent successful surgery for a sports hernia three weeks ago in St. Louis.

Johnson said he has been bothered the past couple of years by an assortment of injuries related to the sports hernia and is hopeful the procedure will erase those problems and increase his productivity.

“I just had sports hernia surgery on the right side,” said Johnson. “It feels good. I finally got a lot of this pain out of my mid-section.

“Just trying to hurry up and get back so I can help the team out and be super-productive. This is an important year for the whole franchise.”

Johnson could be placed on the physically unable to perform (pup) list if he has not fully recovered from the surgery when training camp opens in ten days.
