Texans nose tackle Shaun Cody was released from a Los Angeles hospital on Thursday after undergoing surgery on his spine, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Cody was bothered by a back injury he suffered in preseason. Dr. Robert Watkins performed a “successful microscopic lumbar discectomy surgery for a lumbar disc herniation”
at Marina Del Rey Hospital, according to a release put out by the doctor. The surgery was performed back on January 29th.
Cody, whose contract expires in March, played in 13 games last season, including 12 starts.
