UPDATE: Marshall Surgery On Other Hip

After earlier reports said that star wide receiver Brandon Marshall had surgery on the same hip that he had surgery on last year, they are turning out to be false.

The same reports said that the surgery was just a cleamup of the surgery last year.

This is also of course, false.

Instead, Marshall received surgery on his OTHER hip. The surgery is said to be minor, and coach Tony Sparano said today in his press conference that Marshall was catching balls from quarterback Chad Henne the same day of the surgery.

The fact that the surgery is only minor is not as comforting as I would like it to be. This is only because Marshall most likely knew that this surgery would be needed, and did not tell anyone because it would cause his contract value to decrease.

All of this dishonesty coming from Marshall is discomforting to me. The Dolphins require honesty from their players, and this is one of the reasons why they run such a solid organization, because everyone is on the same page. This has not been the case so far this off-season, and the Dolphins definitely do not need the same type of stuff from Marshall, who has been known to be a troublemaker for his boss at times.

While the Dolphins say the surgery was only minor, I would like to say that no surgery is minor, and players treat surgery mostly as a last resort.

After this surgery, Marshall now has two surgically repaired hips, and is out until training camp.

Oh, and by the way, despite reports earlier today, Marshall’s practice number of #19 will not be his permanently. He will definitely have a number before training camp, but my guess is that he is holding out for Davone Bess’ #15.
