When UCLA Football Coach Jim Mora was asked about Fabian Moreau’s pectoral injury after UCLA Pro Day on Tuesday, he said he thought that anything that happened to Moreau was minor and “nothing to worry about.”
Unfortunately, today, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that Moreau had successful surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Rapoport tweeted:
Meanwhile, fellow NFL Network reporter Mike Garofalo added this:
Recovery time: 4-6 months, though source says there's a hope he's back by camp. https://t.co/IjTg0Z7GEa— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 23, 2017
Ouch. So, apparently, Moreau tore his pectoral the other day and it was bad enough that he elected to have surgery.
Now, I’m not a doctor, but I’d guess that the other option was to try to let it heal and see how it goes. Considering that the recovery time is 4-6 months, it would be understandable why Moreau would opt for surgery now rather than have it wipe out the year later if he had opted for the more conservative approach.
Regardless, we wish Fabian the best of luck and hope he recovers soon!
