    Mike Klis explained the situation today. Siemian thought it would be an optional surgery, but his surgeon saw during the procedure that there was more damage to his shoulder. Siemian thought it was a grade 3 separation, but the surgeon diagnosed it as a grade 5.

    At first, Trevor Siemian downplayed it as “optional surgery.”

    His left shoulder, injured in a week 4 win at Tampa Bay during the 2016 season, was still giving him trouble as he tried to lift weights in late-December.

    Get it repaired, no big whip.

    But then his orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Neal ElAttrache, discovered more damage than originally thought while executing the procedure on Jan. 5 in Los Angeles.

    Instead of a grade 3 separation in the AC joint of Siemian’s non-throwing shoulder, Dr. ElAttrache saw ligaments torn in the areas where the clavicle, scapula and AC joint connect. A more severe grade 5 separation was diagnosed. This was not “optional” surgery. The operation was required.

    When the surgery was finished, a four to six-month recovery period was given.

    That makes sense. Hopefully he's on the shorter end for recovery and gets some time to throw in OTAs.

    really? how in the world does Trevor think he's taking optional surgery when in fact you're fixing the worst AC separation you can possibly have? It's kind of hard to compute that knowing the degree of pain involved with a grade 5 separation. If that's true and Trevor played through that, he's more of a trooper than anyone's given him credit for.

    I don't know if I buy any of it. Possible they could be playing up the injury to justify adding a Veteran, while lowering the risk of losing Trevor.
