Surgery for Tully Banta-Cain – Metro US

Surgery for Tully Banta-Cain

The Patriots’ defense took a hit this weekend.

OLB Tully Banta-Cain reportedly underwent abdominal surgery Friday to fix a lingering problem from last year.

It’s a big deal: The recovery time is 4-5 weeks, which will push up against Week 1 of the regular season. The Pats were thin at LB before, and they’re dangerously so now.

That means it’s free agency time … as soon as a CBA is passed. Mark Herzlich, please pick up the white courtesy phone.
