10/30/09 - Eric Decker will have surgery next Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C., to fix a sprained arch in his left foot, ending his career as a Gopher, according to a Star Tribune report that was confirmed by Gophers spokesman Andy Seeley. The report said full recovery was expected for Decker in six to nine months, which would eliminate the chance of Decker playing in a potential bowl game. The 2010 NFL draft is in about six months.
Given the way we drafted Stewart, this guy might be a possibility. Never saw him play, but, his stats look good at 6'3", 215#, 4.5 40. College production was excellent before the injury. If that surgery in Charlotte was performed by our team doctor, we might have another inisde track here. Most draft sites have him as the #6-7th WR in this draft, projected about round 3. I could see us getting a steal here if he drops and we have inside knowledge of the injury. Does anyone know if it was our team doctor?
