Randy Thomas' surgery went well today

Though I hate using "well" and "surgery" in the same sentence. Come to think of it, I hate using "surgery" at all. Per the Official Site with a hat tip thrown Extreme Skins' way, emphasis mine:

Randy Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Wednesday morning. He is expected to sit out this weekend's mini-camp.
Thomas is expected to be fully healthy by the start of training camp in late July.
Though Randy Thomas' teeth are getting long, he's been injury resistent throughout his career, missing just six regular season starts in his 8-year NFL career. A quick look at his injury history per Fox Sports reveals, interestingly enough, that in 2000 he not only played through 10 grueling weeks with ankle and shoulder injuries, but did so at quarterback. Amazing! And I thought that was Vinny Testaverde out there.

What his injury history really tells us is that he's willing to play through pain and, surprisingly, he's been getting less susceptible to injuries over time. Injuries never really affected him in 2005 until his shoulder took him out of the postseason, but he recovered well and didn't even make the injury report through 2006.

I doubt that this surgery represents a lingering problem and choose to shove my head into the dirt on the knee issue until I have reason to do otherwise. Personally, I think he's the best player on our offensive line and am not afraid to say so.
