NFL Draft: Myles Jack told he won’t need micro-fracture surgery


Myles Jack received some pretty good news on Friday before the NFL Draft

It was always assumed, with the way that he burst onto the scene a few years ago for the UCLA Bruins, that linebacker Myles Jack would eventually be a first round pick in the NFL Draft. Well, Thursday has come and gone, and Jack was not selected as questions still linger about his knee injury.

However, the linebacker did end up receiving some good news on Friday before Day 2 of the NFL Draft gets underway. Dr. James Andrews, maybe the most respected surgeon in all of sports, has notified Jack that he will not need micro-fracture surgery on that injured knee.

With Jack receiving this information on Friday, maybe some teams now will feel a little better about taking a chance on him. We sort of all expected that he will be off the board on Day 2 anyway, but this certainly helps his cause as he looks for his first home in the NFL.

Now the question turns to which team will be the one to call his name. But when they do call it, he will not be at the draft as Jack has chosen to to stay away from the green room and watch the festivities from his hotel instead.
