New York Jets linebacker, Bart Scott had surgery on his elbow this week to clean-out aggravating bone chips, according to the Newark Star Ledger.
Scott reportedly did not have any structural damage to the ligaments or bones, meaning his recovery time will most likely be a few weeks. It is believed he should be able to participate in the Jets’ off-season program which begins April 16.
He will be entering his fourth year with the Jets and has the potential to remain with them for an additional two years after this year. While playing for the Baltimore Ravens in 2006, he was selected to the Pro-Bowl and was named an All-Pro after collecting 9.5 sacks and two interceptions. This season Scott had 53 tackles, 4.5 sacks and one forced fumble. Throughout his career he has 494 tackles, 22.5 sacks, and three interceptions.
