Saints LB Junior Galette will not need pectoral surgery
After Galette met with renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Monday, it was determined that rest and relaxation were all the five-year veteran would require.
Galette, 27, was undrafted out of Division II Stillman College in 2010 and saw action in four games as a rookie. He signed a four-year contract extension reportedly worth up to $41.5 million in September.
He had 10 sacks as a member of the Saints during the 2014 season, leading the team, and played in every Saints game over the past two seasons.
Galette was arrested on Jan. 5 and booked on charges of misdemeanor of domestic violence and battery. Those charges were dropped in February by the prosecution, which cited a lack of evidence.
