Doughty Recovering Well from Surgery

From Jason La Canfora:

Safety Reed Doughty said he is "feeling great" 10 days after undergoing lumbar fusion surgery. The operation corrected a fractured vertebre that was putting pressure on a nerve, Doughty said, and causing him to lose in his leg and foot.

Doughty said the relief was almost immediate and that he was walking the day after the Oct. 31 surgery. Doughty said he will begin pool rehab soon and hopes to be running in two-to-four months.

"By OTAs [organized team activities in the spring] I should be able to practice full go, because we don't do any hitting in OTAs," he said.

The Redskins placed Doughty on the injured reserve list last month, ending his season.

I wish him a speedy recovery. Hopefully next year he'll be 100% healthy

Best of luck to Reid, he always comes off in every interview as a nice guy, but sadly I think the skins have found better talent at that position. If Doughty comes back and contributes great.

it would be tough to play without a leg and foot

Do players often come back and play effectively after having a broken bone in their back?

Often enough to stay on a roster, get another number, then re-sell that number, etc.
