Cam Jordan recently underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his lower back, according to a source.
The New Orleans Saints defensive end is expected to make a full recovery and is not expected to miss much time. The procedure was to clean up something in his lower back.
The issue is said to have been minor. Jordan played through the injury late last season and played in the Pro Bowl.
Jordan has alluded to the procedure on social media in recent days. When safety Kenny Vaccaro commented on players losing muscle mass after undergoing surgery, Jordan replied by saying, “That’s what I keep tellin myself 8 weeks of rehabbin ain long.”
The 26-year-old did not miss a game last season and finished the year with 10 sacks. He is expected to be a major part of the defense moving forward.
Jason Cole of Bleacher Report first reported this news.
