Justin Smith to Have Surgery on Torn Triceps, Recovery Time is Three Months


Justin Smith is a man among boys, and there is no doubt about that.

Smith sustained the injury against New England in Week 14 and missed the final two regular season games, but returned to action in the postseason.

He will have surgery to repair his triceps this week, and a CSN is reporting that the recovery time will be three months.
