GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packer quarterback Don Majkowski underwent surgery Thursday to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and will miss the rest of the season.
Coach Lindy Infante said surgeons who performed the operation in San Diego did not characterize the injury as career threatening, but said Majkowski would not be able to throw for three to six months.
"Doctors feel very good about his chances for full recovery. There was no mention of career ending or anything remotely like that. The prognosis is a good one. They feel the repair is successful," Infante said.
He said Dr. Gary Losse and Dr. David Flood initially were performing an arthroscopic procedure to repair an impinged nerve but then discovered a 1/2-inch-by- 1/2-inch tear in a tendon in the rotator cuff.
