Some player injuries are discussed like they’re being prepared for a medical journal. Daily updates, additional medical opinions, latest X-rays.
And some just aren’t discussed at all?
Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis had left knee arthroscopic surgery on Friday, which seemed to be news to most everyone but his doctor and wife, who first announced it on Twitter on Sunday.
Dr. Neal ElAttrache performed what the Dodgers called on Monday -- following this? -- a cleanup procedure and said they expect him to begin rehabbing the knee next week, begin his normal training routine in six weeks and be ready to start the 2013 season.
There was no mention of Ellis battling knee problems during the season. But the Dodgers said he sustained tears to his medial and lateral meniscus, which ElAttrache “debrided” in a half-hour procedure at Kerlan Jobe.
