Chad Greenway will have arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday after having an MRI to check out the reason for knee problems that have bothered him this spring. Coach Leslie Frazier said that Greenway will miss the rest of OTAs and next week’s minicamp, but is having the surgery now in order to be ready to go when the team starts camp in July.

Frazier: “He had a little tension in his knee. We just wanted to get it done now rather than run into a situation where we get into camp and it continues to bother him and then we’d have some issues that we’d have to deal with there. We’re going to have that done.”

Good decision to do it now, rather then wait and see approach.

Chad Greenway's arthroscopic knee surgery "went fine" on Wednesday morning, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said, reiterating the strongside linebacker should be ready when training camp begins in late July. The same goes for undrafted rookie linebacker Nathan Williams, who had a previously unannounced scope on one of his ankles that has given him trouble since his days at Ohio State and sidelined him the past two weeks at OTAs.

Frazier: "Just wanted to go back in, same thing [as Greenway's,] just kind of clean it up."

The evidence-based Cochrane Review on arthroscopic debridement of the knee:

Main Results: Three RCTs, with a total of 271 patients, were included. They had different comparison groups and a moderate risk of bias. One study compared arthroscopic debridement with lavage and with sham surgery. The study found no significant difference when compared with lavage. Compared with sham surgery, the study found worse outcomes for arthroscopic debridement at two weeks (weighted mean difference for pain = 8.7; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.7 to 15.8; function = 7.7; 95% CI, 1.1 to 14.3; NNH = 5) and no significant difference at two years. The second trial, at higher risk of bias, compared arthroscopic debridement with arthroscopic washout and found that arthroscopic debridement significantly reduced knee pain compared with washout at five years (relative risk = 5.5; 95% CI, 1.7 to 15.5; NNT = 3). The third trial, also at higher risk of bias, compared arthroscopic debridement with closed-needle lavage and found no significant difference.

Authors’ Conclusions: There is high-quality evidence that arthroscopic debridement has no benefit for typical osteoarthritis of the knee (mechanical or inflammatory causes).

that a lot of what doctors have us do serves no real medical purpose in achieving better outcomes than doing nothing.....I think....

So, in other words, there's a good chance he'll win DPOY awards this year, right?

Wink

Anyways, I hope he doesn't have any setbacks with this. Greenway is a very good player for us, and he is perhaps the most underrated OLB in the league.

Losing him for an extended amount of time would really hurt this team.

Greenway: “It feels good. It feels great. Six days out [from surgery] and I’m plugging along, getting better. Rehabbing with Suge and the boys. Things are good. It was minor and just something that needed to be done. If I risked going into the season, then you miss training camp, miss games and that’s not something we wanted to do."

“From the knee perspective, it will be 100 percent good to go. The organization has done a great job – dealing with the medical staff right away in ’06 – of really protecting the guys and doing the right things. So when they thought it was the right thing to do, I agreed and said, ‘Let’s do it,’ and I completely trust in what they had to say. Obviously, it’s a big credit to Dr. Boyd and Mr. Sugarman.”

It might be different in the case of a professional athlete. The opening scenario in that paper is about a 53 year old man. Greenway's probably has one of the most a-typical jobs in the world, that puts a lot of stress on his knees.

I'm sure the Vikings wouldn't have him get surgery if they thought it was frivolous.

Whether he had made the Top 100 list or not, Chad Greenway is proud of the role he has on the team and has been a vocal leader in the offseason program. Leadership comes with experience and Greenway has embraced it, both with the ever-changing linebacker room and the team as a whole.

Greenway: “Obviously, you think the list is genius when you’re on it and ridiculous when you’re not. You can take too much stock into lists. You are what you are. If you’re important to your organization and your team, you may not be a top-100 player, but you may be a very good player for your organization and important to their success and hold more value to them. The big thing is having the respect of your teammates, the people you play against and the coaches. If you have that, that’s what is important. A ranking is just a number.”

“Our offseason is important to all of us. I’ve always made it a point to take part in the offseason program and be around the facility. I’ve always made it a point to take part in the offseason program and be around the facility. As I became one of the older veterans, I thought it was important to lead by example and set the tone for the younger guys.”
