Montreal Canadiens defenseman Shea Weber is set to undergo foot surgery and will miss the rest of the season. Reports suggest this was as a result of being hit with a puck, although that seems like an unlikely scenario to cause a tear. Could be a couple of different tendons injured but any tendon injury needing surgery in the foot would put him out a minimum 2 months. Looks like they are shutting him down for the season because they are going to miss the playoffs which leads me to believe it could even be longer than 8 weeks.

Sean Lannon, M.D. is an orthopaedic surgeon finishing his training in Tampa, FL at University of South Florida. Originally from the Texas Hill Country, he grew up in the glory years of Dallas Cowboys football and Greg Popovich/Tim Duncan’s reign with the San Antonio Spurs. He is a former college golfer at Loyola University of Chicago and follows the PGA tour closely.When not working, he is trying to convince his wife and 2 daughters to watch sports (mostly unsuccessfully).
