Two starting cornerbacks for the Arizona Cardinals recently underwent foot surgeries
According to the Arizona Republic via ProFootballTalk, the Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and Justin Bethel, who is also a captain on Special Teams, both underwent surgery this week to repair nagging injuries suffered during the 2015 season.
Both players are expected to be ready for training camp in July according to Kent Somers, Peterson suffered an injury in the match-up against the Bengals in November, and wasn’t on the field for the final defensive plays of the game, seen on the sideline sitting and watching.
Bethel had a foot fracture that did not heal on its own the way the team would have liked having played through it as the season progressed. A special team’s expert, making the Pro Bowl in three consecutive seasons, he struggled in the latter half of the season when thrust into the starting roll with injuries to Jerraud Powers.
Powers, who was a free agent this offseason, recently visiting the team, but no signing news has been released by the team. At this time many expect the Cardinals to look to the draft rather than make a bit splash in free agency, like the recently un-franchised Josh Norman.
"Surgery went great thanks to Dr. Anderson & his team! Appreciate the prayers P2 Nation!"
We can only hope for a speedy recovery for both players, Peterson should be back for OTAs in May and June, Bethel will not be back in action until Training Camp in July.
