Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes emerged from Super Bowl XLVI with a knee that required surgery. According to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, Spikes has gone under the knife. (Or the needle or whatever they use when they do arthroscopic surgery.)
The procedure cleaned out cartilage.
There currently are no details regarding whether and to what extent the procedure will limit Spikes in the offseason.
Spikes missed eight regular-season games, and he started each of the team’s three postseason games.
