Shaun Cody had back surgery last week

Texans nose tackle Shaun Cody underwent back surgery last week, after a season of playing through a number of problems.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Cody underwent a “microscopic lumbar discectomy surgery for a lumbar disc herniation.”

In layman’s terms, that’s “back surgery.”

Cody suffered a back injury in the preseason, but played 13 games. At one point, he was described as having a “rib issue,” which turned out to be a punctured lung and broken ribs suffered in a game against the Bills.

The 30-year-old Cody has been a solid piece of a very good defense, one which was slowed by multiple injuries last year.

    Cody is a tank that clogs up the nose and takes on two defenders every play. He will be back even stronger.

    Cody won’t be back because they’ll draft Brandon Williams from Missouri Southern, Jesse Williams from Alabama or John Jenkins from Georgia; cheaper, younger, stronger and quicker.

    Cody won’t be back because he stinks. I do like “On The Nose” though.

    If he played that position this season with a herniated disc needing a discectomy he is much of a man. Whatever he was paid it wasn’t enough.

    In layman’s terms that is going to “lay him up” for a good while.
