Jim Meehan was also able to speak to Mark Few regarding the health of his beat-up backcourt.
Gary Bell Jr. had knee surgery this offseason to remove a loose body (fragments of cartilage or bone inside the knee joint), but instead they “found holes in the cartilage behind his knee cap”, which apparently is good news.
Bell Jr. plays harder than arguably any Bulldog, and it has taken a toll on his body over the past three seasons. He has broken his hand and has had multiple problems with his knees.
Bell Jr. could be heading towards a very special senior season if this surgery improves his health as it is expected to.
Kevin Pangos played through a lot of injuries this season. He had a bad case of turf toe for most of this year, and he sprained his ankle multiple times—including a rather severe sprain in the final game against Arizona.
The treatment of these nagging injuries is all the same: rest. Rest, however, was hard to come by during the season. But now, in the offseason, it appears Pangos is well on his way to being 100 percent come "Kraziness in the Kennel."
