What kind of repair time (i.e. elbow full strength/extension) are we talking about? 6-8 weeks? 3 months?
As an aside, the Texans should be looking for another Center anyway, given Myers age. No?
3 months is probably a good bet. But since we don't know the exact pathology or exact procedure we can't prognosticate exact level of performance return. Tennis elbow release? chipped off cartilage? ligament repair? arthritis?..............none of these are what you would want to have in your starting center.
