In the 2010 training camp, Bass suffered a significant concussion. Near the end of the 2010 season, Bass suffered what was misdiagnosed initial as a jaw injury. The next week he was determined to have suffered another concussion and missed a game. The last game of the season, he suffered a rib injury but managed to return to the game and finally end the season
In the 2011 season, Bass missed several games due to headaches, then later neck issues came into question (cervical discs can cause very severe headaches).
In the 2013 offseason, he underwent surgery for elbow bone spurs. Even earlier in this offseason Bass underwent a surgery that was only identified by Coughlin as "a little surgery on his body" which was most likely a minimally-invasive cervical disc surgery.
In the 2nd game of the 2013 preseason he suffered a "sprain of his MCL," which caused him to miss a couple of regular season games. He then had recurrence of neck problems leading to 3 missed games, but managed to avoid season-ending surgery. Unfortunately, he re-injured his MCL the first drive of the first game in which he returned. From there, he was placed on IR at the end of the season. In the addition to the above, Bass intermittently dealt with hip and shoulder problems in the 2013 season.
He has subsequently undergone knee surgery for the injury that cut his 2013 season short........he is still "recovering." There is also a question as to if Bass has not also had a neck procedure during his post IR period.
He's essentially missed 18 games in 3 seasons.
Do I still hear a bid?
