There isn’t unanimous opinion about the necessity of the operation, however. Texans General Manager Rick Smith said Friday that the team’s physicians don’t think Foster needs to have an operation because of the irregular heartbeat, which Foster has dealt with since childhood.
“Our medical team continues to monitor it. He missed half of a practice and half of a game and the doctors treated him. We’re comfortable with where he is,” Smith said, via Mark Berman of KRIV in Houston.
Foster will obviously have the final say on whether or not he has the operation, which is known as a heart ablation.
It sounds like one or more "outside" cardiology specialists may have given him recommendation for the ablation........that runs contrary to the "team" physicians' recommendations. My bet is that book may be reopened somewhere down the line.
