WE have received some positive news on injuries with confirmation that Ed Smith’s knee surgery will be done on July 11.
It will involve the knee on which he has had two reconstructions, but the operation will be to investigate a torn cartilage and is in no way connected to his previous and more serious surgery on the same joint.
“At this stage I’m not too sure what will be involved because it all depends on whether the surgeon can repair the cartilage or whether he will have to remove it. He won’t know until he gets in there.
“I could then face a recovery period of six weeks or maybe longer, all depending on what he finds.”
