In what was thought ot be just a minor issue during the Houston Texans week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings, it has been determined by RB Arian Foster and his doctors that he should have surgery to correct his irregular heartbeat issue, reports Alex Flanagan of the NFL Network.
The report says he'll likely have the surgey in about a month.
Seems like an old issue of Arian's crept up as he had been experiencing heart beat issues since he was 12 years old, but this one was the first time he felt it in a game.
Over the years, he's had about 8 incidents with an irregular heartbeat.
Here's what he'll likely undergo (from the Mayo Clinic): a cardiac ablation "typically uses catheters — long, flexible tubes inserted through a vein in your groin and threaded to your heart — to correct structural problems in your heart that cause an arrhythmia."
At least he won't have to go under the knife.
