Found February 08, 2013 on State of the Texans:
According to Pro Football Talk and the Houston Chronicle’s, John McClain, Houston Texans nose tackle Shaun Cody had back surgery late last week in Los Angeles. Cody had “microscopic lumbar discectomy surgery for a lumbar disc herniation” , which is nothing more than fancy name for a back surgery. Shaun Cody has been with the Texans since 2009 when he signed as a free agent after being drafted by the Detroit Lions. Cody has been starting on the defensive line since he came to Houston and started 57 games for the Texans in four seasons. He has been solid as a nose tackle, but injuries slowed him during the 2012 season. Cody missed three games due to cracked ribs and a punctured lung during the Buffalo Bills game in week nine. Being a free agent this upcoming off season, Cody’s future in Houston is in doubt and with the off season back issue, news is that he has been dealing with this injury since training camp. The Texans might be headed in a different direction with the emergence of Earl Mitchell and the possibility of getting another big body at the nose tackle position through free agency or the draft heading into the 2013 season. Surgery completed. Hemorrhoids removed and Circumcision dominated. #2birds1stone… — Shaun Cody (@ShaunCody95) January 30, 2013
