Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan underwent
microfracture surgery on his left knee last week, according to Tom Pelissero of
The Minnesota Vikings' standout center underwent
microfracture surgery on his left knee last week, according to two NFL sources.
Sullivan underwent the procedure last Thursday. Dr. James
Andrews performed the surgery, which is expected to carry with it a three- to
four-month rehabilitation period. Pelissero estimates that this will sideline
Sullivan for a “good chunk” of Minnesota’s offseason program. He is expected to
make a full recovery by the time training camp begins in late July.
Despite his knee issues, Sullivan was able to start all 16
games for the Vikings during the regular season. His exceptional performance
earned him a spot as an alternate on the NFC Pro Bowl roster. Many around the
league felt that Sullivan was more deserving of a spot than Green Bay Packers
veteran center Jeff Saturday.
