Jared Veldheer needs surgery on tricep

Yesterday I told you about Jared Veldheer getting a second MRI on a sore triceps muscle and the dangers of rushing him back. It appears that those fears have come to fruition. Jared Veldheer has torn his tricep and will require surgery according to HC Dennis Allen. I will update with developments.

Update 14:23 EST:Alex Barron will be moved to LT. IR is a very real possibility for Veldheer. Expected 3 month recovery. Add in rehab and it could be the whole season. Huge blow in a contract year.

Update 14:29 EST: Sounds like IR with designation to return for Veldheer.

Update 18:25 EST: The tear is only partial. That is significantly less time to heal and Veldheer may be able to play much of the season
