That's not good, he is one of our better linemen.
As scary as the idea of brain surgery is, if all goes well, recovery time isn't that long compared to torn ligament or other normal sports injury. That could be a very serious condition though if not corrected properly.

It all depends on the location. If it's on the periphery somewhere, recovery before season is feasible. If it's deep, he might not play again.
