He was in a lot of discomfort on Friday and Saturday. Like I said, this dude spends up to an hour after every practice with the physio team on his back. I am afraid it is a chronic issue.
That would suck. I know regular people with chronic back pain that have had surgery or want to get surgery and even if you get it done, you are never 100%. It's hard to imagine any athlete in any sport having long term success with a back condition. Just when EJ has turned a corner this happens. Hopefully it'll go away with rest in the off season or with surgery.
When did his back issues start? Was it back in st louis or did it only happen recently?
