Cooley expected to return

Jim Zorn is talking on his radio show right now and said tight end Chris Cooley’s surgery to insert three screws for his right ankle fracture was a success and Cooley could be back in four weeks. 

“The first thought was that he was going to be out eight weeks; this particular surgery was done - it was very non-evasive procedure and it was done in such a way that it if all goes well, will get him back in as little as four weeks,” Zorn said. “It’s a risk and it looks like it’s going to be a pretty good risk.”

Zorn said Cooley will not be placed on injured reserve, which would have ended his season.

Zorn said he stood “about 2 feet” from Cooley during the surgery in Baltimore. He was in operating room after getting Cooley and the doctor’s permission. Zorn later watched an ankle replacement surgery.
