The sad saga of New York Giants tight end Daniel Fells continues, and not in a good way. Per a report from NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Fells recently had a fifth surgery to address an MRSA infection in his foot, but he could also end up having it amputated if the infection does not dissipate.
Fells is currently in intensive care and been ruled out for the season by the Giants. His infection stems from a cortisone injection he received for an ankle and toe injury. Per Rapoport, more surgeries are on the horizon.
The Giants have had their facilities scrubbed and are working hard to prevent the spread of MRSA among the team, but that doesn’t take away from the sad end Fells’ career could have if he does indeed lose his foot. He is only 32 and has spent time with the St. Louis Rams, Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders, Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on top of the Giants, and has 111 receptions for 1,307 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Campus Sports will update Fells’ condition as any new information becomes available.
