Steve Weatherford Gets Heart Ailment Corrected

New, comments

Punter Steve Weatherford had a procedure to cure the irregular heartbeat that kept him out of the Playoff game against the Bengals.

Weatherford tells The Associated Press he had the minimally invasive procedure a week ago at Morristown Memorial Hospital, a few miles from where the team trains.

Weatherford is on blood thinners and says he feels great. He took part in voluntary team workouts Thursday for the first time since the procedure.

It has to be a huge relief to get that fixed. I'm not sure that he'll be back, but I'll always have a lot of respect for the guy for trying to kick in that game.
