UPDATE: "In a two-hour procedure, a titanium rod was inserted into Nick's fractured right femur. The surgery went well. He is expected to make a full recovery, and be ready for Spring Training 2007. Nick will remain in the hospital for one or two days, and begin his rehabilitation today."Poor Nick. Will this keep Austin away from the buffet?
Johnson suffered a fractured right femur in the bottom of the eighth inning of Saturday's game against the New York Mets at Shea Stadium. He underwent surgery to repair the femur last night at New York Hospital Queens. Dr. Peter Dzenis performed the surgery with assistance from Dr. Shaffer.
