Don't Worry SDSU Fans, Quinn Kaehler's Elbow is Fine
Kaehler, about to enter his first full season as starting quarterback, was poised for a big year with a crop of young, talented wide receivers on one of the favorites to win the Mountain West Conference.
But oh boy, elbow surgery? Panic time for the Aztecs, right?
When one hears about surgery of any kind on a quarterback's throwing arm, it’s natural to freak out. But Aztec fans don’t need to worry.
Kaehler had zero muscle damage in his right arm that needed fixing. Doctors simply needed to remove screws from a surgery in high school that began to push out of Kaehler’s elbow at the end of last season, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The story also reports that Kaehler’s recovery simply consists of waiting for the elbow muscles to heal from the minor surgery, and head coach Rocky Long said that Kaehler would be ready to go by May.
Kaehler completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 3,007 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his junior season in 2013.
