DL Armond Armstead undergoes surgery, no timetable for return
|07.29.13 at 9:56 pm ET|
FOXBORO — The Patriots announced Monday night that defensive lineman Armond Armstead has undergone surgery, and added that at this time, there’s no timetable for his return to football.
“Armond Armstead had surgery to treat an infection,” read the statement issued by the team after Monday night’s practice. “Armond is in good condition and is expected to make a full recovery. A timetable has not been set for his return to football.’
Armstead was placed on the non-football injury list with an illness at the start of camp, and has not been on the field all summer. He was acquired by the Patriots as a free agent this past spring after a year in the CFL where he finished with 44 tackles and six sacks to help Toronto to a Grey Cup championship.
Armstead suffered a heart attack as a collegian while at USC, but Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Sunday that Armstead’s current medical issues aren’t related to any problems he had in college.
