Vikings’ Stringer Has Knee Surgery

June 3, 1998

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) _ Minnesota Vikings starting right tackle Korey Stringer had arthroscopic surgery to repair cartilage damage in his left knee.

Stringer, who had the surgery Tuesday, suffered the injury in the sixth game of the 1997 season against Arizona on Oct. 5. He missed the next game but returned to start every game of the playoffs.

Stringer aggravated the injury recently playing basketball.

He is expected to return to full speed in three to four weeks, said trainer Fred Zamberletti.

Entering his fourth season, Stringer, 24, is expected to be ready for the start of training camp July 26.
