Giants’ Sehorn Undergoes Surgery

September 18, 1998

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ New York Giants cornerback Jason Sehorn underwent surgery on Friday to repair injuries to his right knee during an exhibition game in August.

The operation at The Hospital for Special Surgery at Cornell Medical Center reconstructed Sehorn’s anterior cruciate ligament. The operation, performed by team physician Dr. Russell Warren, was successful, according to a news release.

Sehorn tore his ACL as well as the medial collateral ligament when tackled while returning the opening kickoff of the game on Aug. 20. The MCL injury healed with rehabilitation and rest.

The injuries forced the team to put Sehorn on injured reserve for the year.

Sehorn, a five-year veteran who led the NFL East champion Giants with six interceptions last season, was matter-of-fact about his injury when it happened.

``Hey, life goes on,″ he said at the time. ``I was running back a kick and got hurt.″
