February 12, 2019
The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, but one player missed the celebration. Patriots safety Patrick Chung was not part of the squad that pushed the final minutes of the 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams. He earned a fracture, and had to watch the final quarter of the game from the sidelines. Chung had a surgery on his forearm, and now we get to see his scar!
Believe it or not, Chung decided to show us his scar and the 23 stitches on it. This was definitely a big surgery.
Chung had his forearm smashed between a teammate and Todd Gurley in the third quarter of the Super Bowl. His arm looked scary, but the safety told everyone that the surgery went well.
The scar is scary
On Monday, Chung revealed the big scar of his surgery, and it looks far from pretty. Can you imagine having 23 stitches on your entire forearm? Luckily, he feels great at the moment, and looks forward to a great success next season.
witnessed the smashing, and they knew it was bad.
“I said to (Matthew) Slater, ‘is it bad?’
He said, ‘I think he broke his arm,'” Jason McCourty said. “As a
defense, we’re on the field, and there is nobody that can replace Pat. It’s not
just like he goes down and it’s next person in. He plays safety, he plays
linebacker, he plays the most different positions on our defense so when he
goes down, it’s an adjustment on what guys can play different roles. Hats off
to the staff and us as players for adjusting. Everybody knew that we had to
pick up a little bit for Patrick and seeing him come back to the field with a
sling on just encouraged us. This was a team win.”
Patrick Chung will have
enough time to recover and get ready for the next Super Bowl run.
