OGSan Diego Chargers
May 3, 2012
Troutman will likely miss his entire rookie season with a pre-existing medical condition that the Chargers knew about when they drafted him, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Troutman recently had pectoral surgery after injuring himself while bench pressing at his hometown gym. A post-operation report was sent to all NFL teams which disclosed a five-month recovery timetable. Troutman has also been dealing with a knee injury which he aggravated at the Senior Bowl. Still, the Chargers were high enough on the player, that they were willing to wait out his injuries.
