Manumaleuna expected to have scope on right knee
Chicago Bears tight end Brandon Manumaleuna will soon undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
Manumaleuna, who signed a $15 million, five-year contract at the outset of free agency last year, is expected to have a minor procedure. Manumaleuna underwent minor arthroscopic surgery on his left knee the week before the draft last April. He was still slowed at the start of training camp. Because this cleanout will be done earlier, it’s expected that he will be full speed well before the start of camp – if there is camp this summer.
Manumaleuna has missed only two regular-season games in 10 seasons. He’s had issues in recent seasons where he’s been forced to have his knees drained during the season. These two scopes are aimed at preventing that from happening again.
