Ramses Barden requires second procedure on leg

Ramses Barden will require a second procedure to “clean out his leg” this week as the New York Giants wide receiver still works to recover from a broken ankle and ligament damage suffered during November.

According to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, Barden has swelling in the leg and the cleanout should help clear that up. General manager Jerry Reese told Garafolo the situation is not cause for concern and Barden remains on the right path.

A minor surgery this week, though, wasn’t in the plans so it’s not like he’s on schedule. Fortunately, he’s got plenty of time to heal. He’ll need to continue the rehab on his own if the NFL locks out the players later this week as many expect.
