Steinbach back surgery a success

Cleveland Browns guard Eric Steinbach’s back surgery was successful and the veteran offensive lineman should make a full recovery.

Steinbach had a loose unattached fragment of bone wedged on the spinal cord nerves. Once it was removed, the nerves went back into place, and Steinbach is now pain-free, according to his agent, Jack Bechta.

"There was a loose, unattached bone fragment wedge on the spinal cord nerves," Bechta said. "It was removed and the nerves laid back down in their track and Eric is 100 percent pain free. There was no other structural damage to the nerves nor did they have to touch any of the disc.'

Steinbach had been a mainstay on the Browns offensive line, starting every game the past two seasons for Cleveland. He will spend the 2011 season on injured reserve.

"The incident is very frustrating for eric because he trained harder this off-season than any season prior. He really feels the line is ready to make a major improvement and still feels they will with the guys who are there now," agent Jack Bechta said.
