Wide receiver Mardy Gilyard has undergone surgery to repair a nagging wrist injury that bothered him even before he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams.
"He had it when he came here," coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "I think he had it in Cincinnati." Gilyard was a fourth-round draft pick last April out of the University of Cincinnati, and from the earliest days of spring minicamp and practices the wrist appeared to bother him.
The surgery took place in mid January, with pins inserted in the wrist, and the wrist placed in a cast. Team medical officials hope Gilyard will be available for minicamps this spring, but want to make sure he takes the proper time to make sure the wrist fully heals.
