SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)... has published a story updating Dean Ambrose’s surgery. He had a high-grade triceps tendon injury, and he underwent successful surgery from Dr. Jeffrey Dugas. It lasted about 40 minutes. “He tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon,” Dr. Dugas told “He basically tore about 50 percent of the triceps tendon away from the bone. So yesterday we repaired that back down to the bone where it tore off of. The surgery was very straightforward; we removed all of the extra bursal tissue — all of that extra swollen stuff around his elbow.” The report says it’s unknown how much time he will miss of in-ring action.
