Want to see how Vinny's doing?
There is a short video presentation on Lightning TV, which is part of tampabaylightning.com. It shows Vinny starting the rehab from his April 15 surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Recovery time is believed to be three to four months which means the star center should be ready for September's training camp.
The surgery was done by noted orthopedist James Andrews.
Vinny, who is shown working with assistant trainer Jason Serbus, says all the right things about how it is "going well" and how he is "excited to be back to 100 percent." But the funniest moment is when he talks about how the surgery made him realize "how important your arm is, from cutting your food to getting dressed."
He says it with a smile.
