Robert Woods has ankle surgery

As is typical in the off season, players get some clean up surgery for fix a myriad of ailments. Some are more significant than others.

Robert Woods getting his ankle scoped is not surprising as he mentioned it shortly before the season ended.

USC Trojans receiver Robert Woods underwent arthroscopic surgery on his injured right ankle Monday, a school spokesperson confirmed.

Woods, who will be a junior next year, originally hurt the ankle playing pick-up basketball in April. Along with nagging shoulder and elbow injuries, it bothered him for much of the 2011 season, even as he broke school and conference records for receiving yards and challenged for the Biletnikoff Trophy.

This is a pretty routine surgery as you can see below...

This is pretty much the same type of procedure like you would see in the knee...it's just a little tighter in the ankle joint.

So, there isn't really much to worry about as Woods should be ready to go for spring ball.
