After breaking his right thumb back in December, Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso was forced to undergo surgery. This is the second time Kiko has had surgery on his thumb.
Read more on why Kiko Alonso needed a second surgery…
If you recall the injury to Kiko Alonso’s right thumb occurred during the Ravens game in which the Dolphins lost.
Kiko Alonso reportedly went back to his doctor in early January, only to learn that he needed surgery. LatinoAthlete.com has just got word per Adam Caplan of ESPN that Alonso had a second surgery on the thumb after Miami lost to the Steelers.
Now that Kiko Alonso has undergone surgery for a second time, it’s been reported that he will need six weeks’ recovery, per Caplan. This is a perfect time for Alonso, since he is in the offseason.
During his first year in Miami Kiko his injury cost him to miss one game but started the other 15 regular seasons games. To date, Alonso has 115 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and an interception return for a touchdown. Alonso is set for restricted free agency this offseason.
However, the Dolphins are planning on having Kiko return, but defensive coordinator Matt Burke has a new plan of action. He is thinking about placing Alonso to outside linebacker next season, which we previously told you about.
Would that be a good strategy? What do you think?
