Jarvis Landry’s hip started bothering him during the 2019 preseason training camp. He was held out of much of camp and practiced sparingly throughout the season. He rested it three weeks after the season, trying to avoid surgery, and then played in the Pro Bowl. It was during that game, when he flared it up while just “jogging around” that he realized how much pain he was in. He decided that the non-operative route wasn’t working and elected to have surgery.
Surgery was performed on February 4, 2020. During his arthroscopic hip surgery, his surgeon “shaved down some cartilage and removed two pieces of bone embedded within his labrum.” He then repaired Landry’s labrum. Following the surgery, the surgeon stated that he expected the hip to move to the side better. So what was the underlying problem?
