Former Corrigan-Camden Bulldog and Minnesota Viking Chase Ford had foot surgery Friday.
Ford broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot. However, this is not the first time the tight end has broken his foot this football season.
Ford was out during the preseason with a break in that same foot, but did make a comeback. He said he's confident he'll be able to come back stronger from this surgery.
"That's my plan. That's my intentions," said Ford. "I feel like if I can play all year on good feet, it could be a better season for me this year and God willing, He blesses me with that."
Last season was Ford's second year in the league. He recorded his first NFL career touchdown against the Washington Redskins in Week 9, and tallied 258 yards on the year.
Ford said once he's out of his walking boot from this surgery, he'll be going back up to Minnesota to start his rehab and get ready for the next season.
