Joe Halahuni, the starting TE for the Oregon State football team, decided to have surgery on his injured shoulder today, according Twitter accounts of his friends, such as former OSU player Aaron Nichols.
Nichols wrote: “the Tank is getting some repair work done today, shout out to Halahuni87 best of luck with surgery.”
Halahuni is in San Diego to meet with San Diego Chargers surgeon Dr. David Chao. Halahuni was advised to have surgery and went for a second opinion.
The estimated recovery time was four-six months, which puts the senior back ready to practice in the middle of the season.
Halahuni was injured some time during the season, but doesn’t remember a specific incident. He thought it would be better by the spring, but it became worse.
That leaves one TE with playing experience on the roster in Colby Prince. Connor Hamlett and Tyler Perry are up-and-coming redshirt freshmen.
