Rookie nose tackle Louis Nix III is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
"We felt like we wanted to make sure that we could have a healthy Louis Nix and not have to manage him throughout the season," O'Brien said Saturday. "As an organization, we decided to do arthroscopic surgery before training camp. I believe, from what I hear from our medical people, that he's working well and he's becoming closer and closer to being able to be back out there at some point."
Nix, the third-round draft pick from Notre Dame (83rd overall), was placed on the Active/PUP list before the start of training camp.
