Patrick Chung posts photo of his stitched up arm after surgery
It takes time, perseverance and dedication to overcome adversity – and that’s what makes a good football player.
Last Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII victory for the New England Patriots’ came at a cost for veteran safety Patrick Chung. His right forearm was fractured on a tackle early in the third quarter of the championship game. On top of that, he had already been playing through a lingering shoulder injury.
Chung got the first of two surgeries out of the way late last week. He took to Instagram to share a photo of his forearm scar that has exactly 23 stitches, which happens to be what he wears on the field.
