LSU senior linebacker Donnie Alexander is currently practicing with a torn labrum in his shoulder that will require surgery after the team's Spring Game on Saturday, April 22nd.

Alexander has been practicing at full speed with the injury and should recover from the surgery fast, according to The Advocate:

“I’m going full,” he said. “I’m all out. I’m doing as much as I can right now.”

During practice, Alexander wears a noticeable brace on the right shoulder to keep it stabilized. It’s an old high school injury that he re-aggravated this past season. Players often play through torn labrums, a cup-shaped rim of cartilage that lines and reinforces the ball and socket joint of the shoulder.

Clapp played with his through the entirety of last season before January surgery. In less than a month, Alexander’s will be fixed, too.

Dr. Winder took care of mine recently and I'm sure he will take care of his. Couple of weeks recovery if caught in time!

The labrum is already torn, it's not going to get worse. The recovery time is 8-12 weeks. Let him go through spring and surgery as soon as it's done.
