    Tully Banta-Cain out 4-5 weeks after abdominal surgery
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on July 24, 2011, 7:40 PM EDT

    Getty ImagesThe Patriotsí apparent need at outside linebacker grew a little more apparent Sunday.

    Shalize Manza Young of the Boston Globe reports that outside linebacker Tully Banta-Cain, who has led the team in sacks the last two years, underwent surgery Friday for an abdominal strain. Heís expected to miss roughly 4-5 weeks.

    Banta-Cain aggravated a previous injury during player-only workouts. Despite his solid stats the last two years, the Patriots could consider placing him on the reserve/PUP list for the open of the season if they donít think heíll truly be ready in Week One.

    This is the second injury that weíve recently heard that occurred during this offseason, following the news on Lions tackle Jeff Backus.

    We wonít be surprised if more significant injuries are learned about in the coming days as teams and media begin to catch up players they mostly havenít talked to this offseason.

    I read that he was cut today, do you think his injury made the decision or was it financial.
