Sammie Coates recovering from sports-hernia surgery

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Sammie Coates (finger/ groin) underwent sports-hernia surgery following the conclusion of the 2016 season for a groin injury that went unreported on the team's injury report throughout the course of the year.

Fantasy Impact

It was reported earlier in the offseason that Coates underwent, and was recovering from, finger surgery. However, Fowler states that Coates, instead, underwent a sports hernia procedure only, following the conclusion of the 2016 campaign. The groin injury, which was never included on Pittsburgh's injury report in 2016, did not affect the wideout's ability to participate in practice. Therefore, it did not have to be listed per league rules as a team is only required to report an injury that renders a player's availability to practice or appear in a game. Similar to Le'Veon Bell's situation in which he was dealing with a groin injury for weeks prior to the AFC Championship Game, and the team's failure to report the matter, Coates' groin injury is also subject to investigation by the NFL to ensure that the Steelers were in full compliance with league rules.
