As for his back injury, Eifert said there are no long-term concerns about his back after he recently underwent surgery. The doctor told Eifert that he okay to resume playing when he’s fully recovered.
“No, I’m not,” Eifert said, via Katherine Terrell of ESPN. “Doc said I’ll be recovered to 100 percent, so I was happy to hear that.”
“The doctors said I’ll be fine. I don’t know, maybe [I’ll worry] when I’m like 80,” Eifert said. “Whenever my body is falling apart in 40 years they’ll have some kind of fix to make it better. That’s what I’m hoping for.”
