Former Bucs kicker Martin Gramatica had surgery last week to repair tears in his lower abductor and lower abdomen, both on the right side according to the Tribune. Martin has been bothered by this injury for two and half years according to his brother, Bill. Now Bill claims that people knew his brother was hurt but I'm kinda doubting anyone else knew how bad the injury was except for Martin and his family.
Of course, it would have been nice if Martin could have told the Bucs how bad his injury was instead of having to suffer through two seasons of dreadful kicking. I can understand why Martin would keep his injury private (a fear of being cut), but if he divulged more information a year ago it would have been far easier to fix this injury earlier.
