Tully Banta-Cain Out 4-5 Weeks After Abdominal Surgery

BOSTON (CBS) – Just as the NFL lockout is finally set to end, it appears Patriots linebacker Tully Banta-Cain will have to wait a little longer to play football again.

Banta-Cain had abdominal surgery last Friday, which will leave him out of action for 4-5 weeks, sources told WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche.

The 8-year veteran finished with 45 tackles and 5.0 sacks last season for the Pats.
