With news that Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is having surgery on his right knee and will be lost for the season, two questions immediately arise. How will this affect Machado long-term and how will this affect the Orioles short-term? Frankly, both are legitimate concerns. This will be Machado's second surgery in less than a year - one on each knee. It's his third serious injury in a little more than three years. The good news is that he is 22, he is in his physical prime and, at this age, his recuperative powers are about as heightened as they are going to get. It's much tougher to come back from knee surgeries at an advanced age. The bad news is the same.

The competition to open the season as Morgan State's starting quarterback has come down to two men. With Seth Higgins still recuperating from offseason shoulder surgery, redshirt senior Robert Council and redshirt junior Moses Skillon split reps with the first offense during a scrimmage at Hughes Stadium Wednesday. First-year coach Lee Hull confirmed that Council and Skillon are battling for the right to start at Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30. “It's down to Moses and Robert,” said Hull, a former wide receivers coach at Maryland.

Former Orioles and current Washington Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery Thursday to repair a torn right labrum. The Nationals feared the veteran's lingering shoulder injury was bad when it didn't respond as well as expected to rest and treatment, and recent doctors' evaluations and an X-ray with contrast dye revealed the tear. McLouth has been playing with a hurt labrum all season, manager Matt Williams said, but the symptoms worsened when he made a diving attempt for a triple late last month.

When the Ravens drafted imposing Virginia defensive end Brent Urban in the fourth round, the hope was that he would be fully ready by training camp after undergoing ankle surgery in February following the Senior Bowl. Urban is already well ahead of that schedule, though, as he was able to participate in everything this spring after being sidelined for a rookie minicamp. During the first week of training camp, the 6-foot-6, 298-pound former hockey player from Canada hasn't experienced any setbacks.

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters still has his right arm in a metal splint after season-ending Tommy John surgery last month. And while he returned to the team for the first time Thursday since surgery, Wieters said he expects to be around the team, and have the splint off, when he rejoins the team for good after the Orioles' West Coast trip following the All-Star break. Before Friday's game, Wieters talked about being back with his teammates, making the All-Star Game and his rehabilitation.

Minimally invasive surgery leads to fewer infections and other complications than traditional open surgery but not all hospitals are regularly offering such procedures, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University.  The researchers looked at a database of more than seven million hospitals stays at more than 1,000 hospitals and found laparoscopic methods were underused in several specific surgeries -- appendectomies, colectomies and hysterectomies, which studies have shown have better outcomes when they are done using minimally invasive techniques.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin, is “still in play” to start Monday against the Washington Nationals, manager Buck Showalter said in his news conference before Thursday's game against the Texas Rangers. Norris will take pitcher's fielding practice this afternoon and will toss either a bullpen session or a simulated game Friday. The right-hander said he hasn't had any further setbacks to his injury, and that he anticipates feeling healthy enough to start Monday, the earliest he can return from the disabled list.

Orioles radio broadcaster Fred Manfra's familiar voice returned to the airwaves Tuesday for the first time since the first week of the season. Manfra, who has worked on the club's radio broadcasts since 1993, expected to only miss a month after undergoing a right hip replacement procedure in early April. But he needed a second surgery that kept him out for a total of 80 games. Both surgeries were performed by team orthopedist Dr. Michael Jacobs. Manfra said it was difficult being away from the club for an extended amount of time.

BETHESDA - Like the superstar athletes who befriended and mentored him early in his career as he watched them grow old, Tiger Woods keeps staring at his own golfing mortality. Coming off a three-month layoff following back surgery, Woods returns to the PGA Tour this week for the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club with a bit of a different game than the one he has played for the past 18 years as a pro. “Just like M.J., I've got the fadeaway,” Woods said, referring to one of his longtime confidants, Michael Jordan.

Dylan Bundy's fast track to the majors during his first full pro season in 2012 might have some thinking that the Orioles top prospect will return to the big leagues sooner rather than later. But as Bundy prepared to pitch for the Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds on Saturday -- his second start since undergoing Tommy John elbow surgery -- the Orioles made clear that they will bring the 20-year-old right-hander along carefully. “This season is a rehab process,” Orioles player development director Brian Graham said.
