J. Cotchery (US Presswire)
Jerricho Cotchery’s 2010 season was even more impressive than originally thought. The Jets received revealed to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York that he played with a herniated disc for much of the year. Cotchery underwent back surgery (a microdiscectomy) on February to address the issue.

Doctors shaved off a piece of the disc that was pressing against a nerve. Cotchery had been battling shooting pain down his leg and into his foot, particularly after the injury escalated in October.

"It wasn't a good feeling," he said. "It was pretty painful. I wouldn't want any football player to have to go through that."
Cotchery should be fine for 2011, though the lockout is complicating his rehab.

"That's the toughest thing, not being around the people that know my body the best," he said. "I can't even talk to [the Jets' trainers], that's the crazy part about it. I like the place I go to, but everything I need is in the Jets' facility."

Cotchery’s value to the Jets could soon escalate. Starters Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes are both free agents. And so is reserve Brad Smith. Holmes figures to return, but Edwards might be tougher to keep. If one of them gets away, Cotchery would likely reclaim his starting spot.
