Knee Surgery For Giants' Phillips

New York Giants safety Kenny Phillips underwent microfracture knee surgery this week.

Orthopedist James Andrews performed the procedure Tuesday and Phillips, who was placed on the injured reserve list last week, faces as much as five months of rehabilitation before he can begin to run.

"It's one of the longest rehabs.... They said it's real boring," Phillips said, according to the Associated Press. "It's like watching paint dry. It's not painful, just long. I definitely want to get back to being 100 percent and get back on the field. I am going to do everything they say I should do."
