Yep. Bird's was so bad that he needed surgery to have a couple of vertebrae fused together - of course, once that operation took place, he could never play again professionally afterwards. Marvel is damaged goods at this point, unfortunately.

I wouldnt count him out just yet. All he had was a discectomy which is removal of a disc and from what I understand it was pinching on a nerve.

What '76 is describing with Bird (Posterior lumbar intervertebral fusion) is more invasive that clipping out some pieces of a disc. Its like ACL repair vs. scoping a knee to clean it out.
