Jolly starts his comeback attempt

This isn’t the first time that Johnny Jolly has had to try to fight the odds and make a comeback in the NFL, but it is the first time his health is an issue.

Jolly had surgery in early January to repair a bulging disc between the 5th and 6th cervical vertebrae.  The Green Bay Packers placed him on injured reserve late in the season.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jolly has received permission from his surgeon this week to start doing cardio and light lifting.  Two weeks from now, Jolly will undergo an X-ray and MRI to determine whether he can step up his workouts and get closer to a return to football.

Packers safety Sean Richardson had a similar procedure done early last year and he eventually returned late last season, appearing in six games with the Packers.

Jolly is an unrestricted free agent, so there’s no guarantee even if he does return to the game, that it will be with the Packers.
