With the knowledge that we are on perhaps the fourth procedure, no. It’s not likely to be repaired unless they take the extra steps to look into autonomic causes. It’s sad but true. I like the guy, but I wouldn’t have drafted him. 

Hopefully, the best doctors get this right with the latest science behind what to target during surgery.

If it improves his condition at all, could he still play in the league?

Is it career threatening right now or precautionary their current move?

He cleared medically entering the Draft. You’d think it was a cleanup move at this point not a retry all over. :shrug:

Yes

Preventative and career threatening if they can’t fix

It probably wont be as long as most think. Most common arrhythmia with wpw is actually psvt (paroxysmal supraventricular tacchycardia) not a-fib. Ablation is a procedure where the irritable area of the heart is stimulated to reproduce the arrythmia so that that area can then be burned or killed with rf (radio frequency) waves. Recovery time is minimal. Not always successful.

Several articles reference his heart rate.  Here is one from draft network

I wouldn't put too much stock into numbers like that.  They are almost always just quoted from the same original story.

Listen man I think everyone hopes the best for Kaleb, and trading up for a RT was absolutely necessary, but one with a heart condition was a decision TD had to be positive of. Reminds me of Sam Baker having 3 back surgeries in 5 years. Not ideal. 

Doctors were sure so let’s blame the non Doctors anyway?

Logical

btw, this is yet to be shown to stop him from football. He is scheduled to return.

No..it's saying I was hoping that Mcgary would develop enough in preseason to beat out Ty . Ty is not a starting NFL tackle. A stop gap measure at best. Ty has already proven he's not a starter. Let's give McGary a shot.

Believe me I want to, I'm a big fan of the kid.
