[He] had slightly of a process — not a surgical procedure, however a process — extra of a PRP-type deal within the offseason to attempt to handle it. Didn’t get to a spot the place he actually wants it to be. I believe long-term, everybody in L.A. thinks that is going to be tremendous. I do not sense any stress about it, but it surely’s a quarterback. It is a throwing arm. Clearly, one thing we have to monitor going ahead.”
