Apparently the Green Bay Packers will not have the services of the fourth-round pick until later on this summer. Last season, outside linebacker Vince Biegel was expected to lead the Wisconsin Badgers’ pass rush and he did so for the first few weeks of the season before suffering a foot injury and missing a pair of games. Unfortunately for the Badgers, both games he missed were close losses to conference foes, as they fell at Michigan and against Ohio State at home.
Biegel returned just 23 days after his original foot surgery and ended up posting a solid season overall, recording four sacks and six tackles for loss on 44 total tackles. He then became the Green Bay Packers’ fourth draft choice in 2017, being selected with the first pick of round four.
The dream of playing for his home team is coming true for Biegel, but apparently the dream will be on hold for a few more weeks. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Biegel had follow-up surgery on the same foot that cost him those two games last fall. Demovsky adds that the team is “hopeful” that he will return for the start of training camp in late July, but says it is “no guarantee”.
Packersnews.com’s Ryan Wood is hearing a more optimistic timeline, however, reporting that the team “expects” Biegel to be back in time for camp.
This is a disappointing setback for Biegel, who also suffered a minor hand injury during rookie orientation practice on May 5th. He returned to practice the next day with a cast on his hand, however. He also put forth an excellent workout at this year’s Scouting Combine despite any lingering issues with the foot injury.
Stay tuned for more information on Biegel’s progress as the days tick down to the start of camp on July 26th.

Geez....not a great way to start your career. Hope he gets healthy, so he doesn't fall too far behind the other rookies.
Better it happened now then the regular season.

Spoke to one of my medical experts:

From what I can tell Biegel experienced a re-break of the same surgically repaired bone he broke in September. It appears he had a screw inserted and was playing 23 days after surgery. Shame on the WI med staff if that’s all true.

On a re-break they will reinsert a larger screw and use a bone graft [either from another part of Biegel’s body or synthetic Bone (demineralized bone matrices) aspirated with Biegel’s marrow]. My guy prefers the synthetic option [Though that's for regular active humans, not sure if that applies to elite athletes]. The normal return to elite athletic activity is about 12 weeks. That’s the middle of August, there’s a good chance he starts on PUP.

There should be no short term loss in athletic performance, but it might cut his career a bit short. However, if the September surgery was not fully healed [likely] and he was experiencing discomfort/pain [likely] that could account for a drop in performance. This means Biegel could more explosive after the surgery than he showed at combine and last part of Sr season at WI. The odds of a third break are about 4-5%.

One reason why I try and keep my rookie expectations down.

Datone Jones suffered that ankle injury his first pre-season game and fell so far behind his 1st season was wasted
This injury keeps Biegle out of practice into TC and pre-season games look for The Packers to IR him until next year.
Rookies can't afford to miss practice.

I'm more worried about the rookies from last season and the one prior. This rookie class isn't expected to win us games. The previous draft classes are. Hope dude heals quick.

If Vince Biegel's foot and hand recover such that he is able to compete for the roster, any success will benefit the Packers. However , if he can't pass the physical to practice with the team by training camp, he'll be behind the others. Re-breaking and pinning a bone injury is serious at best, I wish him well.
