Redskins coach Joe Gibbs underwent an operation several weeks ago to unclog an artery to his heart.
Gibbs, a 64-year-old diabetic, said the procedure "has no effect on my work, or my tenure with the Redskins."
He said Wednesday he had the precautionary procedure in mid-April at a Washington hospital on the advice of doctors. A small tube, known as a stent,
was placed in the artery. Gibbs said he has never had a problem with his heart, and the blockage was discovered during a routine physical.
"I suffered no ill effects prior to the procedure, and have had none since," he said.
Good to hear Ol Joe is doing fine. He seems like a pretty busy man between his return to football and his NASCAR ties.
