Shyra had her injury a little over a year ago. She had her surgery, rehabilitated and played overseas in January for a couple of months and did well there. She came back here all ready to go-no problems, no setbacks. We haven’t had any issues with her; she’s been able to participate in full camp with no problems. We’ll monitor her swelling, monitor anything that goes on structurally, making sure soft tissue-wise there is no stress risers throughout the camp, or season. Long-term - same thing - monitor swelling, pliability of the tendon, making sure that she doesn’t get any contractures. She’s been great so far.

From an interview with Craig Stull, St. Vincent Sports Performance-Athletic Trainer for the Indiana Fever about Shyra Ely's recovery from knee surgery. For more on Ely's recovery in her own words, visit her Yardbarker blog where she gave an "honest interpretation of my feelings and thoughts."
