Female athletes seeking an end to career-ending injury

Doctors say too much playing time and a lack of preventative measures during training increase the odds that girls will continue to endure these potentially career-ending injuries.

Texans team physician will operate on Walker

Green Bay - Green Bay Packers wide receiver Javon Walker has chosen Houston Texans team physician Walter Lowe to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will undergo surgery Friday in Houston.  Walker said he decided to go with Lowe because he was part of a medical group that had operated on his right shoulder after the 2003 season.

Astros first baseman Jeff Bagwell said Sunday he will undergo an operation next month described as a “last-chance option” to repair his injured right shoulder and salvage his baseball career. If the procedure succeeds, Bagwell hopes to play the last month of this season and return for 2006, the final year of his contract.  “I have to do it,” Bagwell said at a news conference before Sunday’s AstrosGiants game at Minute Maid Park. “It’s the only way I can continue to play this game.  “I want to play. I want to help the Houston Astros. It kills me that I …
