What exactly is wrong with PJ Fleck’s face? This question has been circulating online since the Minnesota Gophers football team made a comeback in the spring for the start of training camp. It was not immediately obvious what had changed but something had. He’s also become more regular in his use of eyewear.
The news that Fleck had off-season eye surgery was unknown until Monday night when Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune broke the story. The coach admitted to cosmetic surgery but stressed that it was not for trivial reasons. Fleck told Star Tribune reporter Chip Scoggins that he had plastic surgery to repair his face following a bungee cord accident in 2019.
PJ told Chip that he needed surgery because he hurt himself in 2019 while using a bungee cord to secure something on his Lake Minnetonka house pier. Fleck and his two sons were out on the boat dock at their home in July of 2019. When the bungee cord they were using broke back, it left Fleck with a “pretty serious injury,” he added.
“I was finally able to get it fixed in January,” Fleck said. “I’m still in the healing process for a few more months, but I appreciate everybody’s concern.”
This justification will most doubt spark some debate of its own. Despite the “pretty serious” nature of his injury, Fleck refused to elaborate on the nature of his treatment. He explained that the lengthy two-year delay between the incidence and the procedure was due to the epidemic and the hectic schedule of a football coach.
Nobody paid attention to Fleck’s injured face and eye until after he had surgery on them this past winter. That doesn’t mean his reasoning is illegitimate. This only adds to the mystery of the matter. PJ claims to be “way better” physically after his operation.
