WitP: Pisa has knee surgery, Manuwai, Satele

Pisa Tinoisamoa had to have arthroscopic surgery on his knee today.
Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa underwent what coach Lovie Smith described as a "minor scope" on his sore right knee. How long he will be sidelined remains to be seen, which could be a concern since backup linebacker Nick Roach also left Sunday's 24-20 win over the Lions with a hip injury and did not return.

"He needed a scope," Bears coach Lovie Smith said when asked if Tinoisamoa underwent the procedure so he would have time to recover before the playoffs. "No more than that. If a player needs to get something fixed, that's all we take into consideration. He needed it done right now. He had been trying to play through the pain."
Vic Ketchman of Jaguars.com writes about Vince Manuwai's return to form.
I was sitting next to Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News in the postgame press conference and he asked me if Vince Manuwai is playing as well as it appeared. I said he is. Manuwai turned in another dominant run-blocking performance. Just as he was in the 2007 late-season rush, Manuwai is the engine that’s driving the Jaguars’ run-game.
According to Silver & Black Pride, Samson Satele had a good game against the Chargers.
Satele also played his best game of the season. Many of the Raiders runs were right up the middle. Satele was getting a good enough push that the Raiders guards were free to move onto block LBs.
