Football: Ex-Dwyer DE Malik Brown undergoes successful wrist surgery 

By Jeff Greer

Ex-Dwyer defensive end Malik Brown successfully underwent wrist surgery Tuesday.

The Tennessee signee needed the operation to repair a scaphoid fracture, which Brown told the Post he played with for two years after injuring the small bone in an October 2011 practice. Brown (6-3, 251, No. 8 on the Big Board) said Thursday he’d rehab the wrist for “just a few weeks” after the multiple-hour surgery.

Brown will enroll at Tennessee this summer after graduating from Dwyer, where he had 46 tackles – 14 for loss – and 17 sacks his senior season. The scaphoid bone is at the base of the hand, and is one of the most commonly fractured bones in the hand.
