This is a quick turnaround.

On Wednesday, Notre Dame starting linebacker Greer Martini announced that he would be good to go against N.C. State on Saturday just a week after undergoing a surgical procedure on a torn meniscus in his knee.

“They repaired it and I’m full go,” Martini said, via DieHards. “I had practices all yesterday. Didn’t take any reps off. And I’m feeling really good.”

It was announced last week that Martini would miss the USC game due to the procedure, but the prognosis was good for him to return this week. While knee surgeries are sometimes seem as a season-ender in the world of sports, this isn’t completely uncommon with some surgical procedures on the meniscus. The NBA’s Metta World Peace once returned just 12 days after a meniscus surgery, which is possible even more bizarre considering that the vertical leaping ability required in basketball can often cause recoveries from knee surgeries to tend towards the longer side of the timetable.

In six games this year, Martini has recorded 39 total tackles (2.0 TFL) and an interception.
