The Lions announced today that Yasuyuki Kataoka will undergo surgery for an injury to his right TFCC on Wednesday. Kataoka was originally diagnosed with a sprain, but when the injury did not improve, he was re-evaluated.
Shota Takekuma will also undergo surgery on the same day for an ulnar nerve dislocation in his left elbow.
There is no recovery timetable on either player.
