KASITATI SPEAKS TO MEDIA
Nila Kasitati spoke with the media for the first time since it was announced that he would be out of practice after undergoing heart surgery.
He said the surgery was to correct an arrhythmia. The backup center doesn't know when it first happened, but he remembers having the symptoms, “shortness of breath” and “a heavy chest” since he was in middle school.
Kasitati is back practicing and says he needs just a couple more practices to feel back to where he was physically before the surgery.
