Van Noy had his tonsils removed on Friday. His emergency surgery took place on Saturday.

He has stayed in the hospital for the past ten days and was recently cleared to go back home with his family.

“This last week has been long and emotional,” Kyle Van Noy wrote. “Trae has been extremely brave & strong and after a long 10 days in the hospital and a lot of scary moments trying to get his body to respond to the antibiotics, we finally get to bring him home.”

Van Noy has played for four teams in his NFL career. New England, Detroit, Miami, and Los Angeles have all been home to the Nevada native.
