Bird has successful knee surgery

The surgery was performed by Dr. Michael Joyce in Hartford, Conn. Recovery time is estimated at six months. Bird has already announced that she would miss the 2013 season following her surgery.

Bird will remain in Connecticut through May and will begin rehabilitating her knee immediately.
