NASCAR star Tony Stewart had surgery on his right leg after sustaining a broken tibia and fibula in a sprint car crash back on Aug. 6. He is projected to return sometime in February.

Updates from Monday, Jan. 27

Bob Pockrass of the Sporting News has the latest on Tony Stewart after being cleared to race:

“I’m cleared to start the day before the Shootout (Unlimited),” Stewart said Monday during the first day of the annual Sprint Media Tour. "With the bone being healed only 65 percent (by then), he’s not wanting me to risk getting in a car any earlier than I have to compete.

“As much as I would like to be in a car testing, and it would be great for us as a team to test, we need to let that leg have as much time to heal (as possible) before we actually have to get in the car. We’re not anticipating any problems, but it’s just eliminating opportunities for something to aggravate it or re-injure it.”
