Report: Pats S McCourty recovering from shoulder surgery
New England Patriots safety Devin McCourty underwent minor shoulder surgery sometime after the Super Bowl, according to an ESPN report.
Per the report, the surgery was considered a clean-up procedure.
McCourty was limited in practice during Week 17 with a shoulder issue, but he wasn't listed on any injury reports during the postseason. He missed 16 defensive snaps in a divisional-round blowout of the Tennessee Titans before playing all 149 defensive snaps in the AFC Championship Game and Super Bowl LII.
Heading into the final year of a five-year extension, the 30-year-old has missed just five games of a possible 147 (including playoffs) during his nine-year career. McCourty finished the 2017 season with 97 tackles, five passes defensed, one interception and one sack.
