Los Angeles Chargers star quarterback Justin Herbert underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, the team announced Sunday.
Herbert, 24, is expected to be fully released to participate in off-season activities this spring.
It is unclear when Herbert suffered the injury. The Chargers were eliminated from the playoffs two weeks ago when the Jacksonville Jaguars made the third-biggest comeback in NFL playoff history in the wildcard round.
Herbert played several weeks this season with a fractured rib cartilage he sustained in Week 2, but still threw for 4,739 yards and 25 touchdowns as the Chargers secured their first playoff spot since 2018.
Hebert was selected as a proxy for the AFC at the 2023 NFL Pro Bowl Games but is unable to attend due to surgery.
