Beason has shoulder surgery

Panthers All-Pro linebacker Jon Beason had shoulder surgery earlier this month, he writes in his blog.

Beason said he tore his labrum in a regular-season victory against the Arizona Cardinals in October. He hurt it two plays before he made a key second-half interception of Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner. Beason said he played with the injury the rest of the season.

Beason said he'll be in a sling for 4-6 weeks and will be ready for training camp. He's not sure if he'll be ready for OTA's in the spring, although he said he needs to be working with the Panthers' new defensive coaches. -- David Scott

Hip Surgery is certainly not new or uncommon. But really hope that having having done that, you are feeling much better and is able to practice.
