Rotoworld-- Dolphins coach Tony Sparano revealed Wednesday that Brandon Marshall is recovering from a "routine," undisclosed surgery and may not practice until training camp.
It's not an offseason without some Baby T.O. drama. We'll wait to hear the body part operated on before giving a rough estimate as to when Marshall will be back on the field. His absence from spring OTAs isn't a major concern, but couldn't have hurt Marshall's rapport with Chad Henne. Rising second-year wideout Brian Hartline will get his chance to shine with a full slate of reps. May. 19 - 1:15 pm et
According to ESPN's John Clayton, the surgery Brandon Marshall recently underwent is to his hip.
Marshall also underwent hip surgery last offseason. The Dolphins are characterizing the latest procedure as "routine," indicating that it was arthroscopic in nature and designed to correct dead cartilage in the hip. However, two hip surgeries in as many years remains cause for concern, and coach Tony Sparano wouldn't commit Wednesday to Marshall returning for the start of training camp. Marshall has been quick to recover from injuries in the past, but he'll need to be monitored closely all summer. May. 19 - 2:07 pm et
