Several Falcons undergo off-season surgery
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that four Falcons players underwent surgery recently, and will spend the majority of the off-season rehabilitating those injuries. Included were Warrick Dunn, Todd Weiner, Fred McCrary, and Jason Webster.
Dunn underwent shoulder surgery. Weiner had damaged cartilage repaired in his knee, while McCrary underwent a similar procedure. Webster had surgery to repair a hernia, after suffering through a torn groin for much of the second half of the season.
Dunn is expected to restructure his contract at some during the off-season, to make his cap hit more palatable to the franchise. McCrary is an unrestricted free agent. It is unknown if his injury status will affect whether or not the team opts to re-sign him. Weiner, a prospective free agent as well, had his contract extended through 2011 in October.
