News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Feb. 8, 2018: Caribbean-born NFL star, Patrick Chung, was forced out of the Super Bowl early because of a broken arm but he also has an injured shoulder that now needs repair too.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports that Chung was scheduled to have surgery yesterday. However, that is only the start of his treatment.

Howe reports Chung is set to have shoulder surgery in about three weeks to repair an injury Chung played through this season.

The shoulder surgery is expected to have a longer recovery time and Chung is likely to miss OTAs as a result. But the Jamaican star should be ready to go for training camp this summer.

Chung had 84 tackles, an interception and a half-sack in 15 regular season appearances for the Patriots. He’s signed through 2020.
