Luke Del Rio will undergo his second shoulder surgery of the offseason on Wednesday, according to Jim McElwain.

“He’ll be fine,” McElwain said. “It’s not major, you what I mean. Going in and fixing the other one that’s broken.”

Del Rio had shoulder surgery on his left, non-throwing shoulder on January 18th. That surgery kept Del Rio out for spring camp.

Del Rio missed Florida’s last five games in 2016 with multiple shoulder injuries. In fact, McElwain commented that after reviewing tape of the loss at Arkansas that he wished he had pulled Del Rio from that game as he was clearly gutting out an injury.

“You’ve heard me say it before, but this guy played and didn’t bow out,” McElwain said Tuesday. “Here’s the thing good thing, we’re going in and getting him fixed right.”

Del Rio finished the 2016 season with 1,358 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions in six starts.
