Patriots safety Devin McCourty has undergone shoulder surgery since Super Bowl LII, though it was only a clean-up procedure, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

McCourty also underwent minor shoulder surgery in 2013. He separated a shoulder in 2011.

He was added to the injury report in Week 17 with a shoulder injury. But McCourty missed only 35 of 275 defensive snaps in the Patriots’ final four games, including playing all 74 plays in the AFC Championship Game and all 75 plays in the Super Bowl.

McCourty has missed only five games in his eight-year career. He played all 16 games in 2017, making 94 tackles, one interception and five pass breakups.

    Is this going to be added to the myriad of excuses as to why they were favored by 5 and got beat by 8?

    No but Pats greatness explains why you would create a SN to troll them. Pats are too great for you and have been for the last 20 years. Glad to know they own Real Estate in YOUR head.

  2. Above comment is absolutely ridiculous. No excuses the Eagles executed a great game plan and deserved the title.

    I have not heard any Patriots making any excuses. BTW, I look forward to chat with you again next year when the Patriots are back in the playoffs as usual, and the Eagles have retreated back into mediocrity, as usual.

    No excuses from this Pat’s fan. A backup QB outplayed the GOAT SYSTEM QB and won fair and square. We hope to see the Eagles again in the SB next year.

  8. When you read any article about the Patriots-Seahawks Super Bowl or when someone points out that Brady rallied the offense from 10 points down in the 4th quarter against #1 ranked Seattle defense, there are always people who will make excuses for the Seahawks. They’ll say that three members of the secondary had injuries and needed surgery after the season. This ignores that all of those players participated in practice leading up to the game, were listed as Probable on the injury report and didn’t appear hampered in any way during the game. People will still claim that the Seattle D was “so banged up,” though.

    Put another way, you aren’t going to hear anyone saying that McCourty’s injury was why the Patriots lost, especially 3 years later.

  9. I’m surprised he wasn’t admitted to the burn unit for the way Foles torched him all night.
