Titans safety Michael Griffin kicked off the offseason by having surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, an operation that left him unable to use crutches.

As a result, Griffin had to delay getting some work done on his knee until the shoulder was well enough for him to have a procedure on his knee. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that Griffin’s shoulder has healed up enough for doctors to fix Griffin up for the second time this offseason.

The labrum surgery already had Griffin on an extended rehab timeline that coach Ken Whisenhunt said last week could leave Griffin without clearance until training camp.

Griffin has a cap number of just over $8 million for the 2015 season and the Titans would get a little more than half of that back if they were to move in a different direction in the secondary. With Bernard Pollard coming off a torn Achilles and reportedly looking for an exit from the organization, such a move might leave the Titans with more headaches than they need at safety.
