With 2017 in the rearview mirror, members of the Green Bay Packers can begin to rest and prepare for next season. That includes cornerback Damarious Randall, who will undergo minor surgery on Monday to repair a hand injury he dealt with throughout this past year, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Michael Cohen.

Randall has an issue with one of the bones in his hand, though it remains unclear how it affected his play. Randall played in 14 games this season, missing the final two weeks with a knee injury. The Packers also listed Randall with a hamstring injury earlier in the year.

ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reports that Randall needs six to eight weeks to recover from the surgery. That would leave the third-year cornerback ample time to recover before organized team activities begin later in the offseason.

A first-round pick in 2015, Randall endured an up-and-down 2017 campaign. The Packers benched him during a Week 4 victory over the Chicago Bears, leading to an incident on the sideline. However, Randall played well after the benching and finished the season with a career-high four interceptions.
