"It's attached. I'm alright," Mayfield said in postgame press conference while addressing the injury last year. "It's my left shoulder. I throw with my right."

Mayfield ultimately chose not to play in the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Jake Trotter of ESPN is reporting that Dr. Orr Limpisvasti is performing the surgery. Dr. Limpisvasti is currently listed on NHL.com as being in his seventh season as orthopedic surgeon for the Anaheim Ducks.

“He continues to actively publish research in the field of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine,” according to the NHL. “His research and clinical interests include shoulder, elbow, and knee injuries.”
