Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert underwent surgery to repair the labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, NFL Network reported Sunday.

The surgery took place Wednesday, and he is expected to be recovered in time to take part in the offseason program.

Behind Herbert, the Chargers reached the playoffs for the first time since the 2018 season. They lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 31-30, in the AFC wild-card round on Jan. 14.

Herbert, 24, threw for 4,739 yards in the regular season, second to Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs. He completed 68.2 percent of his passes for 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions despite also playing with a significant rib injury.

The Chargers selected Herbert with the No. 6 overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.

In 49 career games, all starts, the Chargers have a 25-24 record. He has thrown for 14,089 yards with 94 touchdowns and 35 interceptions.
