Lawrence Maroney has major shoulder surgery

New England Patriots starting tailback Lawrence Maroney had shoulder surgery this off-season. The announcement was made by Boston Globe reporter Mike Reiss.

It's unclear when Maroney will be ready to go. This could lead the Patriots to pick another tailback relatively high in the 2007 draft.

Remember, last year's #2 tailback, Corey Dillon, is no longer with New England. He was released this off-season. Dillon and Maroney platooned last season.
