Reports: Minnesota Vikings’ starting safeties had surgery

The Minnesota Vikings’ starting safeties each had surgery this offseason, according to reports.

The Minnesota Vikings’ starting safeties, Harrison Smith and Andrew Sendejo, had surgery this offseason to repair damage from injuries, but both of them are expected to be ready for training camp.

Smith, whose surgery was first reported by ESPN, suffered a high ankle sprain against the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 1 but only missed one snap in that game. However, he was inactive for the next two games before returning for the final two games of the season. He held off on ankle surgery until after the Pro Bowl.

Sendejo had knee surgery this offseason, the Star Tribune reported on Wednesday, but, like Smith and running back Latavius Murray, who had ankle surgery last week, is expected to be ready by the start of the season.
