Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports the linebacker recently underwent an operation on his right shoulder.
Kuechly skipped the Pro Bowl with an unspecified injury.
The 26-year-old stud did not miss a game due to the shoulder surgery. His lone absence came in Week 7 following a concussion. Kuechly did show up on the injury report late in the season due to the shoulder issue.
Kuechly previously underwent surgery in 2015 for a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
