MANKATO, Minn. -- Linebacker Dom DeCicco will have surgery on his hip Thursday, head coach Mike Zimmer said.
DeCicco's return timetable is not certain, according to Zimmer.
"I don't know, we'll have to see after the procedure," Zimmer said.
It was a long shot for the third-year linebacker to make the team before he apparently suffered an injury that has kept him out of practice since Friday's preseason game. It is not immediately clear what the injury is.
The first round of roster cuts will trim the roster from 90 players to 75 players after the team's third preseason game, August 23.
