Buffalo Bills cornerback Levi Wallace recently underwent shoulder surgery, a league source confirmed to The Buffalo News on Tuesday.
The surgery, according to the source, was termed a “minor clean up” and “nothing to be worried about.”
Wallace, 24, is a former undrafted free agent from Alabama who started all 16 games for the Bills in 2019 opposite Tre’Davious White. He finished with 76 tackles and two interceptions in his second professional season. Wallace suffered a shoulder injury in the Bills’ Week 7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but after being limited in practice early in the next week, was ultimately removed from the final injury report before the Bills played Washington in Week 8.
Wallace began to share snaps over the second half of the season with Kevin Johnson, but there was no indication that had anything to do with his shoulder injury. Wallace missed the Bills’ playoff loss against the Texans because of a sprained ankle suffered in Week 17 against the Jets.
Wallace becomes at least the fifth Bills player to undergo surgery this offseason, joining defensive end Jerry Hughes (wrist), right tackle Cody Ford (shoulder), right guard Jon Feliciano (shoulder) and defensive tackle Ed Oliver (core muscle).
