Carolina Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers had surgery on his right shoulder on Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue and Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer report.

He first posted photos post-operation on his Instagram story on Thursday afternoon, with the caption “thanks everyone for the calls, texts and visits. Everything went smooth and I’m recovering well.”

Peppers also posted a photo of one of his guests, Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis.

Carolina’s team website confirmed the surgery Thursday afternoon, but a team spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

A source said that Peppers’ surgery was a labrum repair.

Peppers, 37, returned to Charlotte in 2017 on a one-year deal and tied for the team lead in sacks with 11. Carolina coaches have stated their hope that Peppers, a future first-ballot hall of famer, will return for another year.
