LSU senior middle linebacker Donnie Alexander had successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder last week.

The surgery "went beautiful," according to his Edna Karr high school coach Norman Randall. Per The Advocate:

You won’t see Alexander next Saturday during LSU’s spring game, as he continues recovery from surgery. Doctors surgically repaired a torn labrum in his right shoulder, an old high school injury that he re-aggravated this past season.

Surgery “went beautifully,” said Norman Randall, Alexander’s position coach at Edna Karr for three years. “He’s on track.”

Surgery for a torn labrum — the cup-shaped rim of cartilage reinforcing the ball-and-socket joint of the shoulder — is a somewhat speedy process. In fact, guard Will Clapp underwent a similar procedure in mid-January. He began practicing, in a limited role, 10 weeks later.
