A while after a practice day where the Green Bay Packers' newest linebacker from Wisconsin was injured, reports are coming that he has had surgery.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports that, per sources who talked to him and his colleague Adam Schefter, that Vince Biegel had foot surgery last week.
Sources tell Demovsky that there is no guarantee he will make it for training camp in July. However, Green Bay Press-Gazette beat writer Ryan Wood reports his source says Biegel will be ready to go by the time camp rolls around:
Can confirm #Packers 4th-round rookie OLB Vince Biegel had foot surgery, as ESPN reported. Expected to b back for training camp, per source.

The Packers drafted Biegel with a fourth-round pick they acquired from Cleveland as part of a trade in which they gave up a first round pick when linebacker T.J. Watt, a fellow Badger, was available.
The Packers also picked up Kevin King, a cornerback from Washington, with the second round pick that came in the trade.
