Titans undrafted rookie James Gayle had shoulder surgery

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The same shoulder that gave James Gayle problems at Virginia Tech is giving him problems with the Titans.

Jim Wyatt is reporting that James Gayle underwent shoulder surgery earlier this week.  Gayle got one of the highest signing bonus of any undrafted free agent in the NFL.  Unfortunately, it will be a while before the Titans are able to find out if that was a wise investment.

According to Wyatt, Titans' coach Ken Whisenhunt said today that the best case scenario for Gayle is the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.  That would allow him to miss some time but still come back and play this season.

The worst case scenario for Gayle is that he ends up on IR and misses the entire season.  They won't know which option it will be for a few weeks.
