Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty had minor surgery on his right shoulder and is expected to be ready for training camp.

McCourty’s surgery was confirmed by the Globe’s Shalise Manza Young after being reported by ESPN.

The three-year veteran played all 16 games for the Patriots, splitting the season between cornerback and free safety. He finished with 82 tackles, five interceptions and 13 passes defensed in 2012. The Patriots intend to keep McCourty at safety going forward.
