Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington will undergo groin surgery on Friday, according to his agents at KLASS Sports, for an injury the 27-year old dealt with for much of the season.
Recovery time is expected to be about six weeks.
Arrington first hurt his groin in Week 3 against Tampa Bay. He was removed from the injury report three weeks later in advance of the game against New Orleans, but aggravated the injury in the win over the Saints.
Arrington remained on the injury report for the rest of the regular season, listed as questionable weekly, but never missed a game. Arrington has not missed a game since being promoted from the Patriots' practice squad in November 2009.
