Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Burr-Kirven underwent sports hernia surgery six weeks ago, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Burr-Kirven has sat most of the offseason out due to the surgery but has began conditioning work at practice, per Bell. Typically for this type of injury, there's a 4-to-6-week recovery period, so the Washington product is right on schedule. The fifth-round pick in April's draft is expected to stick as a backup and special teams contributor after he made 176 tackles in 14 games for the Huskies last season.
