Per Robinson, the surgery was a success and DeCastro is not expected to miss time in the team's offseason program. DeCastro is heading into the final year of a five-year, $50 million contract he signed with the team and has started all but three games at right guard in the past six seasons.
DeCastro (undisclosed) started at right guard in Sunday's preseason game against the Titans.
