Cornerback Damarious Randall, who led the Green Bay Packers with four interceptions, underwent hand surgery Monday.

Multiple media outlets reported the 2015 first-round pick was undergoing surgery in New York and he confirmed it by tweeting: "Truly amazing how doctors and whoever else help created this medicine. #YouTheRealMVP"

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Randall's surgery was to repair a small bone that had been bothering him throughout the season. His recovery time is estimated to be six to eight weeks.

Randall underwent the surgery despite never being listed on Green Bay's injury report with a hand injury. He was listed as questionable twice with a hamstring injury and missed the final two games of the season with a knee injury.

Randall led all Packers cornerbacks in playing time even though he was benched for the second half of the Week 4 game against the Chicago Bears for an incident on the sideline that stemmed from his frustration about a miscommunication in the secondary resulting in a touchdown.

He returned the following week and recorded an interception in three straight games. Overall, Randall finished with nine passes defended after struggling through an injury-plagued 2016.

After Green Bay fired longtime defensive coordinator Dom Capers, Randall was critical of the team's defense.

In 39 games (30 starts), Randall has 10 interceptions and 124 tackles. He also has 32 passes defended and two interception returns for touchdowns.
