Playing hurt throughout the 2014 season, Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah underwent an arthroscopic hip surgical procedure to clean up some bone spurs, according to a report from The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

That sounds fairly painful, considering Wilson also notes that Zuttah felt the pain each time he got into his blocking stance. This means that Zuttah was able to be fairly effective in most games while playing far less than 100 percent. It's expected that Zuttah will be able to participate during Baltimore's offseason programs, such as minicamp and OTAs.

Zutah appeared and started in every game in the regular season and postseason. He was a huge addition to an offensive line that struggled mightily in 2013. In 2014, the offensive line only gave up 19 total sacks, good for second-best in the NFL, and ran for 126.2 yards per game, which ranked eighth.
