Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah recently underwent a surgical procedure for his hip to clean up bone spurs, according to league sources.

Zuttah dealt with the hip injury throughout the season, with the bone spurs affecting the hip joint when he got into his blocking stance.

He is expected to be able to take part in offseason practices and minicamps, but he will likely be eased back into workouts as he rehabilitates.

Zuttah missed just one offensive snap last season as the Ravens finished 12th in total offense, eighth in scoring offense and eighth in rushing offense. The Ravens allowed just 19 sacks after giving up 48 sacks the previous season.

Zuttah allowed one sack and 23 quarterback pressures. He gradied out solidly as a run blocker but not nearly as high for his pass blocking.

The Ravens acquired Zuttah from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year in exchange for their 2015 fifth-round draft pick. The team then signed Zuttah to a five-year, $18 million contract extension last spring that includes $6.5 million guaranteed.
