Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House will undergo shoulder today, according to a post from his wife this morning on Twitter.

House was in line to win a starting spot at cornerback before suffering a left shoulder subluxation in the teamís preseason opener against San Diego on Aug. 9.

He didnít play again until Oct. 21 when he returned with a harness protecting the shoulder against St. Louis after starting cornerback Sam Shields went down with a high-ankle sprain.

The 6-foot-1 House finished the year with the brace and played in the next nine games with five starts, tallying 26 tackles and a sack before re-injuring the shoulder on special teams against Tennessee on Dec. 23.

After a brief absence, House returned to practice in the weeks that followed and said he felt well enough to play, but remained inactive the rest of the season.

During the assistant coachesí final availability last week, cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt said he expects House to factor into the competition for starting cornerback spots next season.

Throughout the course of the year, Whitt championed the 2011 fourth-round pickís improvement after injuries limited him to only two games during his rookie season.

House hoped to avoid surgery when the injury first occurred last August, but cautioned if the shoulder popped out again it would be ďa must.Ē Regardless, the fact the team was as cautious with the shoulder throughout the season is a likely indicator as to its level of concern.

UPDATE: House acknowledged his surgery in a tweet Wednesday evening: "Thanks for all the prayers. Surgery went well."
