The report did not state which foot Parker had surgery on or when he was injured, but says the surgery was performed as a precaution.

According to the report, Parker will not participate in the team's minicamp but should be ready to play by team’s season opener Sept. 13 against the Washington Redskins.

Parker, a 6'3" 209-pound speedster, was the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft and the third wide receiver selected.

The team will continue the mandatory minicamp with Greg Jennings, who signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the team this off-season, 2012 second-round draft pick Jarvis Landry, and Kenny Stills, who was traded to Miami for linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round draft choice in March.
