The procedure was an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, according to an Aug. 8 news release from NBC Sports. 

Mr. Hines suffered the ACL tear during a jet skiing accident over the offseason. 

The injury will cause Mr. Hines to miss the entirety of the upcoming NFL season, the report said.
