Panthers owner and founder Jerry Richardson underwent successful shoulder surgery Thursday in Charlotte, according to a team official.

Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said team doctor Pat Connor performed the surgery, adding “everything went well.”

This is the second time in seven weeks Richardson has had surgery to repair his rotator cuff. Richardson, 79, reinjured his shoulder recently while rehabbing from the initial surgery.
