INDIANAPOLIS - Sebastian Vollmer, who's due to become a free agent March 12, had knee surgery on Wednesday according to a source.

Vollmer, who dealt with a balky back all season but played well at right tackle, is an interesting prospect on the open market. His injury history - especially his back troubles - makes him a player teams could be leery of. But his performance since entering the league as a surprise second-round pick in 2009 has been outstanding.

News of Vollmer's surgery was first reported by Karen Guregian of The Boston Herald.
