New York Giants center Shaun O'Hara underwent surgery on Thursday to repair the Lisfranc joint injury he had in his foot, the team announced.

According to the New York Daily News, O'Hara had a screw placed in his injured foot. He is expected to undergo a second surgery to repair his left ankle and Achilles later.

O'Hara missed 10 games last season due to injuries in both feet. He has a bone chip that was hurting his Achilles tendon in his left ankle and then he suffered the Lisfranc injury in his other foot.

O'Hara will not participate in the Pro Bowl because of his surgeries, but the Giants aren't short on representation.

Long snapper Zak DeOssie was selected by Falcons coach Mike Smith for the NFC Pro Bowl squad on Thursday.

He joins guard Chris Snee, defensive end Justin Tuck and safety Antrel Rolle. Snee is a starter while Tuck and Rolle are reserves.
