Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan will have surgery on his right hip, but he doesn't expect it to slow him down much.

According to the Honolulu Advertiser, Brennan has a "slight" tear in his hip and will have surgery Monday. The rehabilitation process is between eight and 12 weeks, after which he should be fully healed and not need further medical procedures for this injury.

Brennan told the newspaper he suffered the injury during a Senior Bowl practice in January and said it led to what he called a "dead leg" effect in his right thigh.

Brennan's injury didn't prevent him from working out at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, and he also will compete in passing drills at Hawaii's pro day at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

"You won't notice anything wrong with my passing," said Brennan, who owns the NCAA record for career passing touchdowns.
