Browns tight end Steve Heiden expects to be cleared for full activity by the end of May after undergoing minor surgery on his back, Heiden's agent Jack Wirth said Friday.
Wirth said Heiden would need three weeks to recuperate. Cleveland's veteran minicamp is scheduled for June 10-12.
''It was very minor, a simple procedure,'' Wirth said. ''They didn't even know if they were going to do it, they were just going to treat it with cortisone. He said, 'Why don't we clean this up so I don't have to keep taking shots?'''
