The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Saints offensive tackle Terron Armstead will undergo surgery Monday to repair a torn labrum and the timetable for his return is 4-6 months.
Armstead seemed to confirm the report with a Tweet: 'Heartbroken whenn I found out I need surgery! No one is more frustrated than me after working so hard. I'll be back #WhoDatNation STRONGER!!

It is the latest in the string of physical setbacks for the team, which is still awaiting news on the future of defensive lineman Nick Fairley, who has been diagnosed with a heart condition.
The team previously lost center Max Unger for an undisclosed amount of time with an old foot injury that required surgery.
At Thursday's mini-camp press conference, head coach Sean Payton would not discuss Armstead's status, telling the media he would talk about injuries in September.
