An impending free agent, Mincey has now undergone similar procedures in back-to-back offseasons.
Mincey led the Cowboys in sacks in 2014, but failed to record a single sack in 2015. It's difficult to gauge how he will be valued on the open market.
"I just hate it ended this way," Mincey said of the possibility he won't be back with the Cowboys next season. "Who knows what the future brings. I'm just optimistic about the future. I plan on going on a real thorough training this offseason, getting my elbow fixed and take my game to heights I know it can go."
