I've been doing some reading on torn labrums and depending on the severity of the injury its possible to rehab the injury without surgery. The article I read says it takes 4-6 weeks to rehab. Obviously we don't know the details or the extent of the injury, but if he could play for several months with it, I doubt it was too severe. If a 4-6 week rehab was an available option, even if he had to have surgery to fix it in the off season it would probably have been a better option than him trying to play through it.

If you have an injury that is not too severe, you may be able to avoid surgery. Even so, a labrum injury will require rehab to restore full strength and flexibility to the rotor cuff and muscles of the shoulder blade, as well as to keep the top of the humerus in the glenoid. Non-surgical rehab should take from four to six weeks.
