Of the 30 athletes enrolled in this study, 27 (90%) were able to return to their sport for either part or all of their seasons. Three athletes, 2 basketball and 1 ice hockey player, were unable to return to their sport at all. One athlete returned to his sport but was unable to complete his season secondary to recurrent instability episodes (Table 1). Two patients missed 0 days of participation, having returned to play immediately following
Of the 27 athletes who returned to their sport for either part or all of the remain season, 10 (37%) suffered at least one sport-related recurrent episode of instability, 1 patient (4%) experienced 2 episodes of instability not related to his seasonal sport, and the remaining 16 patients (59%) experienced no recurring episodes of instability. Eight of the 27 athletes (30%) had experienced an episode of anterior instability before enrollment in this study.
From 'Nonoperative Management for In-Season Athletes With Anterior Shoulder Instability'.

That's if Murray doesn't have surgery. But it seems sugery is better option, long-term, a least if it's anterior shoulder dislocation.

The Treatment of Traumatic Anterior Instability of the Shoulder:
Nonoperative and Surgical Treatment

Surgical treatment was associated with a significantly lower rate of recurrent instability at 2 years of follow-up (7% v 46%) and at longer-term follow-up (10% v 58%) for first-time traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation, all in younger patients
