(CNN) – Texas Gov. Rick Perry is slated for an outpatient surgical procedure on Friday, his office announced in a Thursday afternoon statement.
The procedure is to "repair his right clavicle, which did not heal properly after a 2009 bike accident" and will take place in Austin, the statement said.

A few months before announcing his now-defunct presidential bid, Perry underwent back surgery, and some placed blame for his rocky debate performances on his recovery. By September, Perry resumed running, and told reporters on the campaign trail he would log up to 17 miles a week.
"I didn't realize it was going to have as big an impact and frankly I didn't even know it was having the impact it was having on me-from the standpoint of just being fatigued-and it showed up in the first few debates," Perry said in December.
