"AUSTINâ€” Less than two weeks after losing his job as Texas' starting quarterback, junior Garrett Gilbert underwent shoulder surgery Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season.
Gilbert is believed to have suffered the unspecified injury to his right (throwing) shoulder during the Longhorns' season opener against Rice, team trainer Kenny Boyd said in a statement released by UT. Boyd said Gilbert was not affected in practice leading up to the second game, in which Gilbert threw two early interceptions against BYU before being replaced by Case McCoy and David Ash.
"After that, it got progressively worse," Boyd said. "We did an MRI on the shoulder last week, and after our medical staff looked at the results, we recommended that he have surgery ."
...But coach Mack Brown said heâ€™s looking forward to having Gilbert back.
