STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State quarterback Tyler Russell will miss the Liberty Bowl after having surgery to fix a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.
A Mississippi State spokesman confirmed Russell had surgery on Tuesday. The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews.
The surgery ends Russell's career at Mississippi State. He had an injury-filled senior season, but was effective when he played, completing 65.1 percent of his passes for 875 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.
As a junior, Russell set the single-season school record with 2,897 passing yards and 24 touchdowns.
Mississippi State will go into the Dec. 31 Liberty Bowl against Rice with two options at quarterback - sophomore Dak Prescott and freshman Damian Williams. Prescott has been battling a nerve injury in his non-throwing arm.
