  • Virginia DE done for season

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Virginia senior defensive end Chris Canty will undergo knee surgery and miss the remainder of the season.

    "Chris is one of the guys who has built the heart of the team," coach Al Groh said Monday. "He has a great passion for football and his teammates. That will be missed even more than his playmaking ability."

    The 6-foot-7, 290-pound Canty was injured late in 12th-ranked Virginia's 31-10 victory over Syracuse on Saturday. The exact nature of the injury was not disclosed.

    The three-year letterman is one of four team captains. He was a second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection each of the past two years. He led ACC defensive linemen with 86 tackles in 2002 and 104 tackles in 2003.

    Canty will be replaced in the starting lineup by Kwakou Robinson, a 6-4, 327-pound junior. As a freshman, Robinson started the first five games while Canty recovered from an injury.

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska tight end Matt Herian will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his broken left leg.

    Herian, the Cornhuskers' leading receiver, was injured in the second quarter of Saturday's 24-3 victory over Missouri. He had surgery Saturday night to insert a rod in his leg.

    The junior has 24 catches for 308 yards.

    Senior Dusty Keiser and redshirt freshman J.B. Phillips are now the Cornhuskers' top two tight ends.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee left tackle Michael Munoz had surgery Friday on his right shoulder to repair a torn rotator cuff muscle.

    Munoz had not been expected to play in Saturday's SEC championship game against No. 3 Auburn in Atlanta because of his sore shoulder, which he hurt on Nov. 20 in a victory against Vanderbilt.

    "Michael and his family are hopeful for a return late in the spring to pursue his NFL career," Vols head trainer Keith Clements said.

    Munoz is the son of Hall of Fame lineman Anthony Munoz. The two-time captain finished his Tennessee career starting all 46 games he played.

    PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State quarterback Josh Swogger broke a bone in his right foot, ending his sophomore season.

    The injury will require surgery, Washington State athletic department spokesman Rod Commons said Monday.

    Swogger's backup is freshman Alex Brink, who played in two games this season, completing 13-of-25 pass attempts for 278 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

    Freshman Gary Rogers, who hoped to redshirt this season, will be Brink's backup.

    Swogger already was playing with a partially torn ligament in his right knee and a sore ankle.

    He completed 91 of 193 pass attempts for 1,283 yards, with 13 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. He ranks seventh in the Pac-10 in passing, averaging 208.7 yards per game.

    The Bryant award is given by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

    The other finalists were Southern California's Pete Carroll, Boise State's Dan Hawkins, Utah's Urban Meyer, Louisville's Bobby Petrino and UTEP's Mike Price.

    "The selection is based on all of the hard work the Auburn staff and players put in this season. This is a team award, not an individual award," Tuberville said Thursday night.

    Last month, Tuberville was voted the Associated Press coach of the year.

    Auburn finished the season ranked No. 2 in the nation after beating Virginia Tech 16-13 in the Sugar Bowl.

    Tuberville has a 51-24 overall record in his six seasons with Auburn and is 31-17 in Southeastern Conference play.

    Mississippi State QB Conner out three weeks with knee injury

    SportsLine.com wire reports

    JACKSON, Miss. -- Mississippi State quarterback Omarr Conner will miss at least three weeks after spraining a ligament in his right knee in a 51-0 loss to LSU on Saturday.

    Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom said Monday that tests showed Conner sprained his medial collateral ligament and won't return before the Bulldogs' home game against No. 16 Florida on Oct. 23.

    "That's the earliest we can get him back," Croom said.

    With Conner out, junior Kyle York will start Saturday against Vanderbilt. Because York's shoulder is not 100 percent after offseason surgery, freshman Mike Henig will also play.

    Conner, who played receiver last season for the Bulldogs (1-3, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) is 50-of-89 for 509 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions this season. York is 13-of-27 for 132 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in three appearances.
