    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.

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

    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.

    Peterson, who rushed for 1,925 yards to set an NCAA freshman record last season, had outpatient reconstructive surgery on his left shoulder Monday and started rehabilitation on Tuesday, Oklahoma spokesman Kenny Mossman said.

    Peterson dislocated the shoulder during the Sooners' fall practice last season and reaggravated the injury in a game against Texas A&M on Nov. 6.

    Cornerback Marcus Walker, another freshman, had similar reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder and is also expected to return in time for fall practice, Mossman said.

    Walker, who made his fourth start during the Orange Bowl, hurt his shoulder during in the Big 12 title game on Dec. 4.

    Both players will miss spring practice, which begins in March, Mossman said. Both had previous shoulder problems in high school, he said.

    Miami loses offensive tackle Winston for rest of season

    SportsLine.com wire reports

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami tackle Eric Winston is out for the season after injuring his left knee during the Hurricanes' 27-3 victory at Georgia Tech on Saturday.

    Miami coach Larry Coker wouldn't give specifics of the injury Sunday, but preliminary indications were that Winston might have serious ligament damage.

    "He's maybe our best offensive player, definitely our best offensive lineman," center Joel Rodriguez said. "For him to go down, it's a blow to our offense."

    More tests to determine the severity of the injury were scheduled, and the 6-foot-7, 310-pound Winston is expected to undergo surgery sometime in the next few days.

    "Usually, two to three bad things happen every year," Coker said. "And you don't like to think in those terms, but they do. It's not what happens that's important, but how you react to it."

    Rashad Butler, who started four games in 2003 and was projected as a starter this year before injuring his left ankle during training camp, will likely take Winston's spot in the lineup for the fourth-ranked Hurricanes (4-0, 2-0 ACC). It's unclear if Butler will play left tackle; more positional juggling among the linemen may occur, Coker said.

    "We have more depth on the offensive line than we've had since I've been here," Coker said. "That's the positive part of it."

    The Hurricanes also have a bit of time to figure out what to do; they're off until Oct. 14, when they'll host Louisville (4-0).

    "He's a great football player," Coker said. "And you don't lose a great football player without missing him."

    Winston was injured with 10:42 remaining against Georgia Tech, when he fell over Georgia Tech linebacker Chris Reis and Miami quarterback Kyle Wright.

    Two injured Miami linemen could be lost for season

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami defensive tackle Santonio Thomas and right guard Tyler McMeans both might miss the remainder of the season because of knee injuries.

    Each was hurt in Miami's 45-31 victory at North Carolina State on Saturday night.

    The extent of either injury wasn't clear; more tests were scheduled on both players, but coach Larry Coker hardly sounded optimistic about the prognosis on Sunday.

    "It doesn't look good for the remainder of the season," Coker said.

    McMeans would be the second starting offensive lineman Miami has lost for the season. Left tackle Eric Winston, one of the best offensive linemen in the country, ripped up his knee against Georgia Tech on Oct. 2.

    McMeans was replaced on Saturday night by redshirt freshman Derrick Morse.

    "When you lose two starters, you get thinner in a hurry," Coker said. "I feel good about our offensive line, but we're not where we want to be."

    Thomas, a senior starter, also missed virtually all the 2002 season with a shoulder injury.
