PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State quarterback Matt Kegel underwent an MRI examination of his injured shoulder on Tuesday, but results won't be known for several days, sports information director Rod Commons said.

Kegel, a Havre, Mont., native and fifth-year senior for the No. 15 Cougars, injured the shoulder of his right throwing arm several times this season and has been held out of Holiday Bowl practices.

Coach Bill Doba said the tests were needed to see if a "clicking" felt in the shoulder indicates cartilage damage.

Commons said the test results would be read Thursday or later.

Freshman Josh Swogger is Kegel's backup.

Washington State (9-3, 6-2 Pac-10) meets No. 5 Texas (10-2, 7-1 Big 12) in the Dec. 30 Holiday Bowl in San Diego.
