UConn QB having shoulder surgery
Connecticut quarterback Cody Endres was scheduled to have season-ending surgery on his non-throwing shoulder Sunday morning, coach Randy Edsall said after UConn's 28-24 loss to Rutgers on Saturday.
Endres was hurt early in the game when Rutgers tackle Blair Bines drove him into the turf.
The injury is similar to Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford's sprained AC joint.
Endres had completed 63.6 percent of his passes for 1,354 yards and six touchdowns with four interceptions after taking over the job late in Week 2 against North Carolina.
Zach Frazer, who began the year as the starter before hurting his knee in the North Carolina game, replaced Endres against Rutgers and threw a touchdown and three interceptions.
Edsall also said that running back Robbie Frey, who had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Rutgers, will miss the rest of the year with a torn left labrum.
