WVU senior quarterback Clint Trickett underwent successful shoulder surgery on Monday and is expected to be sidelined between two and three months during his recovery, a source told TheDPost.com.
According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because WVU does not discuss injuries, renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews performed the operation at the Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Fla., repairing damage to Trickett's AC joint, labrum and rotator cuff.
It was known going into the procedure that Trickett had suffered a Grade 2 sprain of his AC joint and a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder during his first start of the season against Oklahoma State, on Sept. 28. The rotator cuff damage was not discovered until Andrews began the operation but, the source said, the broader scope of the surgery is not expected to affect Trickett's recovery time.
WVU Director of Football Communications Mike Montoro said the university had no updates on Trickett's status on Tuesday. Messages left for Trickett were not returned.
