Tyler Russell out of Liberty Bowl

Posted: Updated:

Mississippi State quarterback Tyler Russell will miss the Liberty Bowl later this month, after having surgery to fix a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.
  The procedure ends Russell's career at Mississippi State.
  As a junior, Russell set the single-season school record with nearly 29-hundred passing yards and 24 touchdowns, but missed much of his senior season with various injuries.
  The Dawgs will go into the December 31st bowl against Rice with 2 quarterback options, sophomore Dak Prescott, who's been battling a nerve injury in his non-throwing arm, and freshman Damian Williams.
