Record-setting freshman Jared Goff underwent surgery on Wednesday to fix his injured right shoulder. Goff sustained the injury after a big hit from Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov during Cal’s 63-13 loss to the Stanford Cardinal. Reports indicate that the surgery was a success, and the talented quarterback is expected to be able to fully participate in spring practices.

Cal coach Sonny Dykes released the following statement about the situation:

We are pleased that Jared is expected to make a full recovery and be back on the field for spring ball. We have confidence he can build on the promising campaign he had in his first season at Cal (San Jose Mercury News).

Although the 1-11 season Cal had was certainly a disappointment, Goff set multiple school records. His 504 passing yards against Washington State were the most in school history, and he set single-season marks for passing yards (3,508) and passes completed (320). He also threw 18 touchdown passes.

We wish Goff the best in his recovery.
