Gophers linebacker Cody Poock will have shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season, coach Tracy Claeys said Tuesday.
Poock re-injured his right shoulder in last week's win over Purdue. The Gophers list Nick Rallis as their starting middle linebacker for the Nebraska game, but he'll have to miss the first half after getting ejected for targeting against Purdue.
Thomas Barber is listed as the backup at middle linebacker, and he'll see an increased role without Poock or Rallis in the first half.
It looks like there's a possibility offensive lineman Garrison Wright (shoulder) can play. On the team's weekly depth chart and injury report, the Gophers list the starter at right guard as Wright "or" Vincent Calhoun.
