Missouri F Porter slated to undergo back surgery
Highly touted Missouri prospect Michael Porter Jr. will undergo spinal surgery and is expected to miss the rest of the season. Porter, a freshman forward who is projected to be a high pick in next year's NBA draft, was scheduled to have a microdiscectomy of the L3 and L4 spinal discs performed on Tuesday. The 19-year-old has a projected recovery time of three to four months. The school said he is expected to make a full recovery. "I really appreciate the support of my family and the Mizzou men's basketball program as I begin this process," Porter said in a statement. "I'm thankful for all the kind words and messages I've received from fans. Those mean a lot to me. I cannot wait to be completely healthy and playing the game I love, once again." Porter appeared in only one game for the Tigers this season, totaling two points and two rebounds in the season opener against Iowa State on Nov. 10 before departing after just two minutes. The team said at the time Porter had tweaked his hip. "Our top priority as a program is the well-being of our student-athletes, so Michael beginning this process to be 100 percent healthy is important to all of us," Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin said in a statement. "Our focus has been on Michael's well-being, just like every other player in our locker room. We will continue to work every day to build Mizzou Basketball into a program to be proud of. We're preparing now for a trip that is a tremendous opportunity. I'm excited to get after it in Orlando." Porter originally selected Washington but was granted his release when the school fired coach Lorenzo Romar after last season.

Perry, who has not played yet, will be available, Addazio said. Wide receiver Jeff Smith, who started three games at quarterback in 2015, will also take some practice snaps at quarterback this week.

Wisconsin WR Cephus out for rest of season
Wisconsin wide receiver Quintez Cephus will miss the remainder of the season following surgery on his right leg, coach Paul Chryst announced. Cephus, a sophomore, sustained the injury while blocking on a running play during the third quarter against Indiana on Saturday. "For every player that misses time, you feel bad for them," Chryst said. "And yet, (Cephus) will bounce back. One of the fun things about coaching is seeing these guys play and grow and develop, and football's a vehicle we get to use. He'll bounce back from it." Cephus has a team-high 501 receiving yards and six touchdowns to go along with 30 catches.

Alabama loses LBs Hamilton, Wilson due to injuries
Alabama linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton will miss the rest of the season with a broken right kneecap, but another linebacker, Mack Wilson, might have a chance to return. Both players were injured in a 24-10 victory over LSU. They underwent surgery the next day. Hamilton's season ends early for the second consecutive season. He suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during the 2016 SEC Championship Game. The senior was tied for second on the team in tackles this season with 40, including 5.5 for loss and 2.5 sacks. Wilson, who suffered a foot injury, has 21 tackles and three interceptions. He is expected to be out four to six weeks. That would put him on a potential track to return for the College Football Playoff. The unbeaten Tide was No. 2 in the initial rankings last week. Alabama has been playing without linebackers Christian Miller (torn biceps) and Terrell Lewis (torn elbow ligament) since the season-opener. Saban said on a radio appearance last week that both are "doing extremely well" and left the door open for a return this season -- again, more likely in a playoff scenario. True freshman linebacker Dylan Moses is one of the players who will see increased playing time. He has seven tackles, including 1.5 sacks.

UCLA's Andrews, Taua sustain season-ending injuries
UCLA leading receiver Darren Andrews sustained a torn ACL on a non-contact play in the fourth quarter against Utah, one of two season-ending injuries suffered by the Bruins. Junior defensive lineman Ainuu Taua tore his ACL and MCL, also dislocating a knee cap, on a kick return. Andrews, a senior, ends his season with 60 catches for 773 yards and 10 touchdowns. He had three catches for 66 yards and a score in the 48-17 loss to the Utes. "I think he was one of the most productive receivers in the country," UCLA offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said in a press conference. "He was having a good game again. Unfortunately, that's just the way this game goes." Taua had seven tackles this season for UCLA (4-5, 2-4 Pac-12), which hosts Arizona State on Saturday. Quarterback Josh Rosen missed the Utah game because of a concussion but is likely to play against the Sun Devils.

Purdue QB Blough to undergo surgery for dislocated ankle
Purdue junior quarterback David Blough will undergo surgery Tuesday for a dislocated right ankle. Blough, who has started five games for the Boilermakers (4-5, 2-4 Big Ten), suffered the injury Saturday during a running play in a 29-10 victory over Illinois. "It may have been a small break of the fibula and something with the ligament down there. I don't know the exact terminology," Brohm said at his weekly press conference. "But it is something they can fix. The rehab will take some time but I think he can recover from it." Blough is expected to miss about six months, missing spring ball. He has completed 102 of 157 passes for 1,103 yards, with nine touchdowns and four interceptions. Sophomore Elijah Sindelar, who has started the other four games, will be under center when Purdue plays at Northwestern on Saturday. Brohm said the backup will be Jared Sparks, who has started the past three games at wide receiver and will continue to work there in practice. He has seven receptions for 82 yards.
