Garrett Gilbert is done for the season

When Garrett Gilbert looks back on his life 50 years from now, it's safe to say that the month of September 2011 will not be one he looks on all that fondly. Not only did Gilbert lose his job as Texas' starting quarterback following a terrible performance against Rice earlier this month, but now it seems that any chance Gilbert had of taking his starting role back is gone.

According to Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman, Gilbert underwent shoulder surgery on Tuesday and he's going to miss the rest of the season.



The injury apparently occurred during the Rice game.

While this isn't good news for Texas, it's not as bad as it could have been. The loss of Gilbert just means that the Longhorns will have to stick with Case McCoy and David Ash for the rest of the season, and that combination wasn't too bad against UCLA on Saturday. McCoy has taken most of the snaps, and since coming in for Gilbert against Rice, McCoy has completed 19 of his 25 passes for 225 yards, 2 touchdowns and no interceptions.

Garrett Gilbert is done for the season

Gilbert should be happy that he got hurt and has a chance at a red-shirt season if he so choses.  Texas seems to be playing solid of late and should have a good season.  McCoy is doing a good job and deserves the snaps for now.
