Whitehurst has Surgery

Clemson quarterback Charlie Whitehurst underwent shoulder surgery on Monday after it was stated on Nov. 21, that he wouldn't need it.

Whitehurst was operated on by Dr. Larry Bowman in Seneca to clean up a fraying of the posterior lining in his throwing shoulder. It was minor orthopedic surgery and Whitehurst was released shortly after it completion.

"It went well," David Whitehurst, the quarterback's father, told CUTigers.com. "Everything went according to plan."

David Whitehurst said his son will be able to play in Clemson's upcoming bowl game, whenever that may be.

Since the fourth game of the season, the senior quarterback has been battling a sore throwing shoulder, which forced him to miss the entire game against Duke late in the season.

It was initially believed that all the quarterback needed to repair his shoulder was old fashioned rest. But this was done to go ahead and speed up the healing process, which will ease any issues NFL teams may have had entering the draft.
