"He's going to have surgery tomorrow," Kragthorpe said. "He's got that shoulder separation that hasn't come around like we thought it would. Had we been able to win last week and this week to qualify for a bowl he might have been able to play in that but since we're not going to be able to do that we'll just get him ready for spring ball because I want him available in spring practice. By having the surgery tomorrow we should be closer to that."
Anderson missed two games because of the injury but returned last week against Syracuse. Anderson, who carried three times in the first half for minus-7 yards, didn't return in the second half of that contest and didn't play in Louisville's 34-22 loss to South Florida on Saturday.
Despite missing three games, Anderson leads UofL with 473 yards and five touchdowns.
