USF's starting quarterback B.J. Daniels underwent surgery on his left, non-throwing shoulder on Friday afternoon, the procedure was successful and B.J. will be recovering for 4-6 weeks, and will be held out of contact situations and scrimmages this spring.

"We wish B.J. a full recovery," said USF head coach Skip Holtz. "As much as we would love for him to participate fully in spring practice, our number one objective is to make sure he has a complete and healthy recovery. I'm sure he wants to be out there going full bore with his teammates on a daily basis, but his participation in meetings and in practice will be very beneficial to his progress as a quarterback."

The redshirt freshman threw for nearly 2,000 yards and 14 touchdowns, while also rushing for 772 yards and nine scores during the 2009 season. B.J. actually suffered the partial rotator cuff tear during the Louisville game. Daniels tried to rehab it, but surgery was his best option for a full and quick recovery. .

Daniels is fully expected to participate in spring ball and 7-on-7 drills, but will be held out of contact situations and scrimmages. The team expects Daniels to be able to return to full activities in time for summer workouts
