Padron to have foot surgery

SMU backup quarterback Kyle Padron, who missed most of the season with a herniated disc, will have foot surgery. He did not practice with the Mustangs during the bowl break. Padron will likely redshirt and could receive two more years of eligibility.

As first reported by The Dallas Morning News, SMU backup quarterback Kyle Padron will have foot surgery.

He did not practice with the team at all during the bowl break.

Padron, who was yanked as the Mustangs' starter after just a few plays in the Texas A&M game, also suffered from a herniated disc before the Tulsa game and didn't practice with the team at any point thereafter.

The Morning News reports that this injury is the result of other damage from an ankle injury he sustained last year against East Carolina.

Padron will likely be redshirted and therefore have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

This means SMU will again have a plethora of quarterbacks over the next few years in Padron, Garrett Gilbert, Connor Preston, Stephen Kaiser and Neal Burcham.
