SMU quarterback Kyle Padron has asked and received a release from his scholarship. Padron, who began 2011 as the Mustangs' starter, was pulled just a couple series into the season opener after consecutive turnovers. Padron injured his back halfway through the season and SMU was planning to use 2011 as his redshirt year. But now, he has decided to transfer.

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.

Kyle Padron suffered a herniated disc injury while lifting weights the week before the Tulsa game and is probably going to sit out the rest of the season. Because he only played a few snaps this year, he will likely apply for a medical hardship to try and get another year of eligibility. If granted, SMU will have six quarterbacks come 2013.
