Sutton undergoes successful wrist surgery

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Just a quick note that Northwestern senior running back Tyrell Sutton underwent successful wrist surgery Tuesday. Sutton likely will miss the final four regular-season games but could be back for a bowl game.

Northwestern next plays Saturday against No. 17 Minnesota (ESPN2, noon ET). Senior Omar Conteh will start in Sutton's place.
