Sophomore quarterback Tyler Bass will have season-ending surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left non-throwing shoulder, the university announced Monday.
Bass suffered the injury against Central Florida on Oct. 3 and hasn’t played since.
Bass played in four games this season, making starts against UT Martin and Marshall. Against UT Martin, he had the best performance of any Tiger QB, in their first career start, in 38 years when he completed 22 of 28 passes for 293 yards and four touchdowns. He also rushed for 80 yards and a score on 16 carries in Memphis’ 41-14 win.
Senior Will Hudgens has been playing in Bass’ stead, and should continue to be the Tigers starter. This season, Hudgens has completed 56.2 percent of his passes for 638 yards and five touchdowns.
