MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia left guard Josh Jenkins will miss this season after undergoing surgery on his left knee.
Jenkins was injured in West Virginia's spring game April 29 and had surgery July 5.
Trainer David Kerns said Wednesday that Jenkins' medial collateral ligament healed properly, but surgery was needed to stabilize the knee.
Kerns says Jenkins is eligible for a medical hardship waiver and should return for his senior season in 2012.
Jenkins has 24 career starts. He injured his right knee last season, underwent arthroscopic surgery and missed two games.
