Early reports from Southside indicate that linebacker Shane Murray will have to have surgery on his injured knee and will miss the remainder of the season. The Panthers and Shane were hoping to be able to hold off on surgery until the end of the season but the injured knee has not improved to where the staff had hoped he would be at this point. Also since Shane has dressed for a few games this season it looks like a medical redshirt will not be a possibility making next season his last. This also means that Austin Ransom will be the starting linebacker for the rest of the season barring any unusual circumstances.
Hopefully Shane can recover well and finish up his career with the Panthers on a good note next season.
