Football: Mustafa Jalil to have surgery

Sophomore defensive end Mustafa Jalil, hampered all season by a nagging right knee injury, will undergo season-ending surgery Monday, coach Jeff Tedford said.

Jalil, who did not play in Saturday’s 49-27 loss at Utah, is not facing major surgery, Tedford said, but has not been able to push off on the knee, which he injured during camp in August.

Senior guard Dominic Galas, who had an emergency appendectomy in Salt Lake City on Saturday, was scheduled to be released from the hospital on Sunday, Tedford said, and would return home with his parents in a day or two.

Galas is likely out for the season, but there is some possibility be could be ready to play in the Nov. 17 game at Oregon State, Tedford said.
