Cal freshman quarterback Jared Goff underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair a right shoulder separation he sustained in the Bears’ 63-13 season-ending loss at Stanford in the Big Game.
Goff, who set a Cal single-season record with 3,508 passing yards, is expected to be fully recovered in time for Cal’s spring workouts.
“We are pleased that Jared is expected to make a full recovery and be back on the field for spring ball,” Cal coach Sonny Dykes said. “We have confidence he can build on the promising campaign he had in his first season at Cal.”
Goff was injured on a hit by Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov midway through the second quarter on Saturday.
The Marin native broke Cal’s single-game record with 504 yards against Washington State and became the second Pac-12 quarterback with three games of at least 450 yards. He threw 18 touchdowns this fall.
