UCLA Football: Sean Sheller to have season-ending surgery Tuesday
Sheller, a sixth-year senior, was injured against Texas when his arm was caught between two helmets on a play near the goal line. The surgery will require placing plates and screws on the bones to help it heal.
The injury ends his season -- and his college career.
Sheller overcame two knee surgeries to become a key member of the offensive line. He injured his right knee in 2006 and his left knee in 2008. He recovered and started 13 of the last 14 games.
Sheller played both tackle positions, but was moved to guard for the Texas game.
Chris Ward and Albert Cid are expected to compete to fill Sheller’s spot on the line.
