Tom Pelissero of USA Today is reporting that Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly underwent surgery on Monday for an acute rupture of ligament between two bones in his throwing wrist. No throwing for 3 months.
According to Pelissero, Kelly won’t be able to throw a ball for the next three months following the procedure.
The surgery was performed at Dr. James Andrews’ clinic and he’s confident that Kelly will make a full recovery should be ready for the start of training camp.
Kelly aggravated his throwing wrist while working out a few weeks ago.
Kelly, 22, originally began his career at Clemson before later transferring to Ole Miss for the 2015 season. He had some off-the-field issues to go along with a serious knee injury, so it will be interesting to see where he goes in this year’s draft.
In total, Kelly threw for 6,858 yards while completing 63.8 percent of his passes to go along with 50 touchdowns and 22 interceptions over the course of 27 games.
