Nico Firios undergoes season ending surgery

Redshirt freshman linebacker Nico Firios underwent season-ending surgery sometime recently for a shoulder injury. Firios tweeted this last night to thank those who have supported him through the surgery.

After opening the season as the Cats’ no. 2 middle linbacker, Firios was sidelined for the Mizzou and Florida games with an unknown injury. Firios had just returned to the team for the Eastern Kentucky game, although he didn’t do much.

KSR’s thoughts are with Firios and his family and wish him a healthy and speedy recovery.

    Had surgery on Friday for a torn labrum. Met him recently and asked him how his season was going. Told me about his injury then. He knows his shot to make an impact is next year.

    Can’t wait for this kid to get healthy and tear it up next year. He did some serious pad popping in high school. Look for him to be a beast some day.
