UNC quarterback out for the season

CHAPEL HILL - This is a press release from the University of North Carolina:

University of North Carolina senior quarterback Bryn Renner will undergo season-ending surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder Wednesday at UNC Hospitals.  The surgery, which will be performed by Dr. Alex Creighton, is required to repair a detached labrum and fracture in the injured shoulder.

The most accurate passer in UNC history with a 66.5 completion percentage, Renner finishes his Carolina career ranked second in passing touchdowns (64), third in passing yards (8,221), third in completions (668) and third in attempts (1,005).

A fifth-year senior from West Springfield, Va., Renner started all but one game since the start of the 2011 season (32 total) and his career pass efficiency mark of 151.22 is the best in Atlantic Coast Conference history.  This season, he completed 152 of 231 attempts for 1,765 yards, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions.  He ranks third in the ACC with 252.1 yards passing per game this year.

"We are disappointed to lose a senior leader and a great teammate like Bryn," said UNC head coach Larry Fedora.  "He has meant so much to the Carolina program and I've enjoyed coaching him the last two seasons. He is one of the most prolific quarterbacks in school history and his contributions will be sorely missed."
