MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota linebacker Cody Poock (POHK) has been scheduled for season-ending surgery on his shoulder.

Gophers coach Tracy Claeys said Tuesday that the decision was made to give Poock the opportunity to recover as soon as possible from the procedure. Claeys says Poock’s lingering injury isn’t “doing anybody any good.” He didn’t say when Poock would have the surgery.

Nick Rallis has replaced Poock in the lineup in Minnesota’s base defense. Poock, a junior who started his career at Iowa Western Community College, sat out the 2014 season with a knee injury. This year, he has 24 tackles in seven games, with one sack.

Minnesota plays at No. 21 Nebraska on Saturday. Rallis must sit out the first half of that game after being ejected for targeting last week against Purdue.
