Army quarterback Trent Steelman had offseason surgery on his shoulder and will not be participating in the Black Knights spring practice, the Times Herald-Record is reporting.

It is not clear which shoulder the right-handed Steelman had surgery on. He injured his non-throwing shoulder during the Hawaii game in September.

Steelman, a sophomore, has been a model of durability while directing the triple option offense during his two years at West Point. He’s started all 25 games in the past two seasons and this year helped guide the Cadets to their first winning season since 1996 and their first bowl victory since 1985.

Army’s spring practice begins Feb. 16.
