Auburn quarterback Zach Calzada hasn't stepped on the field through three games this season, and it doesn't appear that will change between now and the end of the season. Auburn Live reported Thursday that Calzada, a redshirt sophomore from Sugar Hill, Georgia, will undergo season-ending surgery on his non-throwing shoulder and apply for a medical redshirt.

Calzada, a transfer from Texas A&M, was 184 of 328 (56.1%) for 2,185 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions last season. He started the final 10 games of the season in place of Haynes King, and threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns in the 41-38 win over Alabama on Oct. 9, 2021. 

This is not a new injury for Calzada. He initially injured the shoulder, ironically, against Auburn on Nov. 6 last year. That injury forced him to very limited action this spring for Bryan Harsin's Tigers. This second surgery on the shoulder is expected to take place soon in order for Calzada to be fully healthy when the Tigers hit the field in the spring of 2023.
