Columbia, SC (Sports Network) - South Carolina junior quarterback Connor Shaw underwent successful surgery on his left foot on Friday, according to the Gamecocks' team physician.

Shaw, who originally hurt his foot on Oct. 27 against Tennessee, aggravated the injury prior to the Gamecocks' game-winning drive over Michigan at the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1.

The injury hampered Shaw most of the season, but he still threw 17 touchdowns against seven interceptions while passing for 1,956 yards. He also was the team's second-leading rusher with 435 yards and three touchdowns on 131 carries.

Redshirt freshman linebacker Cedrick Cooper also had surgery on Friday after injuring his left knee during bowl mini-camp.

Both players are expected to make a full recovery. However, neither is expected to be ready for the team's 2013 spring drills.
