From Gary Kubiak's post-game press conference: "...Kasey (Studdard) did have surgery on Friday, yesterday. I talked to him after surgery. He’s doing well. Matter fact I think he actually came home this evening. I’ll find out when I leave here. Actually Kasey’s gonna, it looks like he will not play this year. I don’t know. We’ll see, but he did have surgery and he’s well on his way to recovery." If Studdard does get stashed then a door of opportunity opens for Shelley Smith and the rest of the young guards. UPDATE: Per CBSSports Rapid Reports, Houston will decide Studdard's fate on Monday.
