Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels will not play in the BBVA Compass Bowl on January 4 after having surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee.

Coach James Franklin said Monday that Carta-Samuels tore his ACL in a win October. 19 over Georgia and had surgery to repair his knee shortly after the regular season ended November 30.

Carta-Samuels missed two games with the injury. But Franklin said doctors cleared Carta-Samuels to play with a brace after some rehabilitation.

The senior started after suffering the injury and helped the Commodores beat Kentucky, Tennessee and Wake Forest to finish 8-4 in the regular season a second straight year.

Patton Robinette will start against Houston in Birmingham, Alabama. Robinette started in a loss at Texas A&M and a win at Florida.
