Surgery Successful on Tigers Rod Smith

Doctors say U of M Safety Rod Smith underwent successful surgery Tuesday morning after fracturing the C5 vertebrae in his neck Saturday against Arkansas State.

The surgery, performed at the Semmes-Murphy neurologic and Spine institute of Memphis, is called a fusion procedure.

It ends the Juniors' season.

No word on if he'll play again.
