PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) _ Kerry Porter, the Pacific-10 Conference’s leading rusher in 1983, underwent successful surgery on Monday to repair a shoulder separation and fractured shoulder blade.

Porter, a junior running back, was injured in Washington State’s loss to Arizona State on Oct. 26.

Porter will be sidelined for this season’s remaining games against Montana State on Nov. 16 and Washington on Nov. 23, WSU Sports Information Director Rod Commons said Tuesday. Porter is expected to completely recover for the 1986 season, Commons added.

Porter is WSU’s second leading rusher this season, behind senior Rueben Mayes.
