From Jon Wilner at the San Jose Mercury News:

Stanford will face Maryland in the Foster Farms Bowl without the services of top playmaker Ty Montgomery.

The senior wide receiver is being held out of Tuesday's game at Levi's Stadium because of a sprained right shoulder, coach David Shaw said Sunday.

"He can't protect himself," Shaw said. "We tried a couple different options. If the game was in a week, he'd be full go."

Montgomery leads Stanford with 61 receptions -- no one else is even close -- and is a threat to score as both a runner and kick/punt returner.

Montgomery suffered the injury early in the Big Game on Nov. 22 when he was tackled by two Cal defenders and landed on the shoulder.

"He can't protect himself," coach David Shaw said, according to the San Jose Mercury News. "We tried a couple different options. If the game was in a week, he'd be full go."

Montgomery had offseason surgery to repair the shoulder but re-injured it at Cal on Nov. 22. He did not play in Stanford's regular-season finale -- a 31-10 win at UCLA -- and will now see his career with the Cardinal come to a close.

Stanford's pass catchers have been lackluster throughout the season with Montgomery's 61 receptions and 604 yards leading the way for the group. The senior's three touchdowns were second to classmate Devon Cajuste, who has hauled in four scores on 30 total receptions.
