AMES, Iowa (AP) Iowa State running back Shontrelle Johnson will miss the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31 against Tulsa with a knee injury.
Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads says Johnson injured his right knee making a cut during practice on Saturday. Rhoads says Johnson likely will have surgery in January.
Johnson started six games this season. He leads Iowa State (6-6) with 504 yards rushing.
Iowa State likely will start James White against Tulsa (10-3). White rushed for 469 yards on 5.3 yards per carry this season.
Johnson's injury also could open up more playing time for backup Jeff Woody.
The winter can feel like one of the slowest seasons of the year, especially for baseball fans who long for the season to pick back up again.
But Nationals outfielder Juan Soto met with fans on Saturday at a Dick’s Sporting Goods in Bailey's Crossroads, Virginia, and did his best to make them feel merry by getting in the holiday spirit.
Soto already helped give D.C. the greatest gift of all in a World Series title, so maybe he really is Mr. Claus.

The MCL sprain is in the same knee Guice injured in 2018 with an ACL tear, but according to Rapoport, the ACL is still intact following Sunday's injury. Before learning the results of the MRI, Redskins head coach Bill Callahan told the media Monday that Guice will not play Sunday's Week 15 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. It is unclear whether Guice will play the remaining two games of the season against the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
Guice tweeted Tuesday about his positive outlook regarding the diagnosis.
