Former LSU linebacker Damone Clark is undergoing spinal fusion surgery Thursday, NFL Network reported.

An MRI at the scouting combine in Indianapolis earlier this month revealed a herniated disk, per the report.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has Clark ranked as the No. 4 inside linebacker prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft class.

The report said Clark will likely miss his 2022 rookie season but he is expected to make a full recovery.

Clark led the Southeastern Conference with 136 tackles in 2021, adding 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception in 12 games for the Tigers.
