Coach Turner Gill announced Tuesday that tests revealed Starks has a labral tear in his shoulder that requires surgery. Starks is a fifth-year senior and will not have any college eligibility left.
It's unclear when Starks was hurt, but he has practiced sparingly this past week.
Starks was considered one of the nation's top college running backs this season.
The injury is a blow to a Buffalo program coming off its best season since joining the Mid-American Conference in 1999. The Bulls went 8-6 last year to win their first MAC championship and make their first bowl appearance.
