Temple fifth-year senior Sean Boyle has been cleared for a medical redshirt.

As a result, the 6-foot-5, 300-pound center will return for a sixth-year next season likely as an offensive tackle.

Boyle, who missed the last two games with a left shoulder injury, has been hampered by shoulder injuries during his career.

After playing in every game as a true freshman in 2008, Boyle had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder at the end of the season.

Boyle seemed to have recovered and was the starting center in the 2009 season opener against Villanova. But he strained the labrum a couple of days later at practice. As a result, Boyle lost his starting position. He managed to participate on special teams and in a reserve role despite pain.

But the right shoulder didn't hold up. He suffered another tear in his labrum against UCLA in the season-ending EagleBank Bowl.
