The father of Iowa running back Jordan Canzeri confirmed to Hawkeye Insider Thursday night that an MRI performed on his son revealed that he tore his ACL. The injury happened in a non-contact drill.
"Dr. (Ned) Amendola said it was the ACL but the good news is that the rest of the knee is solid," Brian Canzeri said. "He's going to have surgery next week and hopes to get back into practice in September." Brian Canzeri said that he expects his son to ease into things when he's cleared to practice and will most likely redshirt for the 2012 season.
How ridiculous is this? A legitimate sports writer for a newspaper has had to write an article explaining how the Iowa RB position is not cursed. In January, Patrick Vint at Black Heart Gold Pants did a fantastic job explaining why that might not be the case.
