IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa running back Jordan Canzeri was scheduled for surgery Wednesday to repair a torn knee ligament and could miss the 2012 season.
Coach Kirk Ferentz says Canzeri is expected to need at least five to six months to recover. Ferentz wouldn't rule out a return by Canzeri next fall, saying it all depends on how quickly Canzeri can recover. The school did not identify which knee was injured.
Canzeri rushed for 114 yards as a freshman in 2011, including 58 in a loss to Oklahoma in the Insight Bowl.
