Unfortunately, those plans may have been derailed.
Jayhawks head coach Turner Gill confirmed Monday evening that the running back suffered a lower leg injury during practice and will miss the remainder of spring practice. Gill said Bourbon will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair the injury, which he would not specify.
However, a since-deleted tweet from a teammate’s Twitter page indicated that Bourbon had broken his leg and fractured his ankle. Off that, the Lawrence Journal-World speculates that the back’s season could be in doubt because of the injury.
Rivals.com listed Bourbon as a four-star player and the No. 29 RB in the country coming out of high school last year.
