Hurricanes running back Duke Johnson underwent surgery Monday to repair his broken right ankle, coach Al Golden said Tuesday.
UM team physician Lee Kaplan performed the operation.
“I left him a message last night,’’ Golden said of Johnson. “Texted him this morning. When we get out of here [Tuesday] I think he’ll be in a position where we can talk or go see him later.
“All indications are everything went well,” Golden said. “He’s got a great personality, he’s resilient and he’ll be back better than ever.”
Needs to ‘relax’
UM kicker Matt Goudis has missed his last three field-goal attempts from 40 yards or longer.
“He’s been great in practice,” Golden said. “We’ve just got to get him to relax. … We have a lot of faith in him, and now he’s just got to trust his technique, let it go and move on.”
