Reports surfaced late Friday that Kansas University offensive lineman Brad Thorson will miss an undisclosed amount of time because of a broken foot suffered Friday morning.
One source indicated that Thorson would be ready to go for the start of the 2010 season.
KU officials declined to comment.
Thorson, an academic All-Big 12 selection in 2009, started all 12 games for the Jayhawks last season, with eight starts coming at left guard and four at right tackle. The senior from Mequon, Wis., is expected to be one of the Jayhawks’ leaders this fall under new coach Turner Gill.
