The Copley Indians will be without starting running back and University of Tennessee recruit Aregeros Turner for the rest of the season, his mother told the Beacon Journal.
Turner broke his tibia during last Friday’s game against the Green Bulldogs, a game the Indians eventually lost 42-21 despite his best efforts.
Prior to the injury, Turner, a junior, rushed the ball 16 times for 112 yards including an 80-yard TD run and caught three passes for 43 yards.
Cassandra Turner said that her son’s surgery went well.
“The surgeon was able to realign his tibia almost perfectly,” she said.
Turner is facing a 3-6 month recovery time, she said. That definitely puts him out for the rest of the football season and could delay or prohibit him from running track in the spring.
The Indians (5-3, 3-2) will face the Tallmadge (6-2, 5-0) this weekend.
