Arguably its deepest and most talented unit entering the 2013 season, Indiana’s offensive line has taken a rather significant hit less than two weeks before the start of the new year.
Guard Dan Feeney, head coach Kevin Wilson said Tuesday, suffered a lisfranc injury during the Hoosiers’ most recent scrimmage after a teammate fell on his right foot. As a result, the lineman will miss the entire 2013 season.
Wilson added that Feeney will undergo surgery in the near future to repair the damage.
As a true freshman last season, Feeney started all 12 games for the Hoosiers. Following a season in which he didn’t allow sack, he was named to the Big Ten’s All-Freshman squad.
With Feeney out, Wilson is expected to turn to redshirt sophomore Jake Reed.
