The Iowa Hawkeyes did not have many true freshmen who saw significant playing time during the 2011 season. Running back Jordan Canzeri, a three-star prospect who came in from Troy High School in New York, was one of those players, starting one game and playing in six others.
On Thursday, Rob Howe of Hawkeye Insider reported that Canzeri has suffered a knee injury. According to Brian Canzeri, Jordan's father, his son will be undergoing an MRI. The extent of the injury is not currently known.
Brian Canzeri said not sure of severity of injury. "We're not jumping to conclusions. He's a tough kid & a hard worker. He'll be OK."— Rob Howe (@HawkeyeInsider) March 29, 2012
In seven games in 2011, Canzeri had 114 yards on 31 carries, as well as 28 yards and a touchdown on six receptions. The Hawkeyes are hoping that Canzeri will be a big contributor during the rest of his time at the school.
