Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State's star running back, confirmed he will have wrist surgery for the second time in six months over Twitter.
I head into surgery for my wrist Friday morning.— EzekielElliott#15 (@EzekielElliott) February 17, 2015
Elliott, who had surgery in August during the team's training camp after breaking his left wrist, hinted at having another procedure during the Buckeyes' postseason run.
Ezekiel Elliott says he can't carry the ball with his left hand, and we'll have another surgery on his left wrist following the game.— Jeremy Birmingham (@Birm) January 10, 2015
Additional details were first reported by Dave Biddle of Bucknuts.com, who said it was thought Elliott could avoid wrist surgery this time around, but a Monday morning doctor's appointment changed all that.
At this time, it's not known how this surgery will affect Elliott's spring camp, but until then, it's Next Man Up.
