Last night news was announced that CJ Fredrick had a (new) hamstring injury, and was seen using crutches during the teams shoot-around.
This afternoon, news broke that he will be out for the remainder of the season, reported by Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio.
"This news hurts so much because I love this team and we have a great group of guys," Fredrick said. "I have the best teammates, coaches, medical staff, friends and family that will get me back where I need to be. We have a very special team this season and I will do whatever I can to support the team. I am looking forward to working hard and being the player I want to be for next season. I appreciate all the support of Big Blue Nation during this difficult time. My journey looks a little different, but I will be back."
Fredrick will undergo surgery this week to repair his left hamstring.
The long awaited debut of Fredrick will be even longer. Tough news, and hopefully his road to recovery goes smoothly.
