Jordan Fuchs injury update: Hoosiers TE dislocates ankle

The Indiana Hoosiers got their 2016 season off to a positive start with a win over FIU, but it came at a cost.

In the first quarter of Thursday night’s game, tight end Jordan Fuchs suffered a serious injury that has put his season in jeopardy. According to Hoosiers head coach Kevin Wilson, Fuchs suffered a dislocated ankle.

His injury is significant,” Wilson said, via Rivals.com. “It’s a dislocation, might need a surgery to an ankle that might take some time but could potentially get back this season, but he’s got a redshirt year.”

It’s an unfortunate injury for Fuchs, who was finally looking to become a key contributor on the roster.

Fuchs has seven receptions for 69 yards and three touchdowns throughout his career with the Hoosiers. Fuchs is also a member of the basketball program, recording five rebounds last season.

There was a belief that Fuchs was set to join the basketball team again in 2016, so we will have to see just how long this injury will keep him away from athletics.
