Cave expected back for spring ball

Center Braxston Cave will undergo surgery on his injured foot today, coach Brian Kelly said.

“I’ve had two centers who played for me who had a similar injury,” Kelly said. “They both came back and were fine but it takes time.”Cave had a ligament pulled off the bone mid-foot. The surgery will reattach it. Kelly said recovery time is similar to an ACL injury in the knee.“Braxston will be back,” Kelly said. “Our guess is he’s limited to spring in terms of contact but he’ll be out there snapping, running tempo, doing all the things. We expect him to fully recover.”
