NDSU offensive guard Jeff Jerve had surgery Monday for microfracture, which was one of the worst outcomes after he injured his knee last week in practice. Head coach Craig Bohl said he expects Jerve back in time for fall practice. It was initially thought that he could anywhere from two weeks to two months with meniscus damage.
His injured put in motion an offensive line shuffle that has Paul Cornick moving from right guard to right tackle and the guard spot a battle between Jesse Hinz, Joe Lund, Tyler Gimmestad and Ty Beckius. One will start at guard, the other at center.
“We’ll deal with it,” Bohl said.
Bohl said the 6-2, 290-pound Gimmestad’s move over from defensive tackle has gone well. “He brings something to the table,” he said.
