NDSU got a mixed bag of health reviews today in the first full day of football practice after the Christmas break. Senior free safety Daniel Eaves returned at full strength after missing the Georgia Southern and Lehigh University playoff games with a knee injury. But starting left tackle Billy Turner did not practice because of what head coach Craig Bohl called a twisted ankle.
Bohl said he didn’t think the injury “would be an issue.”
He said receiver Trevor Gebhart, who was questionable in returning from a broken leg, will not be back for the national championship game against Sam Houston State.
“There will be certain guys that will be able to go into this game along the lines of 100 percent of what they were,” Bohl said. “They were kind of going game to game.”
