Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said Tuesday that Iowa offensive lineman Julian Vandervelde hasn’t had surgery, but he also didn’t confirm or deny that the junior suffered some sort of training injury recently.
“He hasn’t had surgery,” Ferentz said. “During the course of training, we’re going to have guys who get injured. If there’s an announcement to be made, we’ll make it. But right now, nothing pending.”
Ferentz was asked if he expected Vandervelde to be available for practice, “I don’t know that. We’ve got a couple months where the guys are going to be training. Hopefully, we won’t lose anybody over the course of the summer, but you never know. You can never be 100 percent positive.”
