MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) Ball state guard Jeremiah Davis will miss eight to 10 weeks after undergoing surgery on his right foot, coach James Whitford said Wednesday.
Davis, a junior, was injured in practice Tuesday. The Cardinals open the season Nov. 14 at Utah.
Davis, a native of Muncie where Ball State is located, decided to transfer from the University of Cincinnati after his family was displaced last year by a house fire last year. After moving back in December, he sat out the second half of last season. The NCAA granted him a waiver so he could compete immediately.
Davis averaged 2.5 points and 0.9 rebounds as a freshman with the Bearcats, but a wrist injury limited him to four games as a sophomore and he played in only six games last season.
