I'll have a feature story on Gophers middle linebacker Jack Lynn in tonight's first editions. Meantime, here are some quick notes from today's practice:
- Wide receiver Devon Wright had surgery on his shoulder capsule Tuesday and will miss the rest of spring camp. The Gophers hope to have him ready for the start of fall camp.
- Tackle Jonah Pirsig wore an orange non-participation jersey Tuesday. He’s having more trouble with his left knee cap, but it doesn’t appear he’ll need major surgery.
- The Gophers moved their next practice from Wednesday night to Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Kill canceled his one-day trip to The Masters with Gophers booster T. Denny Sanford. The University shelved all fundraising discussions with Sanford until merger talks conclude between Sanford Health and Fairview Health Services, a deal that could give the South Dakota firm control of the University’s Medical Center.
