Christenson has surgery

Starting center Jon Christenson had surgery Sunday after suffering a season-ending left leg injury in Saturday’s game. Kill couldn’t provide other details but said, “I just feel terrible. The game of football’s a great game, but it’s a hard game, and ... [Christenson] is a beautiful kid, and smart, so it’s a shame.”

Kill added, “It’s a shame, however the kid that came in [at center] just did a tremendous job — Tommy Olson. So that’s why we always preach about depth.”
