Safety Kim Royston Plans to Play in Opener
Minnesota Gopher Football captain Kim Royston told the Star Tribune that he plans on playing in the season opener after he broke two bones in his left leg during spring practice. The starting safety had 86 tackles last season and 1 interception after transferring from the Wisconsin Badgers. It was feared that he would be lost for the season when it happened but his recovery has been going quicker than expected. After breaking his fibula and tibia in his lower left leg, Kim Royston needed two surgeries and a metal rod inserted in his leg to stabilize the break. His return will be a big boost to the defense.
