Huners optimistic after knee surgery
USF starting left guard Matt Huners, a junior from Palm Harbor, underwent reconstructive surgery Friday to repair torn anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee.
Huners, who injured his knee during USF's spring football game last month, said the surgery went well and he'll soon begin the rehabilitation process with the hopes of returning in time for USF's season opener Sept. 1 against Elon.
"Our goal right now is the first game, but we'll see how it's going," Huners said. "That's all we can do, but I'll be back."
