Don’t know how much it means, but the SBT had a little blurb on Michael Turkovich’s injury on Sunday.
Senior left offensive tackle Mike Turkovich was carried from the field in the fourth quarter with an apparent knee injury and was on crutches after the game. Sophomore Matt Romine replaced him in the lineup and filled in nicely.
Turkovich told family members after the game he was fine, and Weis sort of echoed that sentiment.
If Turkovich is indeeed just fine, that would be excellent news for an offensive line which has now allowed just 5 sacks in 5 sacks this season. Turk has more than held his own at left tackle and has really played about as well as anyone could have expected for a converted guard.
Notre Dame will face a very fast and aggressive defense next week when they travel to Chapel Hill which makes Turkovich’s health a rather important subplot for this week.
