Arizona wide receiver Jamarye Joiner is scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday for a foot injury the redshirt freshman suffered just before the spring football practice period.
Joiner's mother, Christina Peña, announced Joiner's surgery on Twitter early Tuesday morning.
Joiner is believed to have suffered a Jones fracture, which is a break between the base of the foot and the fifth metatarsal. This causes pain in the middle and outside part of the foot, and could take anywhere from six to 12 weeks to fully recover.
Following surgery, Joiner will use crutches and a scooter to move around for two weeks. After that, Joiner will be in walking boot for four weeks, which will have Joiner 100% healthy just prior to preseason training camp — if the start of the college football season in on time.
In 2019, Joiner converted from quarterback to wide receiver and emerged as the top pass-catcher for the Wildcats with 34 receptions for 552 yards and five touchdowns, including a 140-yard and two-touchdown performance in the season finale against Arizona State.
