Minnesota running back Mo Ibrahim will have season-ending surgery for a lower-leg injury sustained in last Thursday’s season-opening loss to Ohio State.

Ibrahim left the game in the third quarter after rushing 30 times for 163 yards and two touchdowns. He later returned to the sideline wearing a walking boot.

The fifth-year senior earned third-team All-America honors in 2020 after rushing for 1,076 yards and 15 TDs for the Golden Gophers. He has 3,003 rushing yards and 33 TDs in his career at Minnesota.

His effort against the Buckeyes extended his school-record streak to nine consecutive games with 100-plus rushing yards.

Minnesota (0-1) plays host to Miami of Ohio (0-1) this Saturday.
