Jack “Goose” Givens to have surgery on Achilles following Legends Game

After going down with an injury in the UK Legends Game this past weekend, Jack “Goose” Givens will reportedly undergo surgery to repair a torn Achilles.

Big Blue Insider’s Dick Gabriel posted the news on Twitter:

Givens hit one of his patented baseline jumpers immediately after entering the game and came down awkwardly on his foot. He tried staying in the game, but eventually made his way to the sideline in excruciating pain.

Best of luck to the Kentucky legend as he goes under the knife tomorrow and hopefully recovers as soon as possible.

    Hate to hear this. Need to reconsider the ages of who’s asked to actually play in this game.
