Morris begins long road to recovery after knee surgery
Ben Morris will be sidelined for at least nine months after sustaining cruciate ligament damage.
The 19-year-old Academy graduate has had surgery after being injured in a training game and now begins the long road to recovery.
“The operation went well but we are looking at a recovery period of nine months to a year for Ben,” Town physio Matt Byard told the Club website.
The striker, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Forest Green Rovers, is the second Blue to suffer an ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] injury this season, with Grant Ward missing the rest of the campaign after damaging his knee at QPR in December.
Another Academy graduate, Ben Folami, is also out for the season after sustaining a ruptured achilles.
