July 13, 2010

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas offensive tackle Jeff Spikes will miss the 2010 season due to a lower leg injury it was confirmed by Jayhawks head coach Turner Gill.

Spikes, a 6-6, 325-pound, junior, has been a two-year starter for Kansas. He started all 13 games as a freshman in 2008 and 10 games last season. His 23 career starts are third among active players at KU behind only defensive back Chris Harris (29) and fellow lineman Jeremiah Hatch (24).

He played right tackle for the first eight games of 2009 before moving to right guard for the remainder of the season.

In 2008 he earned Phil Steele Freshman All-America Third-Team honors, starting four games at left tackle and nine at right tackle.

The Painesville, Ohio native redshirted his first year at Kansas in 2007.
