Earlier today, Texas distance star Sam Worley announced via Instagram that he has fractured his tibia after taking a fall during his mile race at the Husky Classic. Worley's announcement was accompanied by a video of him on crutches.
It is unclear how long Worley will be out of competition, although one can easily assume that he will be unavailable for the rest of this indoor track season and very likely the entirety of the upcoming outdoor track season.
Worley's expected absence will remove an All-American favorite out of the national picture both this winter and (most likely) the upcoming spring season. While his recovery timeline is still unclear, there may be potential for him to return in the fall of 2020 where Worley can complete his senior season of cross country. However, without understanding the full magnitude of his fracture, it is difficult to know when Worley will be available for competition.
