MCLOUTH, Kan. | A McLouth High School football player had part of his leg amputated after being injured in a game.
McLouth senior Trevor Roberts was injured Sept. 24 during a game against Sunrise Christian Academy in Bel Aire.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Roberts suffered a compound fracture in his lower left leg. Complications from the injury last week required doctors to amputate Roberts' leg just above the knee.
Jerrad Humerickhouse, who is Roberts' guardian, said after a third surgery, Roberts was doing well. The family was told he might be released from the hospital on Thursday.
