Putnam City North junior running back Dre Holman could miss the first couple games of the season after suffering a partially torn meniscus on the first day of football practice last week.

Holman underwent surgery to repair the knee Monday morning.

The injury was sad news for the Panthers as they prepared for a season with two standout running backs, Holman and senior Sam Wolfe.

And it was sad news for Holman, with everything he has endured on and off the football field since last summer. But from the few times I’ve spoken with him, he seems to be a strong kid — in both mind and body — so I’d look for him to come back from this with force.

The RB position was ravaged by injury last season at PC North, with Holman missing the first three games of the year with a high ankle sprain suffered in the first days of practice. In the second game of the season, Wolfe broke his collarbone and missed the rest of the year.

After returning from last season’s ankle injury, Holman rushed for 942 yards and seven touchdowns, often becoming a workhorse for the Panthers and turning in multiple 100-yard games.
