LAWRENCE, Kan., Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Fourth-ranked Kansas' leading scorer, sophomore guard Sherron Collins, will miss six weeks after having surgery on his left foot Monday.

"The surgery was performed to correct a stress fracture that came to light this morning when Sherron was X-rayed," Coach Bill Self said. "Sherron sprained his ankle last night (against the University of Missouri-Kansas City) and was very sensitive to touch after the game. The sprained ankle aggravated an existing stress fracture that required surgery."

Collins has averaged 16 points per game while leading the Jayhawks to a 2-0 start this season. An All-Big 12 Honorable Mention last season while being named to the Big 12 All-Rookie Team, Collins helped the Jayhawks win their second-consecutive Big 12 championship.

"Sherron will be out of action for approximately six weeks but should be ready by the start of the new year," Self said.
