08:18 AM ET 01.03 | The NCAA career of Notre Dame football commit Torii Hunter Jr. has, for the time being, been put on hold. Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter confirmed Tuesday evening that his son ... suffered a broken left femur during U.S. Army All-American Bowl morning workouts at the Blossom Athletic Center. Hunter Jr. is expected to miss anywhere from six to eight months with the injury, according to his father. It could take as much as a year for him to fully recover. "It's a fracture, and it will require surgery," Hunter said of his son. "He's a tough boy. He's distraught right now, he's never had an injury before. I told him he'll bounce back. I know he will."

That kind of talk makes Torii uncomfortable.
