Bloomington – Time will tell is Ray Fisher's Indiana football career is done.

Bloomington – Time will tell is Ray Fisher's Indiana football career is done.

The senior cornerback/kick returner left Saturday's Iowa game after injuring his knee on the game's opening kick-off. Fisher didn't return, and he's now scheduled to undergo knee surgery Wednesday.

"There's no such thing as minor surgery," IU Coach Bill Lynch said Tuesday. "But he's going to have some surgery, so we're hoping. It's not reconstructive or anything like that."

While Fisher's surgery might be relatively minor, there are only three weeks left in the regular season. Lynch said Fisher will not play this weekend against Wisconsin, but he's not ready to concede that the 5'9", 172-pound senior has played his last game for the Hooseirs.

"We'll have to wait and see first of next week," Lynch said of Fisher's availability moving forward. "I'm not ready to (rule him out for the season) yet."

In his absence, junior Adrian Burks is listed as a No. 1 cornerback opposite Donnell Jones. Richard Council is listed as Burks' back-up, while Andre LaGrone is listed as a No. 2 behind Jones.
