(KSL News) Governor Jon Huntsman is scheduled for shoulder surgery this Friday.

The doctor who diagnosed Huntsman's injury says he has a torn rotator cuff, which is likely the result of overuse.

He will remain in a sling for four to six weeks and then begin physical therapy. Huntsman won't be back in the office until next week, and even then only as needed.
