(KSL News) Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff will go under the knife again today to repair his leg, which was broken in a motorcycle crash last week.

Shurtleff went down while practicing for a ride to raise money for a memorial for fallen police officers.

He tells the Deseret Morning News his lower leg bones are in shards, and it could be eight weeks before he can walk again. He has screws and rods in his heel and left leg. He also tore the rotator cuff in his left shoulder.

Shurtleff has already had one operation on his leg. He says a helmet saved his life during the crash.
