Mike Schupp out indefinitely with ACL injury

Navy starting wide receiver Mike Schupp tore his right anterior cruciate ligament during the second half of Monday's 17-14 loss to Maryland. While the injury could end his season, Coach Ken Niumatalolo has not ruled out the senior coming back for the Army game on Dec. 11.

What is certain is Schupp won't be on the field for Saturday's home opener against Georgia Southern at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Junior Doug Furman, who was competing for a starting job during training camp, most likely will start in Schupp's place.

"He's a great young man," Niumatalolo said of Schupp, who according to Navy officials has not decided if he will have surgery. "Unfortunately he got injured. It's just a fluke. He just kind of planted on the turf, and his knee gave way."

The Midshipmen also may not be with starting right tackle Matt Molloy on Saturday. The senior suffered a concussion in the second half against Maryland. If Molloy is unavailable, junior Ryan Bansford is the likely choice to take his place.

"We take that seriously," Niumatalolo said of the concussion. "His health is first and foremost. Obviously we'd like him to come back, but we want Matt to be healthy, so whatever decision comes from the doctor and the family, obviously that's what's going to happen."
