Scott is Questionable
Just got off the phone with Ralph Friedgen, who had his usual Sunday chat with beat writers.
The player to watch this week will be running back Da’Rel Scott, who is expected to be non-contact in practice this week and who is questionable for Saturday’s game against Eastern Michigan, Ralph Friedgen said. Scott has a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder.
Defensive back Richard Taylor injured his knee and will undergo an MRI on Monday. Friedgen said Taylor injured his lateral ligament. If Taylor needs surgery, Friedgen said, he is likely out for the season. If Taylor does not need surgery, Friedgen said, he is likely out four weeks.
Wide receiver Laquan Williams may have broken his foot, Friedgen said, but Williams needs to have another X-ray on Monday.
Defensive end Mack Frost may have re-injured his knee and Friedgen does not know if he will be available this week. Defensive back Nolan Carroll is also hurting. Friedgen said several players were hurting but finished the game.
Friedgen wants to think more about his kicker situation, and also confer with assistants, before making a decision whether he will have an open competition this week. Kicker Obi Egekeze has missed all five of his field goal attempts this season. If Friedgen does name another starting kicker, it will likely be either Nick Wallace or Mike Barbour.
Friedgen also repeatedly praised Chris Turner throughout tonight’s telephone call. I will have more on that and other info later on, once I get home. Thanks.
