Thoughts on Injuries
This is a response to a comment from Terpfan: First of all, I want to thank everyone for all the e-mails and comments this week. I really appreciate the kind words. As far as injury updates, it’s tricky to get specifics from Ralph Friedgen. Most of the time when I ask, he references the injury report released Thursday, and that’s all he will say. But there are other times when he will just talk about injuries without being asked. So he is hard to predict (so is the team).
So I’m reading between the lines a little, but here are my thoughts.
Mack Frost. His knee injury does not appear to be serious. I would be surprised if he is out next week vs. Clemson.
Travis Ivey. Friedgen has continued to eye the Clemson game as a potential return date. A lot will be based on how Ivey practices early in the week, I would think. I will try to get an update this Sunday.
Terrell Skinner. High ankle sprains are frustrating and nagging. Friedgen said two to three weeks after the MTSU game, so it may be a stretch for him to return for the Clemson game. The game against the quarterback-deprived Virginia Cavaliers might be more realistic.
LaQuan Williams. This one is more difficult to determine because I have not gotten a specific update on Williams.
On another front, Friedgen praised two freshmen, saying that offensive lineman Justin Lewis and defensive lineman A.J. Francis should soon see action.
