Campbell Out vs. Wake, Scott May Not be Lost for Season
A quick update from Coach Ralph Friedgen’s Sunday teleconference:
Friedgen is cautiously optimistic that he could get running back Da’Rel Scott back for the Florida State game on Nov. 21. Scott suffered a broken left radius in Saturday’s victory over Clemson. Friedgen believes Scott broke his wrist when he landed on it during the game. The medical staff is looking into whether Scott would be able to wear a unique cast to protect his wrist upon an early return. He is expected to undergo surgery Tuesday, when he will have a plate inserted into his arm.
Left tackle Bruce Campbell will not play Saturday at Wake Forest. He will undergo an MRI Monday after injuring his medial collateral ligament in his knee Saturday. The MRI will show whether the ligament is torn or just stretched. “It would really thin us out if we don’t have him” for any length of time, Friedgen said.
True freshman running back Caleb Porzel (knee) will return this week. Porzel and fellow freshman D.J. Adams could figure into the mix now that Scott is injured. Friedgen was pleased with how running back Gary Douglas played Saturday. “Losing Da’Rel is tough, but it is at a position where we have a lot of running backs,” Friedgen said. “I think we have good talent.”
