No fracture for WR Lee-Odai, who will return in two weeks

Coach Ralph Friedgen received good and bad news on the injury front Wednesday.

After further evaluation, wide receiver Emani Lee-Odai, who injured his pinky finger while blocking a punt in Tuesday’s practice, did not suffer a fracture, as Friedgen had initially thought, and will not need surgery.

Friedgen said Lee-Odai, who has taken more of a leadership role on special teams as a senior, suffered a compound dislocation and will likely be out just two weeks.

Tight end Lansford Watson, meantime, may need surgery because of a partial tear of his MCL. Friedgen had hoped that the junior could return to practice this week with a brace, but Watson has been “struggling” with the injury. Watson caught seven passes for 66 yards last season.
