FALL CAMP DAY 7, II: Damn that injury bug
Freshman OT Garrett Weinreich fell to the turf Monday night with what appeared to be severe pain in his left knee. Weinreich had to be carried off the field in a cart – no one likes to hear that.
As of Monday night, the severity of Weinreich's injury was unknown – Mike Riley is unavailable to speak to media on evening sessions when there are two practices in a day. And even if he would have been, tests likely have to be performed to conclusively determine the scope of the injury, good or bad.
BF.C will update you as soon as OSU releases information.
Redshirt freshman Brandon Bennett sat out the second half of practice for reasons not entirely clear at press time – it looked like he may have injured his hand (does not appear to be serious).
Anthony Watkins, Rusty Fernando, Gavin Andrews, Caleb Smith and Tyler Perry all remained on the sidelines throughout the second session of the day.
- The evening practices on fall camp two-a-days are relatively brief. The Beavers practiced red zone offensive/defensive scenarios for a good portion of the evening, with scattered success.
- In fact, most of that scattering was done to the football itself, as the Beavs tallied a grand total of six fumbles running various drills inside the 25-yard line (two by Sean Mannion, one by Cody Vaz, one off a bad snap form Roman Sapolu, and two muffs by freshman running back Chris Brown.)
- Naji Patrick returned to the practice squad after sitting out two days with a groin injury.
- Connor Hamlett made himself known in the end zone Monday night with two nice catches. Hamlett is a big body player has been aggressive down near the goal line. He presents a constant target for Mannion and has soft enough hands to make big plays in the clutch.
- One of the main reasons Hamlett saw more playing time this evening than the senior Colby Prince was because Prince was "kindly" asked to step off the field (joining the rest of the watching practice squad) by Jay Locey after dropping three out of four passes thrown his way in drills.
Prince subsequently returned later in practice and set a few good blocks for running backs Malcolm Agnew and Terron Ward.
- WR Richard Mullaney showed no ill effect from a hand injury scare a few days back. On Monday night, he displayed good hands on a variety of occasions.
- Brown saw the bulk of the carries during the evening session.
