UB back-up tailback James Potts will miss the Kent State game on Sept. 19 and could be lost for the season Bulls coach Jeff Quinn said this morning on the MAC coaches conference call. The Bulls continue to await a definitive medical determination.
The injury is a cruel blow for Potts, who worked his way back to academic eligibility and showed the speed and elusiveness that made him a prized recruit in going 49 yards for a TD against Morgan State Saturday. It was his second collegiate carry.
Potts suffered a right leg injury (it appeared to be the knee) in the ensuing celebration.
UB has depth at running back in Brandon Murie (a junior from Elma), true freshman Devin Campbell from Youngstown, Ohio and sophomore Anthone Taylor from Huber Heights, Ohio. Another true freshman, former Sweet home star Jordan Johnson, has not played to this point and appeared headed for a redshirt freshman season. Murie had three carries for 13 yards Saturday.
