UB camp: Thursday injury updates

By Aaron Mansfield

Several players missed practice today with injuries. Redshirt freshman running back Jordan Johnson (Sweet Home) was on the sidelines with his left arm in a sling.

“Jordan banged up his elbow, so we’re going to have to keep a close eye on that and see how long it’s going to take,” head coach Jeff Quinn said.

Junior wide receiver Cordero Dixon, who is expected to compete for the slot position, was in street clothes. Dixon took a big shot Monday from corner Cortney Lester and was on the ground for about five minutes before walking off under his own power.

Junior right guard Dillon Guy was on crutches, but Quinn said the injury -- a rolled ankle acquired in the team's morning session -- is not too serious and he expects Guy back soon.

“Dillon’s a tough kid, and we’re expecting he’ll be out for a few days and we’ll see what happens,” Quinn said.

Senior wide receiver Fred Lee got hit today and was surrounded by the medical staff for several minutes before he walked off. It appeared he simply had the wind knocked out of him.

“He kind of laughed,” Quinn said. “Freddy’s one of the toughest kids I’ve ever known.”
