Fall Practice Report 8/24

When given the nature of football, injuries are bound to happen. Every year head coach Bronco Mendenhall attempts to limit the amount of injuries, but at the end of the day there's little one can do to prevent them. Monday's practice session saw two of the team's biggest contributors go down during drills.

Monday's practice session was marred by injuries sustained by running back Harvey Unga and safety Scott Johnson. Unga pulled up a bit lame after getting some work in live drills, while Johnson suffered an apparent concussion after colliding with Manase Tonga on a running play.

Coach Mendenhall touched on both injuries and other issues following Monday's practice.
