Duane Coleman Comments
Starting running back Duane Coleman broke his foot today in a one-on-one drill during the firt practice in pads of the 2004 season.

When asked about injury, Coleman said, "I'm just frustrated right now."

"Right when it happened I told coach (Burns) that it was broke and he didn't want to believe me. He was like, 'Ah it ain't broke, you ain't no doctor.' So I tried to go back in and I wasn't successful, so I came out and went to the side."

Coleman had 615 yards rushing to lead the team last year, and he also had 34 catches for 309 yards receiving.

Michael Collins Comments
Michael Collins, one of the most consistent wide receivers of spring practice, tore his quad muscle today.

"I was just running a simple speed out and I guess I just cut the wrong way," said Collins.

"When it happened I felt a little pain, but I kept on pushing through. I didn't think it was as bad as a tear in my muscle. It came at a bad time when a lot of receivers are going down."

"I honestly don't know how long I'm going to be out. It's touch-and-go right now. Hopefully I'll be back as soon as possible," Collins added.

Collins had been one of the most consistent wide outs in the eyes of the coaching staff through the first three practices. Top Stories
