Good News on the Injury Front

CUTigers.com has the latest on the Tigers' injury situation, including updates on DE Vontrell Jamison and WR Michael Collins.

CUTigers.com spoke with Vontrell Jamison and Michael Collins today after the first practice of two-a-days this morning, and there is good news to report.

It appears as though both players could be back on the field, much sooner than expected.

Jamison, who broke his left arm, will have a rod inserted in that broken arm on Friday.

He's expected to miss two weeks, but should be ready to go by the season opener against Wake Forest.

"I'll have to wear a cast on it for the first couple of games," Jamison said.

Jamison said that he broke it on the last play in practice yesterday in the goal line scrimmage.

"Somebody fell on it on the last play," said Jamison. "I think it was Thomas Hunter, but I don't know. It was a tight end. I knew something was wrong when I heard it crack."

Meanwhile reserve wide receiver Michael Collins, who has a torn quad, was off crutches today and walking around.

"It feels better today, and I'm off crutches so that's a good sign," said Collins. "Hopefully I won't be out long."
