Charles Scott update

There is a loud sigh of relief that can be heard all over the state of Louisiana.

LSU commitment Charles Scott left Jonesboro-Hodge's game this past
Friday with a knee injury and early speculation from some media outlets
was that he suffered a major injury.

Early Saturday morning, the four-star running back went to get a
professional opinion and the prognosis is in.

"They did a quick scope and all I did was tear some cartilage or it
might have been my meniscus," Scott told Tiger Rag. "I really don't
know but I do know it's fixed."

Before Scott went down with the minor injury he ripped through the
Sterlington defense to the tune of 281 yards and five touchdowns on
only 14 carries. He said that brought his rushing total on the year to
somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,500 to 1,600 yards.

Scott, who is's 13th ranked running back in the country, said
the injury occurred when he ran a flare route and the quarterback threw
the pass a little high. He jumped up to make the grab and when he
landed on his right knee it locked up.

Scott said he heard the knee pop and the sound alone sent chills up his

"That sound scared me to death," said Scott. "I got up and tried to
walk and my coach was asking if I had a cramp or something. I told him no
coach it's not a cramp. I told him there was something wrong. The
trainer came over and put a brace on it and said to see if I can go
back in and I couldn't really put any pressure on it. Then they said to sit
down and we would check it out tomorrow."

As a precaution only, Scott is going to sit out this week to give the
knee a break and then he will be ready to go the following week for
round one of the state playoffs.

He said he does not expect to have any problems once he gets back on
the field and that LSU fans can rest easy.

"I'm walking around and it doesn't even hurt or anything," he said. "It's going to be fine."
