Hinds met with head coach Mike Sanford for the first time since leaving the team's fall camp in Ely on Aug. 12 with a 50-percent tear of his right ACL.
"He did come back to school," UNLV coach Mike Sanford said. "He's going to school."
Monday marked the first day of classes for the fall semester at UNLV and some wondered if the disheartened Hinds would show up following yet another injury setback.
"He is not going to meet with us or practice with us for a period of time," Sanford said. "He's going to go a serious rehab program for his knee and try and strengthen it back up. After three weeks we are going to reassess the situation. I have no idea where the thing is going to go."
So how was Hinds' mental state?
"I think he's up in the air a little bit about what his future is," Sanford said. "He doesn't know and we don't know what is going to happen."
Sanford took it a positive that Hinds showed up on Monday to start class, however.
"Yeah it is," Sanford said. "He was here and he went to all his classes today. That's good."
