Gresham Injury Troubling

Posted on: September 3, 2009 6:50 pm
 
Consensus top senior tight end Jermaine Gresham won't be suiting up for the Sooners this weekend in their opener against BYU this weekend and head coach Bob Stoops seemed to leave open the possibility that he'll be out for much longer.

According to an AP report, Stoops said today that Gresham and team officials were considering treatment options “that could have a bearing on his return” but didn’t elaborate.

The injury, which insiders have described as a "tweaking of the knee" occurred during Tuesday's practice and kept the All-American out of team drills Wednesday, though he reportedly walked without a limp and was on hand for the drills (but out of uniform).

Until more is known, Gresham, NFLDraftScout.com's 4th overall ranked senior for 2010 draft, remains steadily within the elite prospects in the country. His stock is certainly up in the air with the injury concern, however, as Gresham relies on his eye-popping athleticism at 6-6, 258 pounds to generate separation from defenders.

OU is expecting big things from Gresham this year; perhaps considerably more so than the 66 catches for 950 yards and 14 touchdowns he posted last season. With veteran receivers Juaquin Iglesias and Manuel Johnson now trying to make their marks in the NFL, Gresham was expected to be Sam Bradford's primary target.

Gresham Injury Troubling

Gresham was expected to be Sam Bradford's primary target. 

He still is...just not for the first few weeks. The "tweaking of the Knee"  is a meiscus injury.   Even with surgery, the max time is usually 6 weeks. I dont expect him to be out that long, but they are doing the MRI on Monday and we should all know more after that.
