Spring practice resumes

Written by Jenn Menendez on .

Spring practice resumed Tuesday after spring break, and three key bits of news were revealed by Coach Dana Holgorsen after practice,

1. Pat Eger, the leading candidate to succeed Joe Madsen at center, has injured his ankle again. Holgorsen said this was likely the same ankle he had surgery on after the Pinstripe Bowl.

Holgorsen: “Our doctors don’t know yet. It just happened. I do believe that it is the same ankle, which he had his ankle cleaned up and was back in six weeks. Hopefully it is not any worse than that.”

2. Freshman offensive lineman Adam Pankey suffered an ACL tear and is likely not ready until at least October. This one could hurt potentially. The staff was really high on him as early as last year.

Holgorsen: “We did have one injury that I will report, which is a surgery situation with Adam Pankey. It is incredibly disappointing to see coming off his redshirt year. He has so much upside. He was showing more improvement than any other offensive lineman that we had. He is a big 6-foot-5, 315-pound guy that was moving phenomenally. He had knee surgery for his ACL, so he will be out until they release him in September or October. That is going to cut into his redshirt freshman year."

3.Defensive lineman Korey Harris has been suspended indefinitely.
