Expected to miss at least a month if not longer due to injury, Michael Campanaro could be back on the field in time for Wake Forest’s next game.
Tuesday, head coach Jim Grobe hinted there was a realistic possibility the wide receiver will be available for the conference tilt with Clemson.
“The good news is we could get some guys healthy, but the worst part of that is we may not know until we get out there Thursday night,” Grobe said. “I could see us plugging Camp in Thursday night, and if we feel like he’s playing well we say `Oh, hey OK, let’s go.’”
Campanaro suffered a broken hand in the Sept. 29 loss to Duke. Despite missing the past two games, the junior remains far and away the Demon Deacons’ leading receiver with 38 receptions for 429 yards and three touchdowns.
The receiver’s absence has certainly been felt in the passing game as Wake has thrown for just 272 yards the past two games; in the five games in which Campanaro has played, they averaged just over 218 yards per game.
