An injury suffered earlier in the week is not expected to sideline a potentially key piece of Miami’s offense the entire season, head coach Al Golden said Friday.
During a scrimmage Wednesday, Rashawn Scott went down with what was described as a clavicle or shoulder injury. The initial fear was that Scott could be out for the entire 2014 season.
Fortunately for the Hurricanes, that doesn’t appear to be the case.
“It’s not a season-ending deal,” Golden said. “It’s a little bit of an exotic injury, something that’s not customary. But he’s doing good. He’ll keep his conditioning up so he can return to action quickly.”
Just how long Scott will be sidelined, however, is unknown.
Scott, a three-star member of The U’s 2011 recruiting class, missed significant time last season with a shoulder injury. In 2012, and despite an indefinite suspension that cost him the last three games of the season, Scott was second on the team in receptions (35) and receiving yards (512).
During the first couple of weeks of summer camp this year, Scott had been working almost exclusively with the first-team offense.
