Freshman wide receiver Michaelee Harris tore his posterior cruciate ligament in a non-contact drill during practice Monday afternoon.
The team didn’t provide a timetable for recovery. A complete tear of the PCL can require season-ending surgery, while partial tears can typically be rehabbed in a couple of months. The team was fearing the worst when the injury happened, so this is better than a blown-out ACL.
“If he’s not able to play he will redshirt, but I don’t know the time frame of when he’ll be back,” U of L coach Charlie Strong said.
Harris was the Cardinals’ top-rated offensive recruit in the class of 2010. The Miami product was pushing for playing time in a receiving corps that’s lacking in game breakers. I think there is a strong possibility we will see Harris take a red-shirt this year.<
