Buffaloes coach Dan Hawkins and other team officials had no update on McKnight's status, but quarterback Tyler Hansen said after practice that McKnight told him the injury was a broken fibula that would keep him out for the remainder of the spring. Team trainer Miguel Rueda told reporters on Thursday there was nothing peculiar in McKnight's MRI, and he would be further evaluated on Friday morning. Before the injury, McKnight had three catches for 31 yards and a 14-yard score.
As much as we don't need any of our Buffaloes going down this spring, if there was one guy with the experience to sit out the spring and not miss a beat, it would be McKnight. This may even allow our younger receivers to get some more reps and hopefully continue to develop with Hansen (fine, or Hawkins). Either way, it hurts to to see Scotty go down and we wish him a quick and full recovery.
