Exclamation UAB’s Brontae Harris suffers severe foot injury
https://www.al.com/uab/2019/08/uabs-bron...njury.html

I saw him today in a black cast using a wheeled one-leg cart (don't know what you call those things) crossing in front of me from the football building as I was driving home. I hoped it wasn't him.

Man, that sucks. He’s a lockdown corner and a vocal leader on D.

Going to miss him.

Oh no the season is over, hopefully we still get 7 wins.

Ok, injuries are apart of the game, still fine at that spot. Will be great watching Brontae play in 2020.

I hope that his medical care will make him whole again so that he will thrive and be pain free in the years to come.

Joke about it if you want, but this is a devastating injury for the team. This is why NFL teams pay a premium for a shutdown corner; it changes your defense completely. I know injuries are a part of the game, and that we have some good athletes back there, so someone will step up--that's the way it always works. But to suggest that it won't affect our season is crazy. Any team that loses arguably its best player one week into camp will definitely feel it.

This is college, I wouldn’t say he’s shutdown. The two closest that I would say was shut/lockdown was Coleman and D. Will. Wouldn’t say he’s the best player. We have 6 three star guys at the same spot.

Also per 3 man front, he may can comeback mid season without surgery. If he and his family goes surgery now then he’s likely out for the season. Makes me think it could be turf toe instead of Achilles

Can you describe what "Turf Toe" is??

Turf toe is a sprain in the first joint of your big toe. Makes it very painful to push off your foot and is very hard to immobilize so that it can heal.

That said, going down in a clump without contact isn’t something that happens with a toe.

RE: UAB’s Brontae Harris suffers severe foot injury
If this happened last year, I would not be concerned. Our pass rush made the defense great. I have no idea how good the pass rush will be, so this could be a major issue.

I wonder if Clark wanted the injury to get out. He's usually very secretive with this information.

Young and talented guys at the corner...CD,Starling,Miller maybe Senior AJ Brooks gets it going...if he's healthy move Pollock back to defense...
Coach Clark will handle it ...Go Blazers

Any final word on what the injury was? If he had surgery I’m guessing it was an Achilles injury

So now TD Marshall is moved to cornerback to try to make up for the loss of Harris. I guess we are deeper at WR than we are at CB, so we had the extra body. Hope he turns out to be a good one.

The CB room will be crowded with talent next year if all return. Brooks is the only senior among those likely to be in the rotation.
