Bad news for the Blazers...Nick Coon is out indefinitely after seperating his shoulder during Sunday's Scrimmage. He will be out at least four to six weeks, possibly back in time for the Georgia game, but can redshirt if it's longer. Norris Drinkard is moving over to his position at "Z," moving Willie Parker up to first team in the "X" position formerly held by Drinkard. Sophomore Sylvester Mencer and freshman Mike Jones are behind Drinkard (with freshman running back Rashad Slaughter also moving to WR in that position) while freshman Courtney Smith now moves up to second team behind Edwards. Edwards has had a productive pre-season and Drinkard has plenty of game experience and has been a standout when given the chance, but neither has been as reliable as Coon on deep passes. Hopefully Drinkard and Edwards can step up and several of the freshmen can get in and contribute as well.
