Injury Bug Bites UCF
A.J. Guyton apparently hurt his right knee during workouts prior to spring practice and is currently walking around with a brace and a crutch.
The Knights, who are losing both their starting quarterback and running back from last season's Conference USA championship team, were relying on filling in some gaping holes in their offense this spring, but the injuries to both players will likely stall UCF's attempt to figure out its offensive identity, at least until the summer.
Last season, both players had large roles with the team and figure to be intricate members this upcoming season. Phillip Smith was the second leading rusher on the roster behind Kevin Smith, who led the nation in rushing. As a freshman, Guyton accumulated 253 receiving yards in just seven games and was going to be a key target for whoever won the quarterback battle.
Although the injuries may or may not be serious (we will update you as soon as we ascertain the information,) the Knights were certainly relying on both players to be key cogs in the offense for the 2008 season, and this setback isn't what UCF needs while trying to determine who will replace its offensive standouts from last year.
