Sophomore linebacker Nigel Harris was held out of Saturday’s game against East Carolina, and coach Willie Taggart announced Monday that it was due to an ankle injury.
“Nigel had an ankle injury in practice and we tried to see if it would hold up, and on Saturday, he didn’t feel comfortable playing on it, so we didn’t play him,” coach Willie Taggart said.
Senior cornerback Chris Dunkley and senior linebacker Reshard Cliett both left Saturday’s game with shoulder injuries, but their statuses have yet to be updated.
“Both of them have a shoulder injury and we’re getting the MRI on them (Monday), so we’ll know something on them later,” Taggart said.
