Should have sat out rather than risk injury on meaningless post season games.

But Fambrough reported he had 98 yards on 17 carries. Course, Fambrough is clueless. This Guly will be another all SEC back soon in purple and gold.

Anywhere from the knee down. I Hate to hear this for him. Leg injuries don’t always heal, an injury now would cripple his scholarship chances, and injuries now may mean a further injury later in career. T&P

Jesus Golden Boy calm the Fuk it was an injury to the leg it happens in football I’ve heard. It’s not like they called in the choppers to rush him to the hospital to save his leg.
