Return Still Uncertain For Navy Quarterback

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

The athletic department at Navy says quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada underwent an MRI exam on his injured hamstring yesterday.

Coach Ken Niumatalolo revealed the injury Monday night and would not say when Kaheaku-Enhada might return to practice.

Kaheaku-Enhada was injured in last Saturday's scrimmage.

Senior Jarod Bryant, who recently moved to the No. 1 slotback spot, will take over as No. 1 quarterback.

Navy opens the season at home against Towson on Aug. 30. . . .

The NCAA has cleared West Virginia defensive lineman Pat Liebig to play this season.

Mountaineers Coach Bill Stewart announced Liebig's eligibility had been approved.

Liebig last played in the Gator Bowl after the 2006 season. He sat out 2007, returning to Florida to run his family business and to care for his ailing father. . . .

Two more Florida players will miss the season after tearing knee ligaments. Freshman linebacker Brendan Beal suffered his injury during Monday's practice and sophomore offensive lineman Jim Barrie was injured Saturday.

Tight end Cornelius Ingram and safeties Dorian Munroe and John Curtis also tore ACLs, have had surgery and will miss the season.

"Five ACLs, that's a tough deal," Florida Coach Urban Meyer said. . . .

Pitt starting defensive end Doug Fulmer tore a ligament in his left knee, marking the third year in a row injuries have ended Fulmer's season.
