Tough time for Will Poole
I reported in today's editions of The Herald that Poole was limping badly at the end of practice Thursday. Today he didn't practice, but rather watched from a golf cart on the sidelines as he wore a considerable knee brace.
The injury is currently being diagnosed as a sprain but Poole is going to be extremely cautious because it is the same knee that caused him to miss all of last year.
He will see a doctor for a second opinion next week but will not practice until then.
Andre' Goodman, meanwhile, continues to work as a first-team cornerback in the absence of both Poole and starter Travis Daniels.
Goodman himself is trying to erase the memory of two major injuries -- a right knee and twice separated left shoulder -- that has hindered his career.
"It doesn't affect me whether they put me with the first-team or the third team, I go out and compete every day the same way," Goodman said.
Goodman is trying to learn new techniques that he says, "will definitely make me better."
