Limas SweedSenior wide receiver [tag]Limas Sweed[/tag] suffered a possibly serious wrist injury today in practice. Officially called a wrist sprain, Texas athletic trainer Kenny Boyd stated that Sweed was expected to make a full recovery.

Boyd’s comment is uncomfortably vague. It could be a simple sprain and Limas could be back by week one against Arkansas State, or it could be a broken wrist that Limas will completely recover from in 6 – 8 weeks. The wide receiver position is one of the deepest on the team but the loss to Sweed would be a serious blow to the offense. He was reportedly looking really good in practice and I was expecting a huge season out of him.

We’ll have more information on Sweed’s injury as it becomes available.

Update: Suzanne Halliburton of the AAS is reporting the Sweed will be ready by week one against Arkansas State. Unless he’s absolutely 100% than he should sit and get ready for TCU (9/16/2007)

    Sounds like (hopefully) he’ll be back for the TCU game and possibly the opener, but I wouldn’t even wanna chance that. As long as it is only going to be a couple weeks, sit him for the Arky State just to be safe…
