Brown speaks on injuries entering spring practice

Neal Brown spoke to the media on Tuesday after the first day of spring practice and gave updates on injuries within the team.

One player he mentioned was sophomore safety Saint McLeod, who was stabbed on High Street in early March.

“He’ll be out for the Spring,” Brown said. “I can’t come up here and tell you ‘Hey he’s going to be out four to six weeks or three.’ I don’t really know. It’s not an injury that our people are dealing with very often.”

Brown also mentioned that McLeod is in good spirits and recovering.

Brown also spoke on junior tight end Mike O’Laughlin’s status. O’laughlin suffered a season-ending knee injury against TCU last season.

“It’s a repeat injury, so that’s significant,” Brown said. He’s gone through the rehab before so that’s a positive so he knows. He’s more mature now too. I would confidently say he’s ahead of schedule and we expect him to be available and play when we kick that thing off 163 days from today.”

Other notable injuries for the Mountaineers are senior linebacker Exree Loe (knee) and sophomore defensive tackle Edward Vesterinen.
