Latest John Rhys Plumlee Injury Update
JRP left the first half of UCF’s victory over USF after pulling up during a touchdown run. Even if Plumlee isn’t fully healthy, head coach Gus Malzahn and Plumlee himself repeated that he practiced this week and could be able to play on Saturday.
Following the play where Plumlee most likely suffered the harm are remarks from this week about the condition of the starting quarterback:
While Mikey Keene, the backup, is very talented and has led two game-winning touchdowns against South Florida and Cincinnati, the squad is better prepared to target the Tulane defense’s weak spot with Plumlee on the field. Tulane is not among the top 100 in EPA/Rush this season.
The Knights will need Plumlee, who was a one-man show against the Green Wave in their previous meeting, to win the AAC championship. Follow Newswatchlist.com for more information. You can also leave your thoughts in the comment section, and don’t forget to bookmark our website.
