Rick Taylor will miss spring practice due to injury

March 22, 2008

About how he got his injury, Rick Taylor said:
“I tore my pectoral muscle and tendon off the bone while bench-pressing. My arm’s going to be in a sling for six weeks.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Slotback Rick Taylor will have to settle for mental repetitions when Hawaii spring football practice starts March 31. Taylor injured himself lifting weights March 10 and underwent surgery two days later. The sophomore is out for all of the month-long camp.”

About how Rick was going to get a chance to get reps in the spring, Ron Lee said:
“We were looking forward to Rick getting out there. He understands the offense. He’s kind of struggled with injuries so far in his career. He’s had hamstring and groin, and shoulder problems, too. We’re going to get him involved in practice, keep him busy.” (HSB)

About how he’s looking forward to the 15 practice sessions even though he can’t suit up, Rick said:
“I’m down, but I’m hopeful. I want to help out the younger guys in learning the offense.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “The competition is open, Lee said. But veterans Greg Salas, Mike Washington, Aaron Bain and Malcolm Lane will get the first look at replacing Jason Rivers, Davone Bess, Ryan Grice-Mullins and C.J. Hawthorne.”
