Aggies coach Hal Mumme said that all indications point to Justine Buries returning on schedule. Buries is expected to be in contact drills in August as the team prepares for it’s opening game against SE Louisiana. Mumme said that he was hesitant to talk about the back’s development but that Buries has told him that, up to this point, he feels good.
Still, there are concerns about Buries. He’s struggled with injuries in the past and knee injuries are particularly tricky. What will happen when he gets banged around for the first time and will he catch up to speed mentally after suffering such a setback? Those will be the biggest concerns. Obviously a healthy Buries would be a nice addition to the team.
Even if he comes back strong I expect him to split a lot of the backfield duties. Tonny Glynn had a strong spring and Mumme expects him to contribute. As will Jeremiah Williams. And, during spring ball, there was a lot of buzz surrounding Randell Bell.
