Morrison could be out for year

New Mexico State Aggies head football coach DeWayne Walker said running back Germi Morrison could miss the 2011 season with a right ankle injury.

Morrison, who came to NMSU from Los Angeles Valley College, was expected to help the NMSU offense this season, although has not practiced with the team at all during fall camp.

The Aggie depth chart has Robert Clay as the starter, with Victor Johnson — a 5-foot-11, 223 pound back — listed at No. 2.

Despite Morrison not practicing with the team, the possible loss of him would hurt considering teams spend scholarships on junior college running backs expecting them to contribute right off the bat.
