Media Day in Storrs

Some early notes from media day, Will update later sfter speaking with players.
  • Edsall said Marcus Campbell was injured pursuing a play in practice. Leon Kinnard was at quarterback and made a sharp cut. Campbell planted his foot to cut, and his ACL gave out. He'll have surgery Friday. Trevardo Williams will start opposite Jesse Joseph. A.J. Portee and Teddy Jennings move into backup roles.
  • Right now, Mike Lang is the starting free safety. Harris Agbor is starting at strong safety. Jerome Junior, expected to be the starter at strong safety, still isn't ready after suffering a head injury last week, and Kijuan Dabney got his bell rung, and out for the moment.
  • Edsall says he has some things in mind at this point for the tailback slot, but will wait to make any decisions, specifically on the back up to Jordan Todman. Robbie Frey and Meme Wylie seem to be in the running along with D.J. Shoemate. Lyle McCombs is also looking strong, Edsall said.
  • Don't expect a lot of true freshman to be involved, Edsall said. Only three played last season, so that's not unexpected.
  • Adam Mueller, a freshman from Park Ridge, Ill., is the backup long snapper behind Derek Chard.
