Enemy Intel: - For Fans of Ohio University Sports
Good news came to the Ohio football team Monday in finding that some of the team’s injuries were not as bad as feared. Defensive tackle Neal Huynh suffered a knee injury and cornerback Omar Leftwich injured his shoulder early in Saturday’s 17-10 victory against Kent State and did not return.

Huynh, who entered the game as the Bobcats’ leading tackler, was on crutches Saturday and it was feared he might have torn his anterior cruciate ligament, but an MRI revealed a less serious injury and Ohio coach Frank Solich said he would be out about four weeks.

It was known that Leftwich’s injury was not as serious, but there is no break and he might even be able play Saturday against Buffalo.
