During the first dual of the season, junior All-American Boo Lewallen went down with a shoulder injury against South Dakota State. It wasn’t pretty and on the surface it seemed like it could be season-ending. But he will be back, and it could be as soon as this weekend.
John Smith made some comments about him during the media availability on Tuesday.
“Boo Lewallen, I think he’s ready to go, but how strong is he? Could he withstand another blow to that shoulder,” Smith said.
He later went on to say that “we could see Boo Lewallen, but I’m sure that’s the only one we’ll see this weekend.”
When I tweeted the interview with Smith, Boo replied with this.

I was unable to confirm an exact return date for Lewallen, but sources indicate that it will be “very soon.” I wouldn’t be shocked to see him on Sunday.
