It's always hard seeing high school kids get injured. Unfortunately this week, injuries took center stage. It all started last week when 5-star defensive end target CeCe Jefferson left the game with an apparent shoulder injury. News came out earlier this week that as a result of the injury, Jefferson would have season ending surgery.
Then news broke that FSU commit George Campbell would be held out of his game with concussion-like symptoms. But the biggest news of the night was that 5-star defensive end Josh Sweat had to be carted off the field. Word is that it is a knee injury and that there was a possible dislocation, but no breaks. New on the injury can be found here. We'll do our best to bring you any updates on these players.
