The first big injury of the preseason has happened in an off the field accident. Linebacker Akeem Dent had toe surgery this morning. Reports of how Dent was injured have not been reported.
Dent emerged from Spring practice as the No. 1 Strong Side Inside Linebacker. This injury is expected to keep him off the field for probably the entire preseason . Sophomore Michael Gilliard is No. 2 on the depth chart behind Dent and will seemingly step up into the starting spot.
