Freshman LB Kirby has hard cast on right leg; Golden hopeful he will return midseason

Freshman linebacker Raphael Kirby, injured in Sunday's scrimmage, was seen walking onto campus on crutches Wednesday morning. Kirby had a hard cast from his knee down on his right leg.

UM coach Al Golden said before practice that the injury will not require surgery and that he hopes Kirby will be back mid-season. 

Before getting injured, Kirby had been running on the second team at middle linebacker behind Denzel Perryman.

We'll have more from Wednesday's practice shortly.
