RB Noah Cain to miss rest of season

James Franklin announced this afternoon that RB Noah Cain will miss the rest of the season after suffering an injury in the opener Saturday at Indiana.

Cain started at running back but was injured on the first series and did not return.

Cain took over the starting role after Journey Brown was ruled out with a medical issue. Brown might have to miss the entire season.

“Love Noah, so much respect for Noah,” Franklin said. “He really had an unbelievable offseason and worked really hard for this opportunity.

”So, we met with Noah ahead of time and felt like this was the appropriate thing to do.”

Sophomore Devyn Ford and freshmen Caziah Holmes and Keyvone Lee will all play running back going forward.

“Will be similar to what we did on Saturday,” Friday said. “We played all three of those backs on Saturday. Devyn got the majority of the carries but, you know, Keyvone and Caziah have played as well as true freshmen.”

“Obviously, you know our circumstances have changed, you know, and everybody’s dealing with this to a degree. You know, we came into the season with our running back room, you know, considered maybe one of the strongest running backs (in the nation). And now, at least at this time we’ve lost Journey Brown and Noah.”
