This is a tough break becuase Gray is a guy that is a true cover corner. Something the Irish need desperately. He is not big, but during the AAA game, he had no trouble covering some of the best WR's in the country. I am sure he will continue to workout and come full strength when Summer/Fall Practice begins.
He is young and the bone will heal. The break is non-displaced, which means that it is broken, but not seperated, Like The Picture Above. Although Weis spoke today about a 4-6 week period, Non-displaced forearm fractures usually require a Long arm cast with elbow at 90 degrees for 8-12 weeks. Let's hope for the best and Gary can learn while watching and listening. Not a bad thing for a freshman at Notre Dame.
In another move, Munir Prince, was moved to corner. The two moves are related, but Coach Weis said that Munir asked for an opportunity to play corner, because of the depth in the offensive backfield. He has previous experience. In high school as a junior in East St. Louis, MO, Prince was an all-state selection at cornerback. The timing for the move was just right. He is faster than most on the team, except for maybe Armando Allen. Prince's forty time is not his forte, but he has recorded a 10.4 in the 100 and 21.0 in the 200. Both times are Qualifying AAU times. Weis felt that the Cornerback position was becoming a little light and Prince asked for the change to help the team in any way he could.
