 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Carson Strong has missed back-to-back practices and is expected to miss a few more, but Nevada football coach Jay Norvell isn't overly concerned about his star quarterback's availability for the season opener at Cal just yet. Strong has had three surgeries on his right knee, including two in the last few months. Irritation in that knee led to him being removed from action midway through Monday's practice. He didn't practice Tuesday or Wednesday and isn't expected to practice in the upcoming days. Strong had major surgery on his knee in 2017, which cost him his entire senior season of high school. He had surgery after the 2020 season on the same knee and arthroscopic surgery a few weeks before fall camp started to clear out scar tissue.

"His knee is fine," Norvell said after Wednesday's practice. "He had a surgery and structurally it's all fine. He had a little procedure done before camp just to take a look at it, a scope. That just kind of irritated it a little bit. He has a little swelling, but we're excited. He just had it checked again, and it's fine. He'll be out here in a couple of days." Strong has had his knee drained in recent days, and Norvell said the Wolf Pack won't rush him back considering Strong's experience. Strong, a potential early-round selection in the 2022 draft, is entering this third season as a starter for the Wolf Pack. So while it's not ideal that he missed all of spring camp and the early part of fall camp, Nevada is not sounding alarm bells on his availability when games begin. -
