Before I get into the practice report, I have a significant injury to report from today's practice.

USF starting DT Cory Grissom injured his right ankle during a non-contact drill and was carted off this morning.

The Bulls were practicing in just shorts and helmets and were working on non-contact fumble recovery drills when Grissom went to pick up a fumble and went down by the endz one. He was immediately attended to by trainers and then was carted off the field to go get X-rays and an MRI.

Later it was revealed that Grissom suffered a fibula fracture in his right ankle during Monday's practice. He is scheduled to have surgery on Thursday. Currently, there isn't a timetable for when he might return.
