Does anyone have any information on Minnifield's status going forward into the draft?? He didn't play in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl and there are mixed reports on the severity of his injury:
Minnifield did not have an injury of any consequence during the regular season and did not appear to be hobbling as he mingled with fans at the team headquarters at the Marriott Marquis.
An eyewitness said Minnifield was telling people he would play.
UVA senior Chase Minnifield will miss the Cavaliers bowl game against Auburn Saturday night due to an injury.
The cornerback will have knee surgery next week, and will not play in the Chick-fil-A Bowl game in Atlanta against the Tigers.
Seems like knee-jerk reporting, but I can't find any other recent information verifying one way or the other. Does anyone have any input?? If he's injured, be it major (i.e. requiring surgery) or minor, how does it impact his draft status??
