Junior RB Jamar Taylor left the field on a cart during Saturday morning’s practice after injuring his knee during a scrimmage.

The extent of the injury is relatively unknown as of now, but coach Jim Leavitt said it might involve the medial collateral ligament.

Taylor may miss an extended period of time.  The team will know more on Monday.

“(Taylor) is a tremendous asset to this football team.  I don’t want to think negative thoughts,” Leavitt said during USF media day on Saturday.  “We thought going into the season he might be our starting back.”

Taylor rushed for 300 yards and 3 TD’s last year.
