Right as former JUCO all-american Terry Juniel returned to the practice field after battling a foot injury throughout camp, Sean Kugler announced on his weekly radio show Wednesday that Juniel broke his foot and is out for the year.
Juniel lead the NJCAA in punt return yards, and had four returns for touchdowns last season, adding 407 reeving and three receiving touchdowns as well in his lone season at Glendale Community College.
The sophomore was cleared late last week from his initial foot injury giving Sean Kugler hope he could debut the electric athlete Saturday. He will be red shirted and be a sophomore next season according to Kugler.
Jaquan White will now take over at punt returner, while Warren Redix will move up behind White at punt returner and at slot receiver.
