Sean Kugler said on his weekly radio show Wednesday evening that quarterback Zack Greenlee “will probably miss one to two weeks” and is expected back by the time conference play starts later this month against Southern Miss.
Kugler revealed on Wednesday that Greenlee had a slight tear in his MCL, a separated shoulder, and also broke a finger in the Miners opening season win against NMSU last Saturday.
Without Greenlee, Kugler mentioned that both Kavika Johnson and Ryan Metz would get opportunities with Greenlee out. Johnson played quarterback and wide receiver, while Metz lined up at wide receiver once in the Miners’ wildcat formation in the season opener.
The El Paso Times reported that Johnson took most of the first team reps in practice on Monday and Tuesday.
