Bryan Schor Is Apparently Not Done for the Year
On teleconference, JMU’s Mike Houston says too early in the week to tell if Schor will play Saturday, but adds he will be back this year.

Well, that certainly change things. The DNR’s Greg Madia pulled this intriguing comment from Coach Houston yesterday. Look, there’s an awful lot to unwrap in Houston’s comments. We still don’t know exactly what Schor’s injury is or how the doctors are addressing it. If it is indeed a broken collarbone (maybe it’s not?), we’ve got to assume that Houston is just employing a bit of strategy in advance of the Elon game and there’s no way Schor is playing Saturday. Suiting the star QB up with a broken bone to face an Elon team that is frankly terrible, would be ridiculously risky. So let’s assume, Schor is out Saturday. Right now though JMU is in position for a playoff bye, which would give him an extra week to heal up. Could Houston possibly mean that Schor would be ready to go the week after that? Or is he just being optimistic and saying Schor could return late in the playoffs? No way to know for sure, but we’re more optimistic about things than we were a few days ago.
