Backup quarterback E.J. Manuel (shoulder), offensive tackles Zebrie Sanders (hip) and Garrett Faircloth (hip), and defensive tackle Moses McCray (elbow) will not participate in spring practice following surgical procedures, the school announced on Wednesday.
Quarterback Christian Ponder (shoulder) and offensive tackle Rhonne Sanderson (ankle) will participate in spring practice on a limited basis initially as they continue to recover, while guard David Spurlock (knee) and center A.J. Ganguzza (elbow) have recovered sufficiently to participate from the start.
Also, offensive tackle Antwane Greenlee is still rehabilitating from knee surgery in the fall and will participate on a limited basis at this point.
