UCF's Harvey to miss spring with knee injury

Central Florida running back Brynn Harvey suffered a knee injury and will miss the rest of spring practice, the university announced through its practice report Monday.

Harvey was injured during the first play of Saturday’s scrimmage and will require surgery. The date of the surgery is not yet known.

The university is hopeful that Harvey will be back by fall camp in August.

Harvey’s injury further depletes the running back corps that took a hit this weekend when coach George O’Leary announced he was suspending nine players indefinitely for missing class. Second-string running back Jonathan Davis was among the group that included junior wide receivers Kamar Aiken and A.J. Guyton, freshman wide receiver Nico Flores and freshman defensive back A.J. Bouye.

Brandon Davis, Kerlon Williams and Brendan Kelly are the remaining players available to split reps during spring practice.
