The report earlier this week on the beginning of summer conditioning brought some questions about the status of LB E.J. Savannah, recovering from a broken humerus bone (details here).
Official word from the school is that Savannah remains in a cast and is doing what conditioning he can and is on track for a return in late August. The humerus is the long bone that runs from the shoulder to the elbow, so the cast is pretty bulky and doesn't allow for much movement --- this isn't like just having a cast on a wrist or something that guys often play with. So Savannah can't do any seven-on-seven type stuff, but he can do some cardiovascular work and other conditioning that doesn't involve movement of the arm.
The late August return date is an estimate and the team will know more when camp begins the first week of August. So whether he will be able to return to game action immediately, or will need a few weeks to get back, is still uncertain. But so far, there don't appear to have been any complications or anything, meaning he should be back for the majority of the season.
