SMU senior cornerback Sterling Moore is battling turf toe. The returning starter will be more than likely on a limited practice schedule over the next couple of weeks.
“I'm going to try and go during camp, but I will have to just monitor it and and be smart about not doing unnecessary stuff,” said Moore.
This is just another small setback for a position that is already lacking depth.
The Mustangs loss Bryan McCann to graduation and both Keivon Gamble and J.R. McConico were found academically ineligible.
Expected to start opposite of Moore is junior college transfer Richard Crawford, with incoming freshman Chris Parks and walk-on Jeremy Gray battling for playing time.
Moore had a team high 11 pass break ups last season in his first season with the Mustangs. He played in 11 games, starting 10, missing the final two games of the regular season with a knee injury. He was able to recover in time for SMU's Hawaii Bowl win, starting and notching seven stops against Nevada.
