Now that he's come to terms with his season-ending shoulder blade and collarbone injuries, senior cornerback Kevin Barnes looked relatively upbeat yesterday.
Injured in the Wake Forest game on Oct. 18, Barnes is still with the team as a friend and supporter. He's hoping to play in the NFL.
He had surgery recently at Washington Hospital Center. A pin was placed in his collarbone, and his shoulder was secured into place.
"The way [the doctor] did it, I should never really have problems ever again," Barnes said. "Depending on how hard I push himself will determine whether I play in the Senior Bowl," he said, referring to the pre-draft game in January.
