Auburn QB commit escapes serious knee injury
VACHERIE, La. — Auburn quarterback commit Lowell Narcisse suffered another scary hit to his right knee Saturday afternoon in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome just seven months removed from a torn ACL.
This time, Narcisse escaped unscathed.
Narcisse, a 4-star prospect and the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation for 2017, suffered a minor injury to the same previously-injured leg, St. James coach Dwain Jenkins said Sunday morning.
“It was a bone bruise on the same leg,” Jenkins told SEC Country. “Preliminary results (from the MRI) show there was no serious damage to his knee.”
Narcisse tore his ACL in St. James’ spring game and missed the entire regular season. However, he returned for the playoffs and led his team all the way to the Class 3A state championship game.
Narcisse suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter while his team was on the wrong end of a blowout. He left the game on crutches and underwent the MRI later Saturday night.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder committed to Auburn over LSU and Clemson back in July. Narcisse is the No. 5 player in the state of Louisiana in next year’s class.
Narcisse tweeted Sunday morning he was feeling OK after sustaining the injury.
