Salem. (shot at 54:22 to 54:30) He's
too busy talking on his cell phone to

2006 Season Kevin Ogletree injured his knee
in Practice this past Friday, and today
Head Coach Al Groh announced during his
teleconference that the results of the
MRI exam indicate that Ogletree has a

torn ACL and is likely out for the
entire upcoming season.

Surgery has not been scheduled as
of yet.

Ogletree had 52 receptions for
5-hundred and 82 yards and 4 Touchdowns
last season.

His loss means the Cavaliers have
only 2 other Wide Outs that actually
have a reception in a game currently on
their Spring Roster.
