Manaia Brown to have shoulder scoped tomorrow A.M.

Sophomore defensive tackle <b>Manaia Brown</b> has a 6 a.m. appointment tomorrow to have his ailing shoulder scoped and repaired. He is expected to be out for 10 -14 days, according to BYU coach <b>Gary Crowton</b>.

Manaia Brown transferred from Nebraska early last year and was redshirted last season.

During the probe of the shoulder before injecting the shot, doctor's found a separation and determined that they could fix it with surgery.

BYU head coach Gary Crowton said, "There's a little separation there and they feel they can operate on that and get it fixed. He'll be out about 10 days and two weeks at the most. Hopefully this will fix his shoulder once and for all."

Meanwhile, Aaron Francisco, BYU's defensive MVP from last year, will resume full contact practice drills tomorrow after undergoing foot surgery just over three weeks ago.

Other recovering Cougars include tight end Justin Jory, who recently had surgery on a broken hand. He is expected to return in about 10 days; former quarterback Lance Pendleton, is also expected to return in 10 days from having his knee scoped.

Wide receiver Cody Fonnesbeck is the only confirmed season casualty with a torn ACL.
