Injuries are a part of football, especially once teams start two-a-day practices in full pads.
At James Madison, almost a dozen players stood and watched Monday afternoon's practice, the Dukes' second of the day, from the sideline.
The most noteworthy was All-American cornerback/kick returner Scotty McGee. Coach Mickey Matthews said McGee was day-to-day because of a groin injury.
Chase Williams was also sidelined Monday. The redshirt freshman has a shoulder injury, Matthews said, which will probably keep him out of practice all week.
Williams said he suffered the injury in practice on Friday. He's competing with converted safety Pat Williams for the Dukes' starting linebacker job alongside sophomore Jamie Veney.
