Navy loses potential starter to a broken jaw

Navy’s perimeter depth took another hit this week as Michael Brown broke his jaw in practice and will miss the next month.

According to the Capital Gazette, Brown dove for a loose ball in practice and collided with a teammate. He suffered the injury when his face hit the floor.

Brown averaged 10.2 minutes as a freshman last season and was expected to slide into this starting lineup this year due to a number of injuries that have hit the Midshipmen. Junior Kendall Knorr still isn’t practicing due to a knee problem while Tim Abruzzo tore his ACL earlier this preseason.

Navy went 9-21 last season.
