Mean Green Star RB Struggles with Concussion


North Texas will be at even more of a disadvantage Saturday night against Alabama because their best player, running back Lance Dunbar, is still suffering from the effects of a concussion he had suffered during preseason.

Dunbar, who is a candidate for the Doak Walker Award, has only 36 carries and 105 yards in both of the Mean Green’s losses.

North Texas head coach Dan McCarney said in the Montgomery Advertiser that Dubar is “not yet in his full groove."

“He's not even close yet to what I think he can become. ... He didn't scrimmage at all and missed a lot of practices,” McCarney said.” So he's just getting into game shape now. When you miss significant practice time, scrimmage time, playing time during August, you're not just going to jump out there and start dominating everybody.”

Dunbar rushed last season for over 1500 yards, but if he is not 100 percent against this Alabama defense, he is probably going to be in for another long afternoon which he was probably going to have anyway concussion or not.
