Friday's Daily Briefing: Smith may back on sidelines for Titans
Reports out of Tennessee are that Titans quarterback Kerry Collins is healing quickly and could be back in the starting lineup this Sunday.
That means former FAU QB Rusty Smith will go back to being a reserve, but all is not lost. Being the backup to a player like Collins who is on the mend means Smith has a chance to see action this week against Jacksonville, the team he grew up rooting for.
And, no matter what happens to Smith down the road, he will always be able to say he started a game in the NFL and created some excitement during a low time for the FAU football program.
I found this clip
of former FAU player Jason Pugh who is now the weekend sports anchor for WPTC-Ch. 5, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, talking about Smith’s impact. I think you’ll enjoy it and it begs the question. Are these two, the two most succesful and well-known former Owls?
