Navy's Dobbs to miss Wake Forest game

Posted by ESPN.com’s Graham Watson

Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs will not play this weekend against Wake Forest.

Several published reports noted that Dobbs did not practice on Thursday, meaning sophomore backup Kriss Proctor will make his first career start.

Dobbs has not practiced all week after aggravating a cracked knee against SMU last weekend. Dobbs, a junior, told local media that he thought he might have injured the knee while a senior in high school.

Dobbs finished the game, but has been under medical care since. He likely cannot worsen his injury, but might need surgery to repair it.

Dobbs spent Tuesday in a knee brace and after undergoing an MRI, he was placed in a soft cast.

Proctor played most of the second half of the 63-14 win over Rice and rushed for 82 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries.
