Warren Norman questionable for opener

Vanderbilt running back/return specialist Warren Norman underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, and team officials said he's questionable for the Sept. 4 opener against Northwestern at Vanderbilt Stadium.

Norman, last season's SEC Freshman of the Year, led the Commodores with 783 yards rushing and returned three kickoffs for touchdowns, tying an SEC single-season record.

Norman's issue with his knee cropped up last week when he complained of swelling. He didn't go through Saturday's scrimmage and had the knee scoped Wednesday.

Vanderbilt has been decimated with injuries at the running back position. Sophomore Zac Stacy suffered a sprained MCL two weeks ago, but he was fully dressed and scheduled to return to practice on a limited basis Wednesday.

Also, redshirt freshman Wesley Tate has been sidelined with a foot injury all preseason, but worked out with trainers on the side earlier this week and was able to do the most he's done.
