Unfortunately, it sounds like Grayes could miss a portion of his senior season due to an injury. According to Bill Kurelic with Bucknuts, Grayes injured his elbow in a scrimmage.
Grayes confirmed to Kurelic that the injury is a dislocated elbow and that he will be out of competition until at least Week 8:
“A dislocated elbow,” Grayes told Bucknuts. “I won’t be back till week eight.”
That is not something that is likely to slow Grayes down in the future, but it is still tough to see a young athlete miss time with such an injury. Hopefully, he is able to return to full health quickly.
According to the industry-generated composite rankings, Grayes is the 99th best prospect in the country and the No. 13 WR nationally for the cycle.
