Seton Hall Point Guard Cosby Sidelined With Knee Injury
Seton Hall sophomore point guard Aaron Cosby is expected to be sidelined “three to four weeks” with a sprained PCL, Northfield Mount Hermon coach John Carroll confirmed Monday to SNY.tv.
“Depending on his rehab, he’s being told three to four weeks,” said Carroll, Cosby’s high school coach. “They told him it might be a little longer than that. He’s much stronger than they thought. They’re saying he could be back by the season opener if not the early season.”
Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard told SNY.tv: “Up to four weeks, could be two, it could be four. Just depends on how he heals.”
The Pirates open the season Nov. 9 against UMKC.
Carroll said he got a voicemail about the injury Friday or Saturday and is not certain when it occurred.
Cosby, who averaged 7.9 points and 2.0 rebounds as a freshman, is due to take over the point guard duties for Seton Hall this year after Texas transfer Sterling Gibbs was not given a hardship waiver to play immediately.
“This could have a silver lining to it,” Carroll said. “He hasn’t taken a rest since April of his senior year. He’s been going after it. He could have fresh legs.”
