John Brown has surgery; Mon Williams may change positions

September

Redshirt freshman DT John Brown underwent surgery Tuesday morning to repair a broken bone in his hand/wrist. 

WILLIAMS CHANGING  POSITIONS?

Redshirt sophomore Mon Williams could be making the change from RB to LB, coach Urban Meyer said. Williams was listed as the No. 16 national running back prospect by Scout.com out of Horn High in Texas, and played in eight games his freshman season. But last year, he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during spring practice and took a redshirt year.

"He's working a little bit on defense right now, but we haven't made that decision,'' Meyer said. "He asked, and coach (Charlie) Strong asked and he's taking a peek at him at linebacker. It's not a for sure change.''

DUNLAP NOT UP TO PAR

DE Carlos Dunlap has struggled to live up to the expectations the coaches had for him coming out of spring practice.

"He's not answered the bell like we thought,'' Meyer said. "He's not playing horrible, but he's not that Jarvis Moss-type guy we thought he was going to be. He's still young, he needs to learn to cut it loose a little bit better. He's a young player and at times he acts like it. When he doesn't, he's a tremendous player.''
