Wake Forest WR Donavon Greene to Miss 3-5 Months with Knee Injury

Not a great way to start the season

Wake Forest wide receiver Donavon Greene will miss 3-5 months with a knee injury he sustained on the first day of fall camp, Wake Forest has announced.

Greene, a redshirt junior, finished the 2022 season with 37 receptions for 642 yards and 6 touchdowns and was likely poised to have a big year as the number one target this season. Unfortunately, the 3–5-month timetable makes it pretty likely that Greene will miss the entire season for the second time in his Wake Forest career (2021). While the Deacs have plenty of depth at the wide receiver position, losing a speedy deep threat like Greene—who led the Deacs in yard per reception last season—is definitely a tough blow for Wake Forest.

Injuries are always the worst part of sports, but to have a player go down before the season even begins because of an injury on literally the first day of practice may be the worst of the worst. Especially when it happens to someone who should have had a big season and has already had to go through missing the whole season just a couple of years ago. Here’s hoping Greene makes a full recovery and can get back to play football as soon as possible.

Get well soon Donavon!
