Sun Devils Cornerback Devan Spann Likely Lost For Season, Per Dennis Erickson

The Arizona State University Sun Devils had another tough break today when Head Coach Dennis Erickson announced that redshirt freshman cornerback Devan Spann has likely been lost for the season due to a shoulder injury he sustained in practice Monday. This is the third time this month that Spann has left practice with a shoulder problem, and the lingering nature of this injury likely means surgery will be required.

Spann was second on Arizona State's depth chart behind Osahon Irabor for one of the cornerback spots and likely fourth overall on the depth chart at cornerback. This leaves the Sun Devils with three solid cornerbacks and freshman Rashad Wadoodas pointed out by Doug Haller. Depth there is now an issue. 

On his twitter account, Devan Spann conceded, "Man all it takes is one play for something like this to happen." As pointed out earlier here, Spann had redshirted last year and has worked hard over the offseason, earning the Hard Hat award for his effort during ASU's offseason strength and conditioning.

The Sun Devils have had some issues with injuries early this season, with cornerback Omar Bolden, linebacker Brandon Magee and wide receiver T.J. Simpson all going down with different ailments.
