After practice on Friday, Joker Phillips announced that highly regarded freshman wide receiver Daryl Collins will miss the entire 2011 season with a knee injury. Collins will undergo surgery on Sept. 1 and will be redshirted.

Phillips also announced that Hines was elected the captain of the offense for the season and linebacker Danny Trevathan was elected the defensive captain.
