St. Petersburg Catholic receiver Darin Hess suffered a slight tear to the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound senior-to-be got hurt in the Barons' intrasquad scrimmage Friday night, but tests Wednesday revealed no damage to the meniscus.
Hess said the injury won't require surgery, and after two intense months of rehab, he should be ready to go when practice starts back in August.
Hess, who has received interest from USF, Boston College and Eastern Kentucky, will play running back/slot receiver and defensive end for the Barons.
"With that little span of a minute I'm laying on the field - my whole career flashed in front of me, " Hess said of getting hurt. "I was freaking out."
