News:Michael Campanaro will likely sit out spring practice while recovering from ankle surgery, according to ESPN.com.
Analysis: "Camp(anaro) is going to have some ankle surgery on a bone chip floating around so we're going to miss him," said offensive coordinator Steed Lobotzke. It doesn't sound like anything serious, so there's no reason to downgrade Camampanaro this far away from draft day.
News:Michael Campanaro was none too pleased with the way his junior season ended, according to the Winston-Salem Jounral.
Analysis: "I think it's just the whole attitude around the program. I was looking around tonight and you know the game's on one end and I see a bunch of guys huddled up around the heater on the other end. That's just a losing attitude," offered Michael Campanaro. The junior closed his season with more catches (79) and touchdowns (six) than a season ago despite missing two contests. He'll return for 2013 and be amongst the most reliable in the ACC.
News:Michael Campanaro caught just five passes for 14 yards Saturday at North Carolina State, but threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Terence Davis.
Analysis:Michael Campanaro was coming off a huge 16 catch, 123 yard, three touchdown game against Boston College, and was clearly the focal point of the Wolfpack defense. He continues to find different ways to please his owners, but is likely to struggle again in Week 12 at Notre Dame.
News:Michael Campanaro caught six passes for 52 yards Thursday against Clemson.
Analysis: A disappointing line against a team without it's top two cornerbacks, but owners have to be happy to see Michael Campanaro back on the field.
News:Michael Campanaro (hand) will play against Clemson on Thursday, the Greensboro News-Record reports.
Analysis: His role has yet to be specified, but we can't fault Michael Campanaro's owners for starting the standout receiver. Wake will be playing from behind, and Campanaro is a gamer.
News:Michael Campanaro (hand) could be available for Thursday's game at Clemson, according to the school's Twitter feed.
Analysis: "There's a chance we'll have him Thursday," offered head coach Jim Grobe. The mid-week kickoff is going to put Michael Campanaro in a bind, but for now continue to monitor his progress.
News:Michael Campanaro (hand) said on Twitter that he won't need surgery and will return for the team's Nov. 3 game against Boston College at the latest.
Analysis: He said there's a chance that he'll play against Clemson on Oct. 25, and we definitely won't rule it out. Still, his owners should plan on the Nov. 3 date as the more realistic one.
News:Michael Campanaro (broken hand) has no timetable for his return, and is considered out indefinitely according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Analysis: Officially, nothing will be known on Michael Campanaro for at least a few weeks. Camapanaro himself tweeted a timetable of four weeks, but he'll be back in three, but the extent of the injury, and the treatment isn't yet known. Owners should be prepared to be without Campanaro until Halloween.
News: Multiple sources, including the Wilmington Star-News are reporting Michael Campanaro has suffered a broken hand.
Analysis: He won't return today, and a timetable for the nation's leader in receptions is to be determined. Michael Campanaro is arguably irreplaceable in the Wake offense, and in owners lineups. Sherman Ragland figures to see time in Campanaro's spot, while Terrence Davis should also see increased looks.
News:Michael Campanaro exited Saturday's game against Duke, and is having his hand x-rayed in the locker room, notes Laura Keeley of the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: No word on the severity of the injury, but x-rays aren't a good thing. Owners should be a little nervous.
News: Camapanaro caught 12 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against Army, while also rushing five times for 31 yards and a score.
Analysis: It was a monster game from Camapanaro, and no other Deacon receiver had more than one catch.
News:Michael Campanaro had just two catches for eight yards Saturday at Florida State.
Analysis:Michael Campanaro proved he isn't matchup proof, but his team had just 126 offensive yards. He'll be back to his big stat lines next time out against Army.
News:Michael Campanaro caught 13 passes for 164 yards Saturday against North Carolina, both career-highs.
Analysis:Michael Campanaro is a receptions monster, totaling 22 through two games. There's little reason to expect this to slow down, either.
News:Michael Campanaro (ankle) says he'll "definitely be good to go" for Saturday's game against North Carolina, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Analysis:Michael Campanaro is going to play, so he should be in lineups, but this ankle injury isn't going to disappear overnight. He may not be fully healthy until after the team's Week Seven bye.
News:Michael Campanaro missed most of the third quarter after spraining his ankle, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Analysis: Still, Michael Campanaro finished the night with an impressive 96 yards and a touchdown on nine catches, so owners are probably wishing for one more quarter of terrific production. It's concerning that Campanaro can't shake his ankle injury, as it limited him during August too. Keep an eye on this closely.
News:Michael Campanaro sat out today's scrimmage due to an ankle injury, but is expected back on the practice field Monday, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Analysis: We're at the point in camp where injuries are popping up all over the place. This one doesn't sound serious, which is a relief for a guy with expectations like Michael Campanaro.
News: Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro had four catches for 60 yards against Florida State. He also tossed a 30-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
Analysis: Further proving Camanaro's versatility, it's his second passing score on the year. He's a pivotal part of the Deacs' attack, and a fun player to own.
News: Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro (hamstring) is not on this week's injury report.
Analysis: Campanaro sat out against Gardner-Webb two weeks ago prior to the Deacs' bye week. He'll resume his multi-dimensional success Saturday against Boston College.
News: Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro (hamstring) is doubtful to play against Garnder-Webb.
Analysis: Wake has a bye next week, so they'll likely give Campanaro two weeks to heal. He's been a real breakout star so far so hopefully this injury doesn't linger. Lovell Jackson will start in his place, and Danny Dembry will likely see increased snaps as well.
News: Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro had 93 yards and a receiving touchdown, and also tossed a 40-yard touchdown pass against N.C. State.
Analysis: Campanaro doesn't have a rushing attempt through two games, but he's clearly a vital cog in the Deacons attack. He's definitely worth considering next week against Gardner-Webb.
News: Wake Forest's depth chart had some new names listed as starting wide receivers, Danny Dembry and Lovell Jackson.
Analysis: Interesting. They're listed ahead of Chris Givens and Michael Campanaro, respectively. Givens' demotion wasn't a surprise given head coach Jim Grobe's comments of late, and we'll assume Campanaro's (hamstring) limited practice earned Jackson a start in week one. I'd expect both to see enough action that you can start each if you were already planning on doing so, but Givens is squarely in the doghouse, and I'd be concerned about him over the season.
News: Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro (hamstring) has returned to practice.
Analysis: Campanaro is one of my favorite sleepers this season, and his limited participation in camp has led to very little news about the sophomore coming out. This is a good thing for you if you trust my gut. Reading about Chris Givens' injury gives me a little more faith here, and Campanaro could be a sneaky option late in your drafts.
News: Head coach of Wake Forest Jim Grobe, writes Heather Dinich of ESPN.com, is "still looking" for a go-to receiver heading into 2011, and believes he could find his answer in Campanaro.
Analysis: As Dinich notes, Chris Givens seems the natural choice for the role of go-to pass catcher for the Demon Deacons, but "has been inconsistent and needs a better work ethic" before he can rise to the occasion. That being the case and based on a spring in which Campanaro finished amongst the top receivers in camp, it could be the redshirt sophomore who picks up the torch and looks to establish himself as Tanner Price's top target in 2011.
News: Campanaro had 19 carries for 67 yards and one catch for 18 yards against NC State on Saturday.
Analysis: Campanaro may heave led the team in rushing but he wasn't extremely effective himself. An inconsistent timeshare in the backfield may lead to some looks but not enough to be a solid option.
