Husson University freshmen running back Ryan Dorso returned to the practice field Monday for the first time in three weeks.
Dorso, a Farmingdale native, had sat out the last three games after suffering a concussion Oct. 8 against Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.
“It wasn’t very fun,” said Dorso, who transferred to Husson from the University of Maine. “I knew right away. I had a concussion in high school and it was pretty much the same feeling. It was tough.”
Dorso attended Kents Hill School and did a post-graduate year as well.
He enrolled at UMaine last January but left this fall, saying he preferred to be at a smaller university.
Now, he hopes to get back on the field for the Eagles (0-8) this weekend, when they play at Castleton State in Castleton, Vt.
“We could use him,” Husson coach Sean Murphy said. “He can make an immediate impact for us.”
Dorso has rushed for 31 yards and a touchdown in five games this season.
