Bulls' Taylor out 8-10 weeks

South Florida running back Jamar Taylor has a knee injury that should sideline him for 8 to 10 weeks, the school announced Tuesday.

Taylor's injury will not require surgery.

The injury to Taylor is especially tough for the Bulls because projected starting running back Mike Ford has been suspended for the first two games for violating team rules.

Tayor was injured during a scrimmage on Saturday.
