MORGANTOWN — oooooo
WVU’s bye week came along at just the right time, according to the injury report.
According to Holgorsen, junior running back Dustin Garrison and sophomore linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, who had been the team’s leading tackler until injured, are nursing hamstring injuries but should be ready to practice next week.
Sophomore cornerback Ricky Rumph left the Baylor game with a foot injury but is expected to be able to face Texas Tech. Starting offensive lineman Quinton Spain suffered a concussion against Baylor but is expected to face Texas Tech, as is wide receiver Ivan McCartney, who missed the Baylor game.
Junior linebacker Wes Tonkery suffered a broken thumb against Baylor, and junior wide receiver Mario Alford has a shoulder injury that may keep him out of Texas Tech.
Finally, junior quarterback Clint Trickett will take this week off to rehabilitate his injured shoulder, and redshirt freshman quarterback Ford Childress is expect to be stronger with his pectoral muscle this week after Holgorsen held him out against Baylor, not thinking he was yet strong enough for game play.
“College football — everyone is dealing with what we’re dealing with,” Holgorsen said. “We have to regroup and get healthier, which is what I expect to do this week. We need to prepare for Texas Tech.”
