BYU football injury report ahead of Wyoming game

PROVO, Utah – We have already reached week four of the BYU football season. Like most teams at this point in the year, BYU has had its share of bumps, bruises and injuries.

No. 19 BYU takes on Wyoming at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday night in Provo.

Here’s the latest injury information for BYU football players

The latest on Puka Nacua and Gunner Romney

Puka Nacua and Gunner Romney left the training grounds after training on Tuesday and Wednesday ended. Romney was in a “contactless” green jersey. Both players have “hope” for Saturday night, according to BYU offensive coordinator Aaron Roderick.

“They’re both training, and it’s the same old scratched record, hopefully,” Roderick said.

Tyler Batty will play

BYU defensive end Tyler Batty told KSL Sports on the Cougar Tracks podcast that he will play Saturday night against the Pokes.

“I feel a lot better than a week ago so I’ll take it. I feel really good and excited. Back in the pads and practicing this week and moving and ready to go this weekend,” Batty told KSL Sports.

Batty is one of BYU’s defensive line starters who didn’t play in the loss to the Oregon Ducks. Along with Batty, the Cougars were also without Earl Tuioti-Mariner. No official word on his availability for Saturday night, but he was training this week after missing last week’s game.

Gabe Summers played through a partially torn PCL

BYU defensive lineman Gabe Summers was injured in Week 1 against USF. Summers told KSL Sports that he partially tore his PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) against the Bulls, but he hasn’t missed a beat since.

“I partially tore my PCL in that first game, and the doctors told me I was going to be out for two to four weeks potentially, but luckily I was able to play the last two,” Summers said. at KSL Sports.

How is it ?

“I just think we’ve got great braces, we’ve got awesome coaching staff, awesome equipment teams and a lot of support staff that help us get things done,” Summers said. “I definitely had to adjust my style of play a bit in those first two games. But I think Ilaisa (Tuiaki) is smart with us in training, just bringing our body back to 100% so we can do well. play and perform at the level we are used to playing.

BYU football DB Kaleb Hayes

BYU starting cornerback and captain Kaleb Hayes left the game against Oregon with concussion-like symptoms. He left the Autzen stadium pitch with his helmet removed, his pads still in place and was alone on the pitch.

BYU coach Kalani Sitake said if it was up to Hayes, he would be ready to return this week. But BYU has generally been cautious with any injuries, so it might be unrealistic to expect Hayes to return for the Wyoming game this week.

If Hayes isn’t available, watch Vanderbilt transfer Gabe Jeudy-Lally stepping in as a starter at cornerback, along with D’Angelo Mandell. Jakob Robinson will be a replacement, along with Jacob Boren or JUCO transfer Mory Bamba.
