Coach Matt Rhule gave the press some critical updates on injuries / rehab progress with UTSA upcoming.
KJ Smith has been designated as doubtful with shin splints. Sounds silly, but I can personally attest nothing takes the power away from your legs like shin splints. Unfortunately, rest is the only remedy.

The secondary is looking to get a few important pieces back. Davion Hall has apparently returned to practice and is aiming to play this week. Harrison Hand should also return on Saturday against UTSA. The freshman had a few impressive flashes against Liberty... one of the few bright spots in a depleted unit last week. Jameson Houston also has been upgraded to probable.

JaMychal Hasty will also apparently be out of commission for roughly 4 weeks with a knee sprain. True freshman John Lovett showed impressive burst, and will hope to fill in as the main back while Terence Williams is still on the mend.
