“It’s tough losing one of your leaders and he’s one of the guys that gets us going,” said Adam Hine. “It’s tough mostly to see him go down. We all need to step it up and get going now that he’s not with us.”
Hine himself isn’t fully healthy and won’t recuperate from a fractured sesamoid bone in his foot until he can actually let it heal without playing on it. The little bone embedded in a joint capsule or tendon allows for smooth movement of the feet. Healing it up doesn’t appear to be in the cards for Hine at this point in time.
“It needs rest,” said Hine. “I just decided with the doctor that I was going to play on it.”
The bye-week comes at a time in which many, including Hine, will look to recover more than practice, unlike the last bye week BYU had where they pressed hard in practice.
“You know what, from the player’s perspective we really want to rest,” said Hine. “The coaches have done a good job of seeing what we need. If we don’t need to practice super hard and take the bye-week as a week to rest up if we need to do that we’ll do that as well.”
