Breaking News: Injury Report

TBS has the latest word on the injury toll coming out of BYU's spring football practice. Two Cougars who proved significant contributors in spring camp may not be ready to go come fall.

More often than not, spring practice is fraught with untimely injuries to key players. Such was the case with BYU this past spring as two players who distinguished themselves throughout spring practices went down with injuries during the last week of practice. The recovery timetable is such that both of these players will struggle to make it back in time for two-a-days this coming August.

Travis Bright suffered a broken ankle during the last week of spring practice and is questionable for two-a-days. Bright is a 6'5", 315-pound redshirt freshman who locked down the right guard position vacated by Scott Young and started exclusively with the first-team throughout spring practice.

Matt Smith a 6'2", 185-pound sophomore is a wide receiver who saw many reps with the first team on offense and really worked to distinguish himself as a major contributor throughout the spring. Smith tore his ACL during the spring game and like Bright, Smith is questionable for two-a-days and into the fall football season. Smith had immediate surgery and will begin the arduous process of rehabbing his ACL injury in time to contribute to the team this fall.
