Lockridge has just five carries in two games on offense, though he has returned seven kickoffs for an average of 23.4 yards.
Lockridge can be an explosive player with the ball in his hands. If he gets past the first level of the defense, watch out. He can be tough to bring down, mostly because he's often too fast to catch.
"He's been dinged up," running backs coach Darian Hagan said. "You don't want a guy who has some ailments to get in there and get him banged up a lot. That guy is a guy who when he gets the ball, he's going to house it."
This week could be the perfect time to get Lockridge more involved once again if his health cooperates. The Hawaii defense is giving up nearly 250 rushing yards per game.
Hagan had this to say about Torres.
"He's doing a good job," Hagan said. "Last week he made a few minor mistakes, but other than that, he is right where we want him to be.
"You will see him in there Saturday. We have some things for him to spell Speedy in both the pass game and the run game."
