Junior wide receiver Dylan Denso broke a finger on Wednesday and it will be operated on Friday or Saturday. It will be a 7-day recovery.
He is expected back with the team before the first week of preparation.
The 6-foot-2 and 205 pound wideout will have to play with his finger pinned. Junior tight end Gavin Escobar had a similar injury last season.
Denso is one of six returning offensive starters. He finished 3rd on the team in receiving with 634 yards.
Fan Fest Saturday
San Diego State football Fan Fest will take place Saturday at Cathedral Catholic High School. It will involve a scrimmage that begins at 12 p.m.
It will be played like a regular game with four quarters with the first and third quarters on regular game time. There will be timeouts, clocked stopped on incompletions, running out of bounds, after first downs, etc.
The second and fourth quarters will be running clock. The only time the clock will stop in those two quarters is when there is an injury. If a team is driving with less than 2 minutes left to tie or win the game the clock will run like it did in the first and third quarters.
If it is tied at the end of regulation the two teams will play overtime.
This will be the last scrimmage for the Aztecs until they play Washington on September 1st.
Offensive Line Battle
SDSU coaches know who will be playing and who won't be heading into Fan Fest on Saturday.
"We kind of know who our players are and we know whose going to play and not," SDSU head coach Rocky Long said. "It might make a difference of whose on top of the chart instead of second. They'll play about the same anyways."
That can't be said for the offensive line as the competition is heating up for two starting spots.
"I think that's a huge competition might be the best competition we have on our team," Long said. "I think we have three starters: the center, the right guard and [Bryce] Quigley at left tackle. I think the left guard and right tackle are still up for competition for someone to step up and do a good job."
-Sophomore defensive lineman Everett Beed left practice with an apparent leg injury and did not return.
-NFL scouts from the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots were at practice.
-San Diego State basketball players Jamaal Franklin and Xavier Thames stopped by for the scrimmage portion of practice as well as former SDSU quarterback Kevin O'Connell.
-Senior backup center Jimmy Miller could see some time at guard with the offensive line lacking depth.
"Jimmy knows the scheme well enough to play center or guard," Long said.
"Right now we are trying to develop some guards. Trying to develop a left guard and right tackle. We already know what Jimmy can do so I would guess he would be in there very often. We know what he can do. If he is our best guy he'll be in there a week before the game."
-Garrett Corbett is scheduled to have surgery on his broken lower leg on Friday.
