After Bulls starting quarterback B.J. Daniels went down with a left hamstring injury during USF's Tuesday morning practice, Head Coach Skip Holtz addressed the injury before the Bulls night practice saying the injury wasn't severe and Daniels will only be limited for just a few days.

"It's been sore. His hamstring has been sore from the last couple of days, and he's kind of been nursing it, getting a lot of treatment with it. And he just really felt it tightened up, and knot up. He didn't pull it. It's not severe or anything like that," said Holtz. "He's going to be a little bit limited for a couple of days."

Daniels injury occurred during when he scrambled out of the pocket and when he made a cut to make a defender miss, he slipped and went down awkwardly, and clutched his left hamstring. The Bulls starting QB was on the ground for a few minutes with many holding their breath, while trainers attended to him. Everyone seemed to exhale when he got up with an ice pack wrapped around his leg and he was able to move around as practice concluded.

It didn't appear to be a serious injury when it happened and Coach Holtz confirmed that and gave his timetable for a return.

"We're going to work on trying to get that knot out of there. There's no deficit. There's no tear or anything else. He should be fine," said Holtz. "He'll probably be able to do a little bit of limited throwing and everything. This doesn't affect his arm or what he's doing with that. But he won't take any team work for about two days. And then we'll turn and evaluate it from there. I would expect it to be just a couple-of-days deal."

Daniels was a bystander during the second session of practice at Holman stadium in Vero and was smiling and joking around while watching practice and was even carrying a clip board and seemed to be helping out during QB drills.

"He's in great spirits, it's not like it's a six-week deal," Holtz said referring to Daniels missing a few days of practice. "There are probably a lot of people that wish they were out for a couple days right now."
