JUNIOR SLOTBACK Lorenzo Bursey and freshman linebacker Lamar Brumfield will be leaving WSU at semester's end, they told Cougfan.com. Bursey, the Cougars' No. 1 kick returner, missed most of spring workouts with a foot injury after moving back to the slot following a year at cornerback. His departure in particular creates some potentially interesting movement on the Cougar depth chart.

PULLMAN -- It was a day of comebacks for the Cougars, as players who had missed time with injuries were back on the field, albeit in limited roles. Of those who were at full strength, Michael Bumpus and Tyron Brackenridge turned in the plays of the day while DeMaundray Woolridge might get a crack at his third straight 100-yard game Saturday. On the downside, another Cougar corner went down to injury late Tuesday, and Lorenzo Bursey found himself working with the first team.
