Injury Updates for BYU

Here is all the latest news on injuries and availability for the BYU game this weekend.

Michael Pitre is not ready yet and likely won't play against the Cougars. Trevor Theriot will start again this Saturday.

Chane Moline started practicing with a splint for his broken wrist. He likely won't be available for the game, but a final decision has not yet been made. Christian Ramirez, who had 55 yards and a TD against the Cardinal, will take Moline's carries.

Rodney Van, who injured his leg against Stanford, is a game-time decision. He hasn't practiced much this week in an effort to let the injury heal. Alteraun Verner will take his spot at corner and Michael Norris would come in on nickel packages.

Backup defensive tackle Jerzy Siewierski injured his leg in practice and was in a walking boot today. He was in the rotation against Stanford but didn't record any tackles. He looks doubtful for the next game.

Patrick Cowan won't play this week but he did some limited drills in practice this week. He should be able to get back into full practices in the next week or two and maybe be available to backup Ben a few weeks after that.
