Watts, Velazquez back in the mix on Pokes O-line
LARAMIE -- News on the injury front for quarterback Sean Chambers wasn't good, but the Cowboys will be getting some muscle back on the offensive line before the final four-game stretch.
Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl announced Monday that Zach Watts and Alonzo Velazquez are back in the mix after suffering what was thought to be possible season-ending injuries.
"We are excited about that," Bohl said of the return of Watts, who was hurt in spring practice. "How much and how functional he is this week, we'll (find out)."
Velazquez, the 6-foot, 6-inch, 310-pound tackle, was hurt at San Diego State and hasn't played since.
"I probably misspoke a couple of weeks ago when I said Alonzo will be out," Bohl said. "Got some encouraging news on him and he will be returning back. He will do some work this week, I don't know if he'll be ready for play this week. but certainly will be in position to finish out the season."
Frank Crum, the 6-foot, 7-inch, 300-pound redshirt freshman from Laramie, has played in the last three games at the right tackle spot and is listed as the starter there for Saturday night's game at Boise State.
Watts, a 6-foot, 5-inch, 280-pound redshirt freshman, played in three games last season. The Cowboys won every one of those starts.
True freshman running back Titus Swen is still about three weeks from playing, according to Bohl. Swen was also injured in San Diego, suffering an MCL sprain.
