Starting cornerback Chris Randle and starting safety Rajric Coleman are both expected to miss Saturday's game at San Diego State, Aggieville has learned. Both were injured last Saturday against Fresno State, both have been key components to an improved defense. They become the second and third starters to miss this week with an injury incurred last week. Michael Smith, with Turf Toe, was confirmed out for Saturday earlier in the week. Utah State's secondary, with those two missing, takes a significant hit with its ability to cover. It also takes a hit in the depth department. Aggies head coach Gary Andersen told Aggieville earlier in the week that true freshman Nevin Lawson would be practicing with the team, and traveling to San Diego. On Thursday morning, he told Aggieville that Lawson would definitely play, a move that would probably nullify Lawson's redshirt. Freshmen Robert Marshall and Nick Diaz, at running back and placekicker respectively, are also expected to play. Tony Jones
