Mostly, Mendenhall's chat with the media was personnel-oriented, as he answered questions about injured players, players who are trying to transfer to BYU, and others.
A quick recap:
* Mendenhall said linebacker Uani Unga (chest contusion) is "possible" to play against Texas.
"I don't know exactly what possible means, other than it is probably more likely than doubtful, but less likely than probable. ... Which means when they kick if off, we will both probably know. But I don't right now," he said.
* Mendenhall said WR Cody Hoffman (hamstring) is "probable" for Texas.
"Hoffman practiced today. ... Let's take a big step forward on that one. That's the language I get and I look at them like you are looking at me. So I thought we would just be unified."
* Mendenhall said DB Mike Hague (hamstring) is doubtful. His injury is much more serious than Hoffman's.
* Mendenhall said that def. back Sam Lee, a junior college transfer who injured his back before fall camp, is not recovering well and probably won't play this season.
"I just found out yesterday. We were expecting him [to re-join team]. He's been in a brace, a back brace since two a days. Most likely he is not going to return this season. We were expecting that he might practice next week and be ready for the third game. But he has not healed as expected."
Mendenhall said he believes Lee has a redshirt year, but wasn't sure.
