Barring something totally unforeseen -- like what happened last Friday before BYU played Middle Tennessee State -- both Cody Hoffman and Jamaal Williams should play on Friday when the Cougars take on Utah State at sold-out Romney Stadium in Logan.
You can read more about that, and get injury updates on several other Cougars, in this notebook in today's Tribune.
"Yeah, it is huge. Jamaal is a guy who the defense has to prepare for, and the same thing with Cody," said BYU quarterback Taysom Hill. "Even if they are not getting the ball regularly, the defense has to account for them, so that's really big. So it is good to have them back, but at the same time, I was really impressed with the way Ross [Apo] played, and the way Mitch [Mathews] played. Those guys really stepped up, and I expect them to continue to do those things whether or not Cody is in the lineup."<
