Frankly, if a coach wants to play games with injuries that’s his choice. Until college sports finally caves into the NFL-type injury report it’s just a cat-and-mouse game coaches will play.

Saturday, Sam Pittman gave out the injury report of an entire string of players that didn’t take part in the scrimmage or are being held out for some unspecified nagging hurts.

As of now, everybody is expected to be available for the opener against Rice on Sept. 4.

That’s less than two weeks away and we’ll know then what’s real and exactly what deserves concern.
