With the New Mexico game three days away, at least two starters have question marks next to their names. WR Austin Collie and CB Ben Criddle are both hobbled with sprained ankles, and neither went full speed in practice today.

*******

Collie was more active than he had been, coming out at the start of practice in pads and a helmet, and running some straight-ahead routes, but he was the only guy in sweatpants, indicating his participation would be somewhat limited. Trainer Kevin Morris likes the way Collie's ankle has come along since last week, and he notes the upcoming bye week would be a positive consideration as Collie's availability is determined this week.

*******

Criddle is listed as probable for the game in Albuquerque, but his sprain is more recent, and while he was in full pads, he was kept out of all major practice elements. In his place, Andre Saulsberry took over first-sring boundary corner responsibilities.

*******

A scout from the New England Patriots was on hand this afternoon.

*******

I went over to the Marriott Center to check out the BYU Basketball team in an "open gym" session. The entire roster was present and accounted for, including Trent Plaisted, who is back on the floor for the first time this week, since recovering from a significant ankle sprain suffered during the Cougars' European tour.

*******

The Marriott Center has undergone considerable renovations over the last two offseasons, with lighting improvements among the most noticeable developments fans will recognize this season. I am told the lights are up to two-and-a-half times more luminescent in spots, and combined with the newly-redone, lighter floor, things will look "brighter" for the Cougars, no matter how they play.
