Hawaii: Colt Up And Running

After missing portions of two games already this season, Hawai'i quarterback Colt Brennan has had more than his fill of watching from the bench. The senior suffered a sprained right ankle earlier in the season and then re-aggravated it on Saturday against Utah State, but he practiced on Monday and is certain that he will start in Friday's road game at San Jose State. Brennan played in only five series last week, including one in the second half, before the injury took him out of the game, but head coach June Jones has said that Brennan will be fine to start on Saturday.

After the game at San Jose State, the Warriors have a week off for Brennan to fully rest his ankle in preparation for the Oct. 27 matchup with New Mexico State. The senior is planning to go all-out on Saturday, knowing that he will have a full 15 days to recover, which he will need if he expects his Heisman hopes to turn into reality.

Defensive tackle Michael Lafaele should also be ready to go on Saturday after missing last week's game with a strained hamstring, fractured right hand and strained left calf. The defensive captain had more things wrong than right on the injury front, so for the first time in his career, he did not suit up for the home game. Despite his laundry list of injuries, he has said that they are "nothing serious" and he will be ready to play on Saturday.

Not so optimistic is cornerback Ryan Mouton, who will miss his second-straight game with a partially torn PCL in his right knee. He will be fitted for a knee brace that will allow him to run, since the injury is to an area that does not require surgery.
