BYU head coach Kalani Sitake addressed the media Monday afternoon in a more upbeat than normal press conference (yay for winning!)
Here are some of the highlights of his comments:
Sitake addressed a few injuries that were suffered during the San Jose State game. Reserve linebacker Grant Jones suffered an injury that will require season-ending surgery. Jones has played multiple positions during his time at BYU. Jones is a senior, meaning the injury ends his BYU career.
Running Back KJ Hall had a breakout game versus the Spartans, but left the game due to injury. Sitake said the injury is not season ending, and he is “day-to-day” at the moment. The sophomore running back “could play this week” versus Fresno State, according to Sitake.
As far as running backs go, Ula Tolutau is listed as the starting running back for Fresno State in the newly released depth chart. It remains to be seen if the the freshman running back will actually play after being held out last game due to marijuana possession.

In addition to his addressing of injuries, Sitake talked about the defensive backs’ performance, looked ahead to Fresno State, discussed Tanner Mangum’s performance, and more.
