BYU suffers bad break: lineman possibly out 'several weeks'


The only returning starter on BYU’s offensive line Will Likely be lost for an extended period time after breaking his hand, the Salt Lake Tribune is reporting.

Matt Reynolds suffered a broken bone in his left hand at some point during practice today.  Afterwards, an X-ray revealed a break.

According to the Tribune, the lineman will see a specialist either later on today or tomorrow.

At that time, a more definitive length of absence will be determined, although the paper wrote that Reynolds “could be out several weeks”.

Without Reynolds in the lineup, the projected starting line would have a combined 10 college starts between them.  

That statistic doesn’t bode well for the Cougars’ season-opening game in the new Texas Stadium versus No. 3 Oklahoma.
