Deontay Burnett Is Day-To-Day

Like I wrote in the Morning Buzz today, Clay Helton confirmed Deontay Burnett is day-to-day with a shoulder injury. Now what does day-to-day mean? Burnett had his shoulder in a sling Sunday but that doesn’t necessarily mean he is out. If he is supposed to be out 2-3 weeks could he still play Friday? Maybe.

Meanwhile, Ronald Jones practiced and said, “”I’m ready to go Friday.”

    Hope he can go on Friday because we’re going to need him.

  • Holy Toledo. Possibly no Burnett, a banged-up Jones and Gustin and other top-notches questionable?

    This is not going to turn out well I am afraid.

  • Wait a minute. We’re talking about Washington St, aren’t we. The Cougars of eastern Washington state. Aren’t we supposed to beat them even with half a team?

    • RegalTrojan

      No. Make that 1/3.

  • rusoviet

    Forces the use of the bench warmers that many have been screaming haven’t been used enough.

    • Gabby

      I want to see what Pittman can do?

      • Cloud Shaman

        he is at 70%

    • RegalTrojan

      Losing Burnett for just one game would be a huge blow for our team. He is the only receiver who seems to have good rapport with Darnold, and he’s a real workhorse that earns yardage. I’d be quite nervous to watch this Friday’s game without him in it.

      • Cloud Shaman

        Washington State defense is porous

        • RegalTrojan

          That may be true, but I don’t think our team is in a position to underestimate any team after barely pulling it out 3 out of 4 games played so far.

          • Cloud Shaman

            we will clobber them.

          • RegalTrojan

    Does anyone know if he got hurt on a play near the Cal sideline around the 40 or so when he got driven into the turf by a second player near the end of the play? Thought at the time it was a borderline dirty play much like the clip that injured one of the D-Lineman that did get called.

    • JBKayak

      Did our D linemen get hurt in the cheap shot at the end of the game? Any lingering effects?

  • Paul Muad’dib

    If USC’s corners avoid falling down for no apparent reason, then USC should control this game easily.

  • Uncle Rico

    Dr Doom is in over drive these days.

    Ok, you are rewriting what you wrote earlier today.
    Are you now asking us to interpret what Clay Helton meant?
    Would it not have been easier to ask him while you were there, when he confirmed the injury?

    • Gabby

      Wolf was on the couch all day. He sent one of his cronies to get some answers, but as usual, just more unanswered questions

      • LAfan

        TBH he wasn’t on the couch. He was on the can. Five Guys fights back.

        • Gabby

          That must of been the emergency owns responded to. According to a source, one of the heads at Five Guys was torn up.

          • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

            Kinda funny how owns just sort of disappears during the football season, when his bRuins inevitably start losing.

  • Gabby

    Ok wolfie, If you went to the local donut hole and the nice lady told you it’s day to day on when the XL chocolate bars would be available again, would you understand?………probably not

  • Gabby

    FYI…..Jack Jones was named PAC12 defensive player of the week.

    Wolf will mention this in his 3am post

  • David Keeling

    If our starter WRs are banged up and are not able to go all out, then throws to the RBs out of the backfield have got to make up some of this difference in addition to the Tight end. The importance of the running game becomes paramount as our O-line has got to open up running lanes. We need to control the ball against Wazzu and keep our DBs fresh for the passing onslaught that will occur. No matter the lack of imagination in Tee Martin’s playcalling these past weeks, he needs to get out of his funk and do more than every other play call a up the middle RB run that hasn’t been working.

  • LamontRaymond

    The “injury” is just an excuse to give DB a chance to rest for 2 – 3 days. God knows, he deserves it.

  • Pasadena Trojan

    Vaughns, Lewis, Mitchell, Petite (TE), and others need to put in the time and effort at practice this week. They need to concentrate on catching the ball by looking the ball into their hands. Oline needs to make holes for the rb’s. Just assume that Deontay won’t be there this week.
