Bonnell ready to go, Wells could start (Updated)

Tyrone Willingham just met us for the last time before Saturday’s game and there isn’t much change in the state of any personnel.
He said quarterback Carl Bonnell has looked good in practice and will definitely start. Johnny DuRocher has not practiced and won’t play but will likely make the trip.
Willingham said Jason Wells has progressed to the point that he could start at free safety Saturday ahead of Chris Hemphill, who has started the past two games. But that likely has nothing to do with all that has happened with Hemphill the past few weeks. Instead, it’s simply that Wells was the starter before and will get the job back if he’s healthy.
On that note, Willingham said Michael Braunstein will be the starting kicker Saturday.
DT Donny Mateaki (calf) could play and LB Donald Butler (calf) has been progressing well and will almost certainly play. And fullback Luke Kravitz, out the past three games with a knee injury, “may also be able to see some action,” Willingham said.
The team leaves Friday afternoon, flying into Lewiston and then busing to Pullman.
Willingham said the team will make a quick trip through Martin Stadium upon arrival. It won’t be a walk-through as the team won’t do any football-related activity. Instead, Willingham referred to it as an “on-site inspection.”
PRACTICE UPDATE — Appeared to be a truncated workout going on today as the regular players were all without pads and helmets, going through plays in a walk-through style.
But all the freshmen and redshirting players were in full pads, suggesting that they might be playing what is commonly referred to as a “Scout Bowl” to get all of those players some live-action work.
