Willingham update

Not much to report from Tyrone Willingham’s daily pre-practice meeting with the media.
He said the team made it through Wednesday’s practice without any new injuries of signifigance and said the team did “great work.” The only player from last week who figures to miss this week’s game is FB Luke Kravitz (hand).
He said CB Byron Davenport continues to progress, and while he wouldn’t commit to Davenport playing against Boise State, sounds (and looks) as if he will.
He also said MLB Donald Butler “seems to be moving around better” though it is still a game-time decision whether he starts or if the nod goes to Trenton Tuiasosopo.
My thought is that Butler may be a better fit against some of the passing stuff that BSU does than is Tuiasosopo so it wouldn’t surprise me if Butler played more this week if he is really getting healthier.
RB J.R. Hasty, meanwhile, is “still a little bit bothered” by his ankle injury, which is limiting his chances to get more carries, both in practice and in games.
Willingham also said that DE Darrion Jones remains out.
On the lineup front, Willingham dropped one interesting note saying that not only does the left tackle job remain uncertain but that all three of the team’s top tackles — Chad Macklin, Ben Ossai and Cody Habben — could work in a rotation at both spots.
Headed out to practice, so if there is anything new we’ll have it later.
PRACTICE UPDATE: Nothing much from the field, but here are a few other notes gleaned mostly from talking to people while watching out allotment of practice.
— The 1960 replica jerseys are now on sale at the store in Hec Ed, so you can check those out Saturday. That’s the same style the team will wear against USC Sept. 29.
— A new LED reader board has been installed on the fence behind the open end zone and will be operating Saturday.
— OL Aaron Mason remains limited, as well, and has been mostly running steps and doing other conditioning this week. Not sure what his ailment is.
