WVU freshamn RB out for a few weeks


Recommended Posts


Coach Rich Rodriguez will have one less offensive threat to use against Big East favorite Louisville. Freshman running back Jason Gwaltney will miss a minimum of four weeks with a sprained knee ligament suffered late in Saturday's 27-14 win over Rutgers.

Gwaltney ranked third with 186 yards this season on a team that uses five running backs and two mobile quarterbacks.

"Jason's brought a lot to us," Rodriguez said Sunday. "Injuries happen. We're in the seventh straight week of playing without an open date."

When asked which running back will have to step in Gwaltney's place, Rodriguez said, "It will be all of them."

He expects sophomore Pernell Williams, veteran Jason Colson and fullback Owen Schmitt to get more carries against No. 19 Louisville (4-1) on Saturday.

Louisville is averaging 47 points on offense, and West Virginia will need its best performance yet to match that. The Mountaineers average 29 points per game but haven't scored a touchdown in the second half in three games.

Gwatlney was the #1 recruit in the Big East last year and #1 Tailback in the nation coming out of HS.

Carlton Hill was the #2 BE recruit, according to Athlon.  Hope he starts to wear more stick-um on his gloves and proves his high rating is worthy.
