Everything seems to be OK – at least with quarterback Matt Grothe.
The redshirt freshman returned to practice Wednesday after missing two days with a boot on his right foot. During USF’s win against Connecticut on Saturday, Grothe injured his foot on the first play of the second quarter, and team doctors told Grothe he sprained the ligaments in his foot.
“He looked real good today,” coach Jim Leavitt said. “He’s not all the way back, but he has two (more) days. He’s still tender, so he didn’t go all the way.”
Leavitt added that backup quarterbacks Pat Julmiste and Grant Gregory ran most of the first team plays Wednesday. He also said if Grothe re-injures his foot before Saturday, Julmiste would get the start.
Returner lightly working: Receiver Ean Randolph, who injured his hip in Saturday’s game, also practiced Wednesday, but did not have a full practice. Leavitt said Randolph, who is seventh in the nation in punt returns, is “tender” and said he didn’t know if receiver Amarri Jackson would fill in if Randolph is sidelined.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
