West Virginia defensive tackle Scooter Berry is questionable for Thursday's game against Colorado with a lingering shoulder injury, head coach Bill Stewart said Monday.
Berry, a second-team All-Big East Conference performer last season, got hurt in the East Carolina game and did not play at Auburn on Sept. 19. Stewart said Berry went through practice drills on Sunday evening but was held out of all contact work.
"He has motion and movement and the whole deal (in the shoulder)," Stewart said. "But until he can protect himself, I will never ever play a young man who cannot defend himself."
Stewart said linebacker Reed Williams, who also missed the Auburn game with a sprained foot, would be good to go Thursday, along with quarterback Jarrett Brown, who bruised his nonthrowing shoulder near the end of the loss at Auburn.
Stewart also said that receiver Wes Lyons, who's been slowed at the start of the season by a hamstring injury, is recovered and should be at full speed this week.
