BYU's Jacobson a gametime decision
Posted by ESPN.com’s Graham Watson
PROVO, Utah -- BYU receiver McKay Jacobson will be a game-time decision for today’s game against TCU.
Jacobson, the Cougars’ best deep threat, has missed the past three games with a strained hamstring and was limited in practice again this week. Coach Bronco Mendenhall didn’t rule out Jacobson’s return.
"I'd say 'possible.' No more than that, no less than that," Mendenhall said this week. "I haven't seen enough to upgrade his status."
The one thing that could hamper Jacobson return is the weather. The rain has been on and off and even if Jacobson is feeling better, the slippery field might become a hazardous situation for him.
BYU nose tackle Russell Tialavea is back for today’s game, but will not start. He is, however, expected to play.
