Ogbonna out vs. BYU

Wyoming junior receiver Mazi Ogbonna will miss Saturday’s game at BYU due to injury.

UW released its latest injury report at around 3 p.m., and Ogbonna was the only additional player on the list. True freshman defensive lineman Tyler Strong was on the list Monday and also missed last week’s game against No. 9 Utah.

UW does not list specific injuries, nor does coach Dave Christensen talk about specific injuries to players.

Ogbonna has played in all seven games this season after transferring from Snow College in Utah. He started the first three games. He’s caught nine passes for 92 yards and a touchdown, and is the fourth-leading rusher on the team with five carries for 22 yards.

I wasn’t too surprised Ogbonna didn’t make the trip. He participated in some drills but was limited. However, it doesn’t appear the injury is season-ending.

Expect senior Travis Burkhalter and juniors Jonathan Aiken and DeJay Lester to see more playing time at receiver against BYU. And, true freshman running back/receiver Robert Herron is back this week after missing the Utah game due to injury.
