Reserve O-linemen getting some work

Some backup offensive linemen got some work with the starters for Wyoming during Tuesday morning’s practice at Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium.

Redshirt freshman Chase Roullier continued to get reps at left guard for senior Tyler Strong, who missed last week’s game with Northern Colorado and is listed as questionable for Saturday night’s game at Air Force. Roullier started for Strong last week.

Sophomore Austin Traphagan got some snaps at left guard for sophomore starter Jake Jones, who appeared to suffer a minor injury in Tuesday’s practice. Traphagan is listed as a backup tackle, but also has played guard at UW. Redshirt freshman walk-on Josh Teeter also got a few snaps at guard.

Sophomore center Rafe Kiely continues to alternate snaps with junior starter Albert Perez. Perez has started the first three games, and is slated to do so at Air Force.
