BYU loses projected WR starter for up to two months

Nick Kurtz

Another day, another projected starter at the FBS level is felled by injury.

The latest to get hit is BYU, with wide receiver Nick Kurtz suffering a stress fracture in his left foot during practice this week.  because of the injury, Kurtz will be out for a period of 6-8 weeks.

If Kurtz is out six weeks, he’d miss games against UConn, Texas, Houston and Virginia.  If its eight weeks, Utah State, after a bye, would be out as well.

The 6-6, 205-pound Kurtz came to BYU from the JUCO ranks as part of the 2014 recruiting class. Kurtz was listed as the No. 4 receiver and No. 22 JUCO player at any position in the country by Rivals.com.

Despite being a newcomer into the program, Kurtz was projected to be one of BYU’s starting receivers when the season opened.

    Who cares about the over rated cult school? They get ranked because half their opponents are powder puffs. They would finish dead last in the SEC. They would be winless in the Pac-12.
