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.
