D.J. May

Wyoming has fingers crossed for injured second-leading rusher

Last week it was a suspension.  This week, it’s an on-field matter that leaves one of Wyoming’s top running back’s future uncertain.

Earlier this week rumors begin to circulate that D.J. May suffered some type of injury during practice. The school sent out a press release Thursday stating that “May did suffer an injury to a knee in Wednesday’s practice,” but that “[d]octors have not yet evaluated tests on the severity of May’s injury.”

As of early Friday afternoon, there was still no definitive word on May’s status moving forward.

May’s 260 yards and two rushing touchdowns remain second on the Cowboys this season. His two receiving touchdowns are tied for second on the team as well.

Mays was suspended for last Saturday’s overtime loss to San Jose State for violating unspecified team rules.

Wyoming suspends second-leading rusher

Saturday’s Gameday for most FBS players, but it won’t be for one member of the Wyoming football program.

In a press release, first-year Cowboys head coach Craig Bohl announced that running back D.J. Mays has been suspended for today’s game against San Jose State.  The reason given was, as expected, an unspecified violation of team rules.

It’s unclear from the release if this is merely a one-game suspension or if it will drag into Week 9.

Through six games, Mays is second on the team with 260 yards and two rushing touchdowns.
