The news is good, relatively speaking, for Central Washington running back Jordan Todd.
The 5-foot-6, 186-pound sophomore, who leads the Wildcats with 933 yards, might be able to play Saturday after suffering a separated right shoulder during last week’s 24-17 loss to Azusa Pacific.
Todd incurred the injury during the first half of the game and watched the second in street clothes.
“Right now he’s questionable,” CWU head coach John Picha said Tuesday night. “He might be able to play Saturday because playing shouldn’t make it worse. It mostly depends on how much pain he can endure.”
Todd ranks second in the GNAC in rushing, having scored seven touchdowns and averaged 116.6 yards per game and 4.5 per carry.
Picha also said that starting defensive end Gabe Bruno, who’s missed several games with broken right thumb, will be available for Saturday’s game and that wide receiver Kent McKinney Jr., who also had a shoulder injury, could also play.
Saturday’s conference matchup with Humboldt State, scheduled for 1 p.m., will be the last home game this year for the Wildcats (5-2 GNAC, 5-3 overall), who are second in the GNAC and will close their season with road games against Western Oregon and Dixie State, respectively.
