Junior wide receiver Fred Lee is participating fully in practice and will start Wednesday night in UB’s MAC opener against Kent State.
Lee missed the Morgan State game two weeks ago with an undisclosed injury, but Bulls coach Jeff Quinn said today Lee will play on Wednesday.
“We’ve done a really good job at bringing him along but it’s a physical game and Fred is a tough guy,’’ Quinn said. “He wanted to play [against Morgan State] but I told him I think it’s best to get someone else in there and that I want him at 100percent. He respected that and has been a tremendous leader.’’
Lee started in the season opener against Georgia and finished with two receptions for 13 yards. There are no other injuries to report.
On the depth chart, perhaps looking to spark the much-maligned secondary, senior Isaac Baugh moves from outside linebacker to strong safety in place of junior Okoye Houston, who is now behind Baugh on the depth chart. Dalonte Wallace, who finished with six tackles and a sack against Morgan State, will start at outside linebacker.
On offense, junior Brandon Murie is now the backup at tailback behind Bo Oliver with sophomore James Potts out for the season with a torn ACL.
