Chat replay and highlights from press gathering

First, thanks to Yale senior linebacker Jordan Haynes for being the special guest on the first Yale football chat of 2011. We peaked at 24 viewers which I'm told it pretty good for these things. We have some bugs to be worked out which should happen by the time we do another one of these.

As for the first of Tuesday's press gatherings at Mory's, some news came out of it.

First, the injury situation.

According to Yale football coach Tom Williams, freshman William Chism is still having his injured hand examined. Williams was not sure if surgery or even if cast would be needed and there is hope that the injury he suffered is not of the season-ending variety. If that is the case, he could be the fourth member of the freshman class in danger of being sidelined for the season. Defensive back Ethan DeSilva (knee) and defensive end Max Fink (hip) came to Yale with pre-existing injuries that figure to keep them sidelined. Running back Kahlil Keys suffered a knee injury on Thursday and it is sounding as if he will have to sit out the season.

Receivers coach Kefense Hynson has taken over the play-calling responsibilities from Brian Stark. I will have more on this either later today or tomorrow.

Yale senior quarterback Patrick Witt had an interview with Yale's three-member Rhodes Scholarship committee and will find out by Monday if they will recommend him to become a Rhodes candidate. There will be more on Witt, his Rhodes' aspirations and his maturity as a quarterback since arriving at Yale.

For those wanting to read the aforementioned chat, a replay is available here
