Some good news on Talerico

Sophomore offensive lineman James Talerico, who started at guard against Cornell, suffered an ankle injury in the first half of that game and the fear was that he would be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

However, Yale coach Tom Williams said he was told that Talerico could be cleared to return to practice next week.

Staying on the subject of the offensive line, freshman Ben Carbery was seeing extended action as the starting right tackle in Tuesday's practice. Roy Collins is still listed as the starter and was in there for long stretches at the same practice but Williams has been talking about getting Carbery some time in a game. He did see play a few snaps in last week's loss to Lehigh and perhaps this is the week Carbery's playing time increases.

"It is time for him to get a chance to play," Williams said. "He has earned it. We think he is an emerging player. We want to get him out there, let him play."

Finally some good news on injuries.
What is the matter with frosh Coyne? He seems to have been out of action for a long time?
Has frosh Hutchinson left the team for good?

Coyne has been dealing with concussion like symptoms and hasn't been ruled out for the year but they gave his number to another DL which is not a sign that they expect him to suit up.

I don't think Hutchison left the team, he merely will be sidelined with an eye injury for the rest of the season.
