Chris Nwoke Injury: Running Back Returns To Practice

The Colorado St. Rams received some good news early this week when starting running back Chris Nwoke returned to practice. Nwoke has been sidelined with an ankle injury that he hurt in the Rams season opening win against the Colorado Buffaloes, and he sate out the pat two games, both were loses.

Head coach Jim McElwain is stil in a wait and see mode about Nwoke's status against the Utah St. Aggies. Offensive lineman Brandon Haynes is excited to likely have Nwoke back in the lineup:

"It would be a huge thing," Haynes said of Nwoke's return. "It's encouraging because he's coming back fresh off the injury, so he'll be 100 percent. He'll be Chris Nwoke again, powerful, running downhill. He's gonna hit you in the mouth. It's going to be nice to have him back."

Getting Nwoke back in the lineup is huge, and with backup running back Donnell Alexander is listed as questionable with an ankle injury of his own the need for Nwoke in the lineup is huge.
