Mychal Sisson took part in his first practice with the team on Tuesday to test his repaired broken ankle and the expectation was that Sisson would be questionable against the San Diego St. Aztecs this Saturday and be ready to go against the TCU Horned Frogs on Nov. 19. On Wednesday, Sisson was able to practice in full pads and now according to head coach Steve Fairchild, Sisson has been upgraded to a game-time decision:
"We'll see," Fairchild said. "We'll talk with (head trainer) Terry DeZeeuw. I'd be very surprised. ... Terry's being cautious, Myke's being aggressive. The right things will happen. I think TCU and Air Force are more realistic goals. But we'll see."
"I thought about that yesterday," Fairchild said. "I thought even if we got a few snaps out of him that would be kind of a nice thing. But we don't want to put him out there until he's ready and we don't need to make that decision right now."
Sisson mentioned that he felt no pain after his Tuesday's practice and on Wednesday practiced with the scout team and was part of 7-on-7 drills. Even with the improvement of Sisson's ankle it seems unlikely that he will play on Saturday, but Fairchild is not going to close the door entirely until game-time.
