Tailback Brandon Yakaboski and offensive lineman Casey Bulyca have been lost for the season due to injury, coach Tyrone Willingham announced today.
Both will have knee surgery in the coming weeks.
Bulyca had started every game this season at right guard. Willingham said he will likely be replaced by Ryan Tolar, perhaps with center Matt Sedillo in reserve.
Meanwhile, safety Darin Harris (concussion) remains out. TB David Freeman remains iffy with what is now thought to be a high-ankle sprain. And the lone good news may involve receiver D'Andre Goodwin, who is "close" to returning ... perhaps Saturday.
