Lingering foot injury to keep Rice’s top WR out vs. A&M

If Rice holds out any hope of an inexplicable upset of Texas A&M, they’ll need to be at full strength. Unfortunately for the Owls that won’t be the case, at least not offensively.

Thursday following practice, Jordan Taylor confirmed that he would, once again, be sidelined due to a lingering foot injury. The injury, which is described as a sprained left foot, has hampered Taylor for a month and will keep him out of the game against the Aggies.

Saturday will mark the second game to start the season -- the Owls had a bye in Week 2 -- Taylor will have missed. It appears the goal is to get the player healthy enough to play in the Conference USA opener against Old Dominion next weekend.

"[The team’s medical staff is] just trying to make sure it didn’t turn into anything worse,” Taylor said according to the San Antonio Express-News. “I’m ready to get back out there.”

Last season Taylor was far and away Rice’s leading receiver, topping the team with 55 receptions for 848 yards and eight touchdowns. The No. 2 receiver, Dennis Parks, totals were 29-508-3.
