Rouse Set To Return

The injury bug has hit the Fresno State Bulldogs early this season. Fresno State will be glad to know their running back Robbie Rouse will back on the field. Check inside to see how Rouse has recovered and get the latest on the Bulldog injuries…

With three days of practice before leaving for Oxford, Mississippi, the Bulldogs are evaluating their injuries. One player recovered and ready to play is running back Robbie Rouse. Rouse discussed how he feels headed into this week.

"I feel well rested," said Rouse. "I feel refreshed. I just feel good… getting ready for Ole Miss and getting back into the rhythm of it."

The Fresno State running game did not suffer without Rouse however, with A.J. Ellis carrying the ball 29 times for 165 yards and two touchdowns against Utah State. Rouse commented on Ellis's big performance.

"A.J. played a great game," said Rouse. "He's been working hard. He got his chance and he took full advantage of it. He had a good game, a very good game."

Heading into Mississippi, Rouse is confident with his current health and is ready to play. Rouse explained how he feels going into the game.

"I feel real ready," said the running back. "I wanted to play against Utah State, but I just have to get rested up. So now coming into this game I'm very ready to play Ole' Miss."

The ‘Dogs watched three starters go down with an injury last week against Utah State. Starting guard Andrew Jackson is out this week with a high ankle sprain. His status is week to week on when he will return.

Rashad Evans and Lorne Bell, however, could possibly be ready as soon as this Saturday. Both players practiced with full pads Monday, and they are being closely evaluated. Coach Pat Hill commented on the status of Evans and Bell.

"They worked out today," said Hill, "But they didn't do all the drills…hopefully they'll be back. I don't know yet."
