Gunner Romney Injury

Two of BYU’s top wideouts will be sidelined for Saturday night’s matchup with No. 9 Baylor. Both junior Puka Nacua and senior Gunner Romney will likely sit this one out. In a press conference earlier in the week, BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said that the players’ statuses would be determined closer to game time. shows that 60% of BYU’s returned receiving yards came from Romney and Nacua

Nacua, a promising NFL prospect, hurt his right ankle and wore a boot for BYU’s lopsided victory over South Florida last week. Romney, who is also being tracked by the NFL, missed that game with an injury and also won’t play on Saturday.

Both were BYU’s best receivers in 2020 and are expected to be great quarterback Jaren Hall’s primary targets in 2022. Two of Nacua’s scores versus USF came before he went down with an injury, including a 75-yard run on the opening play. Nacua concluded last season with 805 receiving yards and was tied for second on the team with six touchdown catches.

Mitt Romney is currently in his fifth year as a member of the BYU football team. He has scored 10 touchdowns while on the field for the Cougars. Romney has 767 yards and six touchdowns in the breakthrough season of former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson in 2020. He has a career average of 16.2 yards per reception.

With them out of the lineup, BYU will have to rely more on the run game, even though the Cougars’ offensive line is the team’s greatest strength. In a 38-24 loss last season in Waco against the Bears, the squad managed just 67 yards rushing on 24 attempts. Christopher Brooks, a Cal transfer and BYU tailback, had a breakout performance in his first game against USF, rushing for 135 yards and a touchdown on just 13 carries.

Three freshmen, freshman Chase Roberts, redshirt freshman Kody Epps, and sophomore Keanu Hill, will be relied upon to help the Cougars replace the vacuum left at receiver. BYU’s junior tight end duo of Isaac Rex and junior Dallin Holker, both of whom are considered strong NFL prospects, may get more attention in Romney and Nacua’s absence.
