Wyoming running back Woods could potentially return in 2018, Bohl says

Dona€™t write off Trey Woodsa€™ 2018 season just yet.

Wyoming head coach Craig BohlA previously saidA that Woods, who led the Cowboys in rushing in 2017, would miss the upcoming season with a shoulder injury that kept him out for most of spring camp. Wednesday, Bohl said Woodsa€™ prognosis has improved.

a€œTherea€™s an opportunity he may be back,a€ Bohl said. a€œInitially, we thought that he for sure would be out for the year, and he may be back. Whata€™s also interesting is this year will be the first year a player can play four games and still preserve that redshirt year. So wea€™ll see where hea€™s at on that calendar.a€

Bohl was referring to a new NCAA ruleA announced this monththat Division I football players can participate in up to four games without forgoing a year of eligibility. So, should Woods fully recover late in Wyominga€™s 2018 season, he could play in up to four games and still count the year as a redshirt season. That would give him three remaining years of eligibility, the same as if he sat out the whole season to heal from the injury.

a€œHe has had surgery, and so wea€™re just waiting on his recovery,a€ Bohl said. a€œHea€™s a little bit ahead of where we thought hea€™d be. He certainly wona€™t be ready the first game, but as the season goes along, we feel like hea€™ll be ready to go.a€

Woods did not redshirt before playing last season. He was recruited as an athlete and spent his first fall camp as a linebacker. Woods was moved to running back and wound up starting for Wyoming in the final nine games of the season, rushing for 474 yards and two touchdowns on a team-high 133 carries (3.6 yards per carry average).
