HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - UH quarterback Bryant Moniz has had two concussions in his football career. the first he suffered in junior college and really has no memory of. The second came this past Saturday against Boise State and the details he says are sketchy.
"What I do remember is getting up and dizzy and stuff. I knew I kept playing and I actually didn't know how I ended up not playing. I was playing and the next thing I knew I was sitting in the front of a bunch of doctors," UH quarterback, Bryant Moniz said. "I threw a few balls today and my passes was a little bit off but it's probably cause I didn't throw in 3 or 4 days. Tomorrow I'll be 100 percent and I'll get my throws back and I'll be 100 percent."
Moniz started the day without his jersey. But eventually got within the quarterback ranks. Third string quarterback Brent Rausch is among the recovered signal callers. To insure his fractured pinkie doesn't prove to be a problem any more he's throwing with his fingers taped. Again while Moniz may be feeling healthy doctors have the final say come game day which leaves Shane Austin as a possible starter for Nevada. After coming in for Moniz, marked Austin's first collegiate game.
"You get in there you get hit around. You get woken up a little bit and welcomed to college football. So now I'm ready to get back in there you know. But we'll see, we'll see on Saturday. Lot of things I need to work on, some things we're thrown off my back foot," UH 3rd string QB Brent Rausch said. "UH you always see that on ESPN, a quarterback throwing on the back foot seems like it's always a pick on the highlite reel."
"Feels good, it's just a little frustrating you know. The ball isn't going exactly where I want it yet but it's getting better. I'm trying different ways to tape it. It's better grip on the ball, it's getting better," Shane Austin said.
