MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Warrior football team took off to the Big Apple on Tuesday night.

After Tuesday's final practice at home, it's crystal clear who'll be taking the snaps come this Saturday.

Bryant Moniz practiced for the first time since he suffered a head injury in the USC game.

He took most of the snaps on Tuesday, but did so without a helmet.

Still, the coaches say the junior signal caller will be starting on Saturday against Army.

"He's been fine, the doctors and the trainers in all of us of course care about everybody's health, we've just been real conservative, he didn't have headaches, any of the symptoms from concussions, but we wanted to be careful," Head coach Greg McMackin said.

Warrior offensive coordinator, Nick Rolovich said the quarterback rotation will not change for this weekend's game.

Brent Rausch is the back-up, followed by Shane Austin, as both took equal reps at practice.

The Warriors take the field against Army at West Point on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 a.m., Hawaii time and our own Mike Cherry is with the team and he'll be filing reports all the way up through the game.
