MANOA (KHNL) -- Warrior football fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Hawaii quarterback, Colt Brennan, returned to practice, Monday morning.

But only as an observer.

Brennan, suffered a concussion, Saturday night against Fresno State, that literally knocked him out of the game.

And now, coaches and doctors will see if he's fit to play in Friday night's contest, at Nevada.

As loose and care free as ever, Colt Brennan, spent the morning's practice in sweats.

No helmet.

No throwing.

''I feel fine. It was a good shot. Obviously, it got the best of me," said Brennan.  "But, I've felt great the past couple of days. I felt fine."

This hit by fresno state linebacker, Marcus Riley, early in the fourth quarter of Saturday's victory -- left Brennan motionless on the Aloha Stadium turf for more than a minute.

''Do I think he did it on purpose? Absolutely not. Do I think any negative feelings for this guy? Absolutely not. I mean, he played a great game. He hit me solid and unfortunately he hit my head solid and my head hit the ground and it knocked me out cold."

Interestingly, Brennan says, he's been through worse.

''I've had a concussion in Pop Warner and that was way worse than this. For this being my second one, it definitely wasn't as bad as the first one."

Hawaii's 37-to-30 victory keeps the Warriors' record perfect on the season.

But, will Brennan be back to help keep that streak alive, this Friday against Nevada?

Head Coach June Jones says, he'll decide on game day.

''Yeah, all the way to game time, it will be," Brennan said.  ''Hopefully, Friday, I will get cleared. That's what I'm waiting for."
