PROVO — Perhaps some didn't notice, but BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum apparently injured his ankle after his final play of Saturday's 19-13 loss to Utah. BYU coaches weren't able to confirm anything regarding the extent of his injury, with Sunday typically being a rest day for the program.
“There’s nothing confirmed yet on any of the injuries,” said BYU coach Kalani Sitake during Monday's press conference, while mentioning BYU's starting quarterback will undergo a more extensive evaluation on his injury later on Monday. As per Sitake's policy, he will not comment on players' injuries unless they're season-ending.
BYU offensive coordinator Ty Detmer expressed optimism Tanner Mangum will be available to play against Wisconsin this Saturday during his segment on "The Coordinators Corner," which is broadcast on ESPN960.
