West Virginia football coach Neal Brown said Tuesday afternoon that junior defensive end Taijh Alston could return to action as early as late November as long as there are no setbacks with his injury rehab.
“Taijh is really progressing well in his rehab,” Brown said. “We’re going to open his conditioning this week, hopefully, we can get him maybe where he can practice in the next two weeks if he doesn’t have any setbacks.”
Alston sustained the injury before WVU opened up its abbreviated camp this summer. At the time Brown estimated that Alston would miss the first half of the 2020 season.
“Coming back from an Achilles injury he’s ahead of the curve,” Brown said. “Our hope is we can get him some action later in November.”
Alston missed all but two games last season due to a knee injury he suffered at Missouri.
