WVU Football to Likely be Without Key Offensive Contributor at UCF

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – With pressure to get things turned back around, the WVU football team could be without one of its impact players on Saturday at UCF.

When asked for a health status check during his weekly press conference, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown let the media know that wide receiver Hudson Clement will likely miss the game this week. Brown characterizes the Martinsburg native as “doubtful” after he was seen wearing a walking boot on the sidelines in the second half of the loss to Oklahoma State.

Clement did not record a catch in the first half against the Cowboys, but did recover a fumble early in the game. He caught two balls for 59 yards and a late go-ahead touchdown in Houston the week before. Clement has 12 receptions for 298 yards and four touchdowns overall on the season and earned a scholarship after a breakout performance in a win over Duquesne.

Brown did sprinkle in some positive news concerning Clement too, saying he did not break anything and will definitely not be out for any significant period of time.

While the Mountaineers will be without Clement, offensive lineman Tomas Rimac should be back in action and kicker Michael Hayes, who was seen being attended to after a kick on Saturday, just encountered cramps and is fine.

West Virginia will travel to Orlando, Florida to meet UCF this Saturday. Kickoff is set for noon ET and the game will air on FS1. WVU Football is currently considered an underdog.
