Houston Cougars injury report: Ta’Zhawn Henry, Mannie Nunnery should be ready

The Houston Cougars are entering week two of the college football season, and they are already a bit banged up heading into the next matchup against Texas Tech.

Despite a handful of players dealing with injuries, head coach Dana Holgorsen on Monday said he expects all his players to be fine for Saturday’s game against the Red Raiders.

“Everybody that played in the game should be available to play (against Texas Tech), including Mannie Nunnery, who didn’t make the trip,” Holgorsen said.

Nunnery, a sophomore linebacker, was held out of Houston’s game against UTSA with a hand injury, Holgorsen told reporters after the game against the Roadrunners.

Senior defensive lineman Derek Parish, who did play against UTSA, did so with a cast after he had surgery on his hand on Sept. 1 after breaking a small bone during pass-rushing warmups, Holgorsen said. Parish is expected to have the cast on temporarily but will continue to play, the head coach added.

Running back Ta’Zhawn Henry was also limited against the Roadrunners after starting in the game. On Monday, Holgorsen said Henry could have played more snaps against UTSA, but Holgorsen was happy with how running backs Brandon Campbell and Stacy Sneed ran the ball; so he opted not to push Henry.

“Everybody should be fine,” Holgorsen said. “Good to go, ready to go.”
