HONOLULU (AP) -Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan was sidelined by an injured right ankle Wednesday for the second straight day of practice, but he's hopeful of playing Saturday against Charleston Southern.
Wearing a light brace and using crutches, Brennan watched from the sideline as backup Tyler Graunke worked out with the first-team offense.
Brennan said he's ``dying to play,'' but the ankle still needs to heal. An MRI on Monday revealed no serious damage, he said.
``Every day, the ankle gets better and the swelling goes down, a little less pain,'' he said. ``I'm just trying to rest up as much as possible.''
Brennan was injured last Friday but still played Saturday, leading Hawaii to a 49-14 victory over UNLV. Even with his ankle swollen and discolored, the quarterback ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more in three quarters.
Hawaii coach June Jones was more confident of Brennan's recovery than his quarterback. Jones said Brennan will start Saturday for the 19th-ranked Warriors.
