With heartbreaking news reported by The Fresno Bee tonight that senior WR Devon Wylie's foot bone bruise might be a whole lot more serious, the Bulldogs have to prepare for Saturday's huge WAC opener at Utah State without the fastest player in school history.

Wylie had 2 catches for 39 yards, including a 28-yard leaping touchdown between two defenders (pictured above courtesy of our Cary Edmondson) in the Bulldogs' 28-14 victory over Cincinnati.

The injury is not a good sign for an offense with just two other experienced WRs -- Jamel Hamler and Rashad Evans -- but if there's any position on the field positioned with enough depth to make up for injury, wideout might be the one. Speed wise, true freshman Jalen Saunders is the first thought in mind, but he's only played one college game.

Do you think someone can step in and fill Wylie's shoes? If so, who? If not, what's your prediction for Saturday's game?
