UNLV quarterback Omar Clayton (bruised knee) practiced this week, but his status for this Saturday's game against Hawaii is unclear.  The good news is Clayton's MRI came up negative.

I wouldn't count on Omar playing this week, but it doesn't sound like he will be out long.  Expect Mike Clausen to get the start.

UNLV quarterback Omar Clayton left Saturday's contest against Oregon State in the fourth quarter. Coach Mike Sanford classified the injury as a sprained knee, but there was no significant damage.

While it is not considered serious, Clayton's status for next week's game against Hawaii is unknown.  Right now we recommend keeping him out of your lineup.

According to UNLV coach Mike Sanford, quarterback Omar Clayton's knee is about "90 percent". Clayton missed the last three games of the 2008 season because of a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

Clayton's level of participation this spring is yet to be determined. Sanford knows he can't push his star quarterback's recovery just to get some work in this spring. Clayton is a solid candidate to emerge as a top quarterback this fall.
