New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (thigh) participated in Tuesday's practice.

Rose injured his thigh in Saturday's showdown with Troy. That was his first game of the season -- a sports hernia surgery in August stole the first three games of the campaign from the 6-foot-1, 184-pounder. Barring a setback during the week, it does not appear that this current thigh injury will keep Rose from suiting up and playing against Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III is day-to-day with a thigh injury.

Thankfully, this thigh injury is said to be unrelated to the sports hernia surgery that forced Rose to miss the first three games of the season. He returned to action against Troy on Saturday, rushing for 56 yards on 12 carries before being lifted with this latest health concern. The 6-foot-11, 184-pound junior's status for this weekend's upcoming showdown with Louisiana-Lafayette should become more clear over the course of the practice week.

Playing for the first time this season, New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (hernia) rushed for 56 yards on 12 carries in Saturday's 52-6 loss to Troy.

Rose underwent sports hernia surgery in August and he spent the first few weeks of the season in recovery mode. In his return on Saturday, he averaged 4.6 YPC with a long run of 21 yards. The 6-foot-11, 184-pounder should see an increased workload as the Aggies work him back into the fold this autumn. A year ago, he rushed for 1,651 yards and 12 touchdowns.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III is expected to make his 2016 debut against Troy after healing from sports hernia surgery.

Rose is one of the most explosive runners in the country and has been sidelined for the first three weeks of the season. Head coach Doug Martin added a bit of information, stating "I wouldn't expect Larry to carry the ball 30 times, but I think certainly we can get a lot out of him and hopefully use him as much as we need to." Wednesday will be the first time Rose practices with contact. The Aggies have accounted for 154.7 rushing yards per game without Rose.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (sports hernia) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Kentucky.

This will make three consecutive games in which Rose has been sidelined. He is still recovering from a sports hernia suffered in August, one which required surgery. HC Doug Martin admitted that his team's play has predictably suffered without the 5-foot-11, 184-pound star. "Our other running backs I think will handle the load, but we don’t just get as many explosion plays as we did with Larry," he said on Monday. "That’s the thing that’s slowing our running game down a bit right now." Rose racked up 1,651 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns a year ago. This year, the combined efforts of Rose fill-ins Xavier Hall and Jason Huntley have amounted to 20 carries for 123 yards and a pair of touchdowns through two games.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (sports hernia) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Kentucky.

Rose has sat out the first two games of the 2016 season following his August surgery to repair a sports hernia. Jason Huntley started in his place during those contests and has managed just 54 rushing yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. Last season, Rose rushed for 1,651 yards and 12 touchdowns. It is not yet known when the 5-foot-11, 184-pounder might be able to return to action, but this week's showdown with the Wildcats looks unlikely.
Sep 13 - 3:08 PM

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (sports hernia) is doubtful for Saturday's game against New Mexico.

This isn't necessarily unexpected, as the surgery in mid-August was expected to steal his first two games. Regardless, Rose III provides the Aggies with their most viable chance to win any given game. The 5-foot-11, 184-pound back posted 1,651 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns in 2015. Without him, NMSU is a talent-less, identity-less offense. Jason Huntley will start again if he can't go. Rose rushed for a career-high 260 yards with three touchdowns against the Lobos last year. "I don't know how much (Rose) will practice this week, if at all," HC Doug Martin said.
Sep 6 - 9:11 PM

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (sports hernia) is doubtful for Saturday's opener against UTEP.

Rose went under the knife to fix up his sports hernia in mid-August. At the time, he was being deemed "questionable." Now dropped to doubtful. The 5-foot-11, 184-pound back sliced and diced his way to 1,651 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns for the 2015 campaign. Brandyn Leonard, Jason Huntley and Gamar Girdy could all potentially see extended carries so long as Rose is unable to take the field.

New Mexico State junior QB Tyler Rogers was arrested Friday on a misdemeanor battery charge.

Rogers’ girlfriend is the alleged victim. A verbal spat at a party apparently turned physical, with police reporting that the woman "downplayed the incident and said that it wasn’t really anything and that the altercation did not get physical and didn’t consider Mr. Rogers grabbing her arm as being a physical altercation." It is unclear if the woman is cooperating with authorities. "We are letting the process run through," NMSU head football coach Doug Martin said. "Since it is a misdemeanor, there isn't a suspension coming forth right now."
Aug 24 - 4:58 PM

New Mexico State redshirt senior QB Tyler Matthews has left the program.

"He decided he didn't want to play," said HC Doug Martin. "I wish the kid would have stayed but we have to move on." During his collegiate career, Matthews has lost out on starting jobs to Trevone Boykin and (following a transfer to Southern Miss) Nick Mullens. He transferred over to New Mexico State over the winter. With him out of the competition, one of junior Tyler Rogers, JUCO transfer Conner Cramer or redshirt sophomore Nick Jeanty will start at quarterback for the Aggies this season, though it has not yet been announced which might earn that gig.
Aug 23 - 4:04 PM

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia.

Rose is being listed as questionable for New Mexico State's opener against UTEP. Last season, the 5-foot-11, 184-pounder rushed for 1,651 yards and 12 touchdowns while catching 30 passes for 382 yards and a pair of scores. He is a legitimate fantasy threat when healthy, but potentially interested owners should monitor his health through the final two weeks of August to make sure that he will be ready to roll for the regular season.

During the Los Angeles Rams' local prospect day on Saturday, New Mexico State DB Winston Rose ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds.

Rose already had a smooth 4.45 seconds logged during his Pro Day, but he bested that mark on Saturday. After all of his work was completed, the 5-foot-11, 177-pounder met with a number of Ram coaches, including DB coach Dennard Wilson, DC Gregg Williams, ST coordinator John Fasell and HC Jeff Fisher. Rose reflected on the whole experience, saying, "It couldn’t have gone any better. It was very exciting. I was a little nervous. Once I felt comfortable after the first drill, everything was in place. Overall, I felt good with my performance. It was a great day. I feel like that could be home." The Rams are thin on picks at this point after they put them all into a barrel and rolled them over to the Titans in exchange for No. 1, but Rose could be in play for them on Day 3.

New Mexico State DB Winston Rose will participate in the Los Angeles Rams’ local prospect day this weekend.

"I’m excited," Rose said. "It’s another opportunity to display my talents. It’s a job interview." The 5-foot-11, 177-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds and added a 10-3 broad jump and a 36-inch vertical leap at his Pro Day workout. His ancillary testing numbers were all superb. "My skills, obviously my speed and my athleticism and my overall ball skills," Rose said. "Winston Rose as a person, I’m going to help a team. I have length and quickness. I want to improve on being consistent." Said his agent J.D. Ogilvie: "Winston has everything you look for in a starting cornerback. From his length, his agility, speed, the numbers he put up at his Pro Day are top tier in every single category. ... He has the natural skill set of a starting cornerback."

Southern Miss graduate QB Tyler Matthews transferred to New Mexico State.

It's been quite the journey for Matthews. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound QB started his college career as a four-star recruit with TCU in 2012. After taking a redshirt as a freshman, he fought it out with Trevone Boykin for the starting job. That didn't go so well. Matthews then transferred to Southern Miss and sat out another year due to NCAA transfer rules before finding himself embroiled in yet another dogfight for playing time, against Nick Mullens. Mullens barely beat him out during August camp, but proceeded to post a monster season. That brings Matthews to New Mexico State. In his college career, he has just 10 pass attempts, but he should jostle for the 2016 starter role along with senior Tyler Rogers, JUCO transfer Connor Cramer and Matthews' younger brother, Cameron Matthews. It would be a stinger if baby brother beat him out to end his football career.
Jan 28 - 5:39 PM

New Mexico State DB Winston Rose accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Rose initially joined New Mexico State in 2013 as a JUCO transfer, having previously played his ball at Los Angeles Valley College. For the 2015 campaign the 6-foot, 174-pounder recorded 51 tackles (2.0 for loss), six pass breakups and one blocked kick.
