Temple edge rusher Hasson Reddick accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Reddick was a key cog in Matt Rhule's defenses over the past few years. In fact, he leaves Temple as the school's all-time leader in tackles for loss. Not only that, but Reddick leads the FBS with 21.5 tackles for loss this season.

Temple senior QB P.J. Walker (leg) went 16-of-25 for 199 yards and two touchdown passes in a 34-10 win over Navy in the AAC Championship Game on Saturday.

Walker was in a walking boot earlier this week, but he didn't look any worse for the wear today. Temple, which lost to Houston in last year's AAC Championship game, saw things go down a little differently this time around, mostly because of their superb defense. The 10-3 Owls will learn which bowl they're headed to on Sunday.
Dec 3 - 4:01 PM

Temple HC Matt Rhule indicated that senior QB P.J. Walker (leg) will start against Navy in the AAC Championship Game on Saturday.

Walker sported a walking boot earlier in the practice week, but barring an unforeseen setback, he should be able to play on Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound gunslinger has thrown for an even 2,700 yards with an 18/12 TD/INT ratio in 12 games this season.
Dec 2 - 7:24 PM

Temple HC Matt Rhule indicated that sophomore RB Ryquell Armstead (undisclosed) will try to play against Navy in the AAC Championship Game on Saturday.

Armstead was deemed doubtful earlier in the practice week due to an undisclosed injury suffered at the beginning of November, but per Rhule, he is likely to at least try to play in Saturday's conference title game versus the Midshipmen. While the 5-foot-11, 205-pound sophomore could potentially see the field, expect Jahad Thomas to see the majority of carries here unless Armstead is able to truly get rolling.
Dec 2 - 7:20 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that Temple senior RB Jahad Thomas could find a role as a third-down back in the NFL.

"Thomas lacks classic next level size," Pauline writes, "but has the ability to line up as a third down back on Sunday." The size refrain is one you can expect to hear as a demerit throughout the leadup to the draft. CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler made that same knock on the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Thomas last October, though he also referred to him as a "jitterbug athlete." This season, he has jitterbugged his way to 856 yards (4.7 YPC) and 12 touchdowns while catching 30 passes for 402 yards and six additional scores. He went off for 1,262 yards and 17 touchdowns in 14 games last season.
Dec 2 - 7:09 PM

Temple HC Rhule said on Tuesday that "if we played today, [redshirt sophomore WR Ventell Bryant] would play.

Fortunately, the Owls don't play Navy until Saturday, giving Bryant more time to heal his arm injury. Expect him to start.
Nov 30 - 1:47 PM

Temple sophomore RB Ryquell Armstead (undisclosed) is doubtful to play in Saturday's AAC Championship game against Navy.

Armstead has been dealing with a nagging undisclosed injury since a November 5 win over UConn. He did suit up against ECU over the weekend, but the results were less than desirable, as the 5-foot-11, 205-pound sophomore rushed for only 35 yards on 10 carries. Should Armstead be unable to play on Saturday, the brunt of the workload would fall to Jahad Thomas. Even if Armstead does manage to suit up, Thomas figures to have a huge role to play in this weekend's affair.
Nov 29 - 2:16 PM

Temple senior QB P.J. Walker (leg) expects to be able to play in Saturday's AAC Championship game against Navy.

Walker was in a walking boot following Tuesday's practice, but barring an unforeseen setback with his health, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound senior should be ready to roll for Saturday's title game. He appeared in all 12 regular-season contests this year, throwing for 2,700 yards with an 18/12 TD/INT ratio.
Nov 29 - 1:46 PM

Temple redshirt senior OLB Hasson Reddick (ankle) is not likely to play in Saturday's game against Tulane.

This according to HC Matt Rhule during a Tuesday presser. If Reddick is, indeed, unable to take the field versus the Green Wave on Saturday, it would be a major blow to the Owls' defensive efforts. This season, the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder has registered 46 tackles (18.0 for loss), 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over 10 games played. Avery Ellis and Jacob Martin figure to see increased work this weekend if Reddick sits this one out.
Nov 18 - 8:24 PM

Temple HC Matt Rhule termed sophomore RB Ryquell Armstead (undisclosed) as day-to-day.

While Armstead rushed for 133 yards against UConn prior to getting last weekend off on bye, the 5-foot-11, 205-pound sophomore was injured (on the first play, to boot) in the contest. Said Rhule, "He played a great game and played through it." Should Armstead be unable to play in Saturday's game against Tulane, that would mean a heavier workload for Jahad Thomas.
Nov 18 - 8:18 PM

Temple sophomore RB Ryquell Armstead rushed for 133 yards on 20 carries in Friday's 21-0 win over UConn.

No touchdowns for Armstead. Indeed, no rushing touchdowns for the Owls at all, as P.J. Walker ended up tossing three touchdown passes to account for the totality of Temple's scoring. For his part, the 5-foot-11, 205-pound Armstead averaged 6.7 YPC with a long run of 22 yards. This was the sophomore back's third game of at least 100 yards rushing. He has reached that mark in two of his last three games.
Nov 5 - 11:19 AM

Temple senior RB Jahad Thomas rushed for 151 yards on 17 carries in Saturday's 34-13 win over Cincinnati.

Thomas managed a modest 56 yards rushing in last weekend's win over USF, but he shook off that ho-hum performance to rebound against the Bearcats on Saturday. He averaged 8.9 YPC with a long run of 56 yards. While the 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior has rushed for 100-plus yards in two of his last three games, those are his only two contests cracking the century mark in seven games played. Both Thomas and fellow Owls back Ryquell Armstead (54 yards rushing, two touchdowns on Saturday) make for respectable fantasy options in a pinch.
Oct 29 - 6:39 PM

Though Temple redshirt senior OLB Haason Reddick has a small frame, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline sees him as a potential "7th round choice for a team projecting him as a 3-4 OLB/designated pass rusher/special teams ace."

"While scouts ignored Reddick entering the season I saw enough skill this summer to stamp him as a free agent. Based on the results midway through the season Reddick could end up a late round pick," Pauline wrote. Coming into the year, Reddick was an All-American Athletic Conference Third Team selection by Phil Steele. Reddick leads the conference in sacks (6.5) and TFL (15.5). "He’s an intense defender who continually makes positive plays and blows up offensive games plans," Pauline wrote.
Oct 28 - 6:57 PM

Temple senior RB Jahad Thomas rushed for 56 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries in Friday's 46-30 win over South Florida.

Thomas took a backseat to Ryquell Armstead, here, with the latter receiving 20 carries to the former's 16. That carry-disparity is understandable, as Armstead out-rushed Thomas 210 yards to 56. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder might not have led the team on the ground, but his two touchdowns at least somewhat salvaged what would have otherwise been a snoozer of a fantasy performance. While Thomas has rushed for more than 70 yards just twice in six games, he has been a consistent visitor to the end zone, having now scored 12 total touchdowns.
Oct 21 - 11:00 PM

Temple sophomore RB Ryquell Armstead rushed for 210 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Friday's 46-30 win over South Florida.

Armstead and Jahad Thomas both scored a pair of rushing touchdowns in this one, but Armstead was the far more effective back. He averaged 10.5 YPC to Thomas' 3.5 YPC. Among the fine runs that the 5-foot-11, 205-pound Armstead dropped on USF, a 76-yard touchdown run near halftime in which he out-quicked two would-be tacklers at the line of scrimmage and sprinted to the end zone barely tou. That would be his longest run of the evening. He also scored from 42 yards out with 3:53 remaining in the third quarter. Through eight games, Armstead has rushed for 613 yards and nine touchdowns.
