Utah State senior RB Devante Mays was forced out of Saturday's game against Air Force after just one carry due to a leg injury.

Mays was already nursing a leg ailment suffered against USC in the second week of the season, one which forced him to sit out the next week's contest with Arkansas State. While the 5-foot-11, 228-pound senior did manage one carry versus Air Force on Saturday, he went down injured after that lone tote of the rock and was in visible pain with a right leg injury. He had to be helped off the field and could not put any significant weight on the right leg. Details have yet to emerge as to the injury's severity. Should Mays be unable to play against Boise State this coming weekend, Tonny Lindsey will get the call.

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays (leg) is listed as the starter on this week's depth chart.

Mays suffered a leg injury in the third quarter of Week 2's loss to USC. He subsequently sat out Week 3's showdown with Arkansas State. The 5-foot-11, 228-pound back started out the 2016 campaign with a bang when he rushed for 208 yards and three touchdowns against Weber State in the opener. Prior to his injury against the Trojans, he had managed just 24 yards on eight carries. Mays and the Aggies will tango with Air Force this weekend.

Utah State QB Kent Myers completed 11-of-25 passes for 136 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Friday's 34-20 win over Arkansas State.

Myers entered the 2016 season with some nice low-grade hype, but it hasn't come to fruition on the field as of yet. The 6-foot, 195-pounder has thrown for fewer than 200 yards in two of three games, and in the lone outlier (against USC last weekend), he threw for all of 204. He will try to get on track against Air Force next weekend.

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays (leg) is not playing in Friday's game against Arkansas State.

Mays rushed for 24 yards on eight carries against USC last Saturday before being lifted from the game in the third quarter with a leg injury. HC Matt Wells called him a game-time decision on Monday, with that decision coming back in the negative. The 5-foot-11, 228-pound senior will next have an opportunity to take the field against Air Force on September 24.

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays is questionable for Friday's game against Arkansas State due to a leg injury.

The 5-foot-11, 228-pound Mays was knocked out of the USC game and has been on crutches. "Questionable," HC Matt Wells said. "We'll have more information back from our doctors after [Monday's] practice. But he'll be a game-time decision. Really day-to-day."

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays turned in a statistical no-show in Saturday's 45-7 loss to USC, rushing for 24 yards on seven carries.

Mays erupted for 208 yards and a trio of scores against Weber State in the season-opener, but he was unable to find similar room to work on Saturday. It didn't help that the Trojans pushed out to a 21-0 halftime lead, forcing the Aggies away from the run. The 5-foot-11, 228-pound Mays will try for better results in a home showdown with Arkansas State next Friday.

Utah State junior QB Kent Myers turned in a mostly listless performance in Thursday's 45-6 win over Weber State, completing 11-of-17 passes for 100 yards.

No interceptions for Myers, but also no touchdowns. The 6-foot, 195-pound junior averaged a paltry 5.9 YPA in this one. Despite the muted numbers, we expect Myers to ramp up-to-speed in fairly short order. He is going to have to step up next time out, at least -- the Aggies play USC a week from Saturday.

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays was magnificent in Thursday's 45-6 win over Weber State, taking 18 carries and spinning them into 208 yards and three touchdowns.

Mays averaged a stellar 11.6 YPC in the blowout win. The 5-foot-11, 228-pounder scored on a pair of 18-yard touchdown runs in the first quarter. A 66-yard scoring scamper shortly after the start of the second quarter provided to be the highlight from this immaculate performance. Last season, Mays rushed for 966 yards (5.9 YPC) and nine touchdowns. Playing in one of the best offenses in the Mountain West, he is a strong mid-to-late round fantasy prospect in deeper formats.

Utah State redshirt junior OL Jarom Ioane will miss the 2016 season due to a lower-leg injury.

Ioane appeared in 13 games along the line and also chipped in on special teams in 2015. The 6-foot-5, 350-pounder hurt his leg during the past practice week and has already undergone season-ending surgery. "He was right in the mix for a starting job, so I feel bad for that kid. But we'll have to move on with the O-line," said HC Matt Wells. He indicated that he was pleased with how the offensive line played during Saturday's scrimmage, even without Ioane on the field.

Utah State head coach Matt Wells says improving junior QB Kent Myers' consistency is the key to him becoming a star quarterback.

"Kent has played very well at times and just OK at times," he said. "It's up to me to try and get him to play at a high, high level every single week. So that one's on me." Myers platooned with a hobbled Chuckie Keeton for much of last season, putting great pressure on the former face of the Aggies' program. Now that Keeton has graduated, it's Myers' show. Expect a breakout campaign. The 6-foot, 195-pounder completed 121-of-199 passes for 1,593 yards and a 16/3 TD/INT ratio in nine games last year. A dangerous runner, he also had 85 carries for 460 yards and three scores.

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays bench-presses 425 pounds and has performed a 41-inch vertical jump.

The 5-foot-11, 228-pound Mays' vertical would have placed second among running backs at this year's NFL Combine. The former Texas JUCO product rushed for 966 yards and nine touchdowns last season. He and Kent Myers form a dynamic and highly underrated backfield.

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays boasts a 41-inch vertical jump.

That showing would have placed No. 2 among running backs at this year's NFL Combine. Mays can also bench 425 pounds and squat 515. In 165 carries last year, Mays posted 966 yards (5.9 per carry). The bulk of Utah State's offensive line returns, while Chuckie Keaton doesn't. The 5-foot-11, 220-pounder stands to benefit from both developments.

Utah State freshman DE Brady Holt is in critical condition following a weekend car accident.

Per the Utah Highway Patrol, Holt was thrown from his SUV after he had drifted onto the median and crashed into wooden spools at a construction site. He over-corrected and the SUV flipped. The 6-foot-7, 230-pound freshman was not wearing his seat belt at the time. His mom took to social media to update his status, writing, "Brady has been unconscious since they found him. This is what is most concerning to the doctors. They need him to wake up. We are praying for miracles for Brady. Thank you to all who have reached out to us, his sisters and our family. He is in the biggest fight of his life."

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco wrote that Utah State LB Nick Vigil is a "tough, hard-nosed player who will push for time right away [with the Bengals]."

The Bengals selected Vigil with pick No. 87 near the end of the third round. Not only does Prisco see him as a potential early contributor in 2016, he offered the prediction that the 6-foot-2, 239-pounder "will be a starter in 2017 for sure." The analyst also tagged Cincinnati's fourth-round pick of then-rapidly-sliding DT Andrew Billings as a gem, writing, "To get him in the fourth is good value. He can come in and take over when Domata Peko is done." Overall, Prisco was downright effusive in his praise of this Bengal draft class, awarding it a strong B+ grade.
