Tyler sat out 7-on-7 drills

About how he’ll play on Saturday even though he sat out 7-on-7 drills yesterday because of tenderness in his right (throwing) hand, Tyler said:
“Definitely.” (HA)

HA Note: “He received medical clearance to practice last Friday. Yesterday, with his right hand wrapped in a thin layer of bandages, he threw passes during warmups. But just before the Warriors were to break off into 7-on-7 passing drills, Graunke went to the training area. He unwrapped the bandages. The trainers then applied a thick ice pack to Graunke’s right hand.”

Tyler pointed to the bottom side of his thumb and said that the pain is:
“mostly on the inside. If I move my thumb toward my fingers, it’s fine. Away from it is when it hurts.” (HA)

HA Note: “He also said there is pain in his right wrist.”

About Rolo saying that he would receive “double treatment” on his right hand yesterday, Tyler said:
“I’ll make it triple treatment.” (HA)

Tyler said that after he had problems with his grip in warmups:
“I knew I needed an extra day of treatment and therapy.” (HA)

“I thought I was going to go today, but it just didn’t feel right gripping the ball.” (HSB)

About how Tyler understands their system, Mack said:
“He’s been in (the system) for four years. It’ll come back faster for him. I think he’s going to be fine.” (HA)

HA Note: “Rolovich said Graunke needs the practice time to bond with the receivers. Because of academic issues and the injury, Graunke has participated in nine full practices since Aug. 4, the first day of training camp.”

About how Tyler needs the practice time, Rolo said:
“The familiarity you get with your receivers in practice is what he needs.” (HA)

Agreeing that he needs the practice time, Tyler said:
“I need to get out there and practice with the guys for the timing and camaraderie. We need to be on the same level, the same page … like we were in the second half against Weber (State).” (HA)

About how he knows Tyler well, Tomey said:
“I know him very well. They have a skilled, tough quarterback who had a lot to do with the season they had last year.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “UH quarterback Tyler Graunke is a graduate of Salpoint Catholic High School in Tucson, Ariz., the same school Tomey’s children attended when he coached at Arizona.”
