Tight end Metuisela ‘Unga is suffering from an ankle injury that will sideline him for the rest of the season, coach Nick Rolovich confirmed.
‘Unga, who is expected to undergo surgery, might be eligible for a medical hardship that would allow him to return as a fifth-year senior in 2018. He has never redshirted since joining the Warriors in 2014.
Rolovich also confirmed ‘Unga and slotbacks Kalakaua Timoteo III and Davine Tullis were held out of Saturday’s game against CSU because of disciplinary reasons. Rolovich said he did not announce the disciplinary actions in postgame interviews because he had not gathered all the information at that point.
Timoteo and Tullis are expected to practice today, but it has not been determined if they will be on the travel roster for Saturday’s road game against Nevada.
