The Rainbow Warriors should have a better understanding today about defensive tackle Saui Matagiese’s knee injury. It was feared that he suffered ligament damage.
He will undergo an MRI in Salt Lake City. He is expected to stay with the team the remainder of this 10-day trip. If he is unavailable to play against Navy, freshman Kennedy Tulimasealii will be promoted to his spot.
Matagiese is one of the undisputed leaders of the team. His story — a Kauai native who relinquished a scholarship from Portland State to walk on at UH — is inspiring to those with college-football dreams.
