There is a possibility inside linebacker Julian Gener might be available to play this week.
Gener suffered a fractured fibula against Rice, the Warriors’ fifth non-conference opponent of the season. He has missed five games — all against MWC teams — while recuperating. He was running sprints on the sidelines during practices last week.
Gener was the Warriors’ second-leading tackler (33 stops) when he suffered the injury.
After transferring from Mount San Antonio College in 2013, Gener played in three games before suffering a season-ending elbow injury that required “Tommy John surgery.” He has missed 14 of 22 UH games because of injuries.
