The Warriors’ best pass rusher — defensive end Beau Yap — will miss at least the rest of spring practice after suffering a fracture in his right foot, head coach Norm Chow confirmed today.
Yap underwent surgery this week.
He suffered the injury during defensive drills.
It is not known if he will be ready when the Warriors open training camp in August.
The Warriors have struggled with their depth this spring. Iuta Tepa, a transfer from UCLA, recently underwent back surgery. Hunter Thomson has been bothered by a groin injury. Interior linemen Siasau Matagiese, Moses Samia and Calen Friel are restricted from contact drills while recovering from injuries this spring.
The Warriors are on a one-week hiatus because of UH”s spring break. The next spring practice is Monday.
