San Jose State focusing on getting healthy in bye week

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The San Jose State Spartans are looking to get healthy during the bye week after improving to 3-1 for the bye week.

The San Jose State Spartans have an outside chance to be the best college football team in the Bay Area this year. They nearly knocked off Stanford in Week 1, and have rolled off four straight victories since then. San Jose State rolled UC Davis and Colorado State, then went to San Diego State and edged the Aztecs, then shut out Navy in Annapolis. At 3-1, the Spartans seem to be poised for a great season.

Now at their bye week, San Jose State is looking to get healthy before the start of their conference schedule. Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group filed this report.

"We had five games in a row, and we played some really tough football teams. We're beat up a little bit," Spartans coach Mike MacIntyre said. "And that was a long trip. A lot of teams that play Navy, the week after, they always lose because they're so beat up with all the cut blocking, all the chop blocking and the physicality of the game. It's a perfect time for an open date."

San Jose State has several players that need to heal up. Linebacker Keith Smith has a sprained ankle. Wide receiver Jabari Carr suffered turf toe. Left tackle David Quessenberry and tight end Ryan Otten are suffering ankle sprains, and wideout Noel Grigsby has struggled through a shoulder injury. Keith Bendixen should be able to return from a dislocated kneecap.
