Quick Hits: Lansanah day-to-day after hit

STORRS, Conn. - Head coach Randy Edsall insisted Sunday afternoon that middle linebacker Danny Lansanah, who was hurt in the third quarter of the Huskies' 38-0 win over Maine Saturday night, is doing well and could potentially be ready for next week's game at home against Temple.

Lansanah, who finished tied with linebacker Lawrence Wilson for a team-high seven tackles, was tripped up from behind by an unnamed Maine offensive lineman with 1:13 to go in the third period Saturday. He was helped off the field and appeared for post-game interviews wearing a boot on his right foot.

"He's in for treatments this morning and like I said, he's doing well and we've got another practice this afternoon," Edsall said by conference call Sunday. "We'll find out what he can do today and if he'll do more on the practice field today."

Edsall rejected any kind of ideas as to whether or not adjustments will be made next week in preparation for the Owls, which may include heavy playing time for back-up Aaron Bryant or, in an alternate scenario, the insertion of Ryan Henegan as the middle linebacker.

The head coach has continued to maintain Henegan is day-to-day after suffering an apparent knee injury during camp. The senior linebacker did not dress for either of the team's first two games, instead yielding his role to Wilson.
