Billy Napier offers updates on Chris Thomas Jr., Nay'Quan Wright, Richard Gouraige and Jaydon Hill
Billy Napier met with reporters on Friday and updated the status of several Florida players.
Napier said CB Jaydon Hill is currently “not able to participate. I think a little bit of that is to be determined based off his recovery, the rehab process. About OT Richard Gouraige, Napier said it was nothing major, and he anticipates getting Gouraige and S Dakota Mitchell back shortly.
Napier said he will “keep the details in house” regarding DT Christopher Thomas’ return to the team. Napier added that he’s got a couple eligibility things cleared up that enabled it. Thomas was removed from the roster in June, but has since returned after he played in just one game last season, the Gasparilla Bowl.
Napier also shared his thoughts on RB Nay’Quan Wright, and said he’s one player that Napier respects most on the roster because he lives life with integrity. Wright is on schedule to return, Napier said.
“He is who he says he is, he’s very consistent in his attitude,” Napier said. “His actions match up with his words. He’s a proven player, he’s been productive in a game setting here. This place means something to him, he cares about his teammates. I think Nay’Quan is one of the players on our team that has a voice that does have impact.”
