MARTINSBURG — After fighting an injury and missing a game due to suspension, WVU junior wide receiver Tevin Bush has decided to enter the transfer portal, head coach Neal Brown announced at his weekly press conference Tuesday.
“He’s has a rough few months,” Brown said. “Tevin is a good kid. He’s been dealing with some lingering foot and heel issues. He is not available to play.”
Brown said he spoke with Bush — who came to Morgantown from New Orleans, Louisiana — Tuesday morning when he expressed his intent to transfer.
“But he and I met today and he made the decision to enter the transfer portal at this time,” he explained. “I support that decision — it preserves his redshirt year. He wants to go closer to home and that’s it. I support him and we will help him achieve that goal.”
Brown also announced an unfortunate season ending injury for redshirt sophomore and linebacker VanDarius Cowan, who transferred to WVU from Alabama.
“VanDarius Cowan suffered a knee injury, he will have surgery (and) he will be out for the rest of the season,” Brown said.
Other injury updates:
— Cornerback Keith Washington is still questionable for Saturday’s game against Oklahoma
— Quarterback Austin Kendall threw a little bit Monday in practice and will throw again Tuesday but is still deemed questionable. “We will not play him unless he is 100 percent,” Brown said.
— Running Back Alec Sinkfield, who went out with an ankle injury, practiced Monday and is listed as probable for Saturday.
