Fort Hays State University senior defensive lineman Basil Bandy suffered a stinger on the first play of last Saturday's loss to Northwest Missouri State University. Bandy came back into the game and made two tackles, but wore a sling after the 49-14 loss and again during the team's weekly news conference Tuesday.

"As I made contact with the running back, my whole arm just went numb," Bandy said. "It hurt real bad. I didn't know if I had an arm or not. It's coming along real well. Hopefully I will be back next week or so. It's still partially numb."

Freshman wideout Isaiah Maxi (head) should play Saturday at No. 6 Missouri Western State University.

He has one catch for five yards. Junior wideout Ed Williams (stress fracture) could come this week, too.

Junior Tomasi Molesi has been out since the first days of camp with a leg injury. Molesi came in as a defensive lineman, but will move to guard to help out with the offense. Molesi is likely to return either Saturday or next week. Sophomore offensive lineman Jarred Stindt is out another week with a knee injury suffered in Week 2.

Communication key

Coach Chris Brown said coaches of all levels struggle with players communicating. In Brown's eyes, players communicate very well in their residence halls or apartments. On the football field, though, the Tigers are quiet.

"We have got to get those guys talking more on the field and communicating and understanding exactly what the call is," Brown said.

Scouting Missouri Western

Western, the defending conference champions, stands sixth in the MIAA in scoring offense at 40 points a game and third in scoring defense at 15 points per contest. Sophomore Raphael Spencer is second in the conference with 369 rushing yards. Senior Travis Partridge, coach Jerry Partridge's son, was first team all-MIAA last season. He stands ninth in passing efficiency and tenth in yards per game. He has completed 45 of 82 passes for 586 yards with a 7/1 TD/INT ratio.

Western leads the all-time meeting 11-10-1 and has won the last eight games. The Griffons collected a 21-3 victory in Hays last year.

"They are solid all around the board," Brown said. "They don't do a lot offensively and defensively, but they are good at what they do."
