BREAKING: West Virginia Will Be Without Rushel Shell Today Vs. Kansas

It’s not the end of the world, but something to watch.

West Virginia’s leading rusher, Rushel Shell, will be sidelined today against the Kansas Jayhawks, according to WVIllustrated’s Geoff Coyle.

The move to keep Shell out today is likely precautionary with West Virginia’s schedule getting tougher down the stretch, starting next week in Austin against the Texas Longhorns. Shell injured his ankle in the first half of last week’s loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater, and didn’t return after halftime.

Justin Crawford, Kennedy McKoy and Elijah Wellman will handle the ground game against the perennial basement-dwelling Kansas Jayhawks.
