A former three-star prospect out of Alaska’s North Pole High School, near Fairbanks, Wright has six catches for 49 yards this season in a situational role. He has appeared in two of five games. Rice has gone 2-3 (1-1 C-USA) on the season and though Wright’s missing time won’t be absolutely devastating to the team’s hopes for the season, depth is depth and losing any could prove to be a blow.

Campus Sports will update Wright’s recovery from his injury as any new information becomes available.

Rice takes a trip to Boca Raton this weekend to play the Florida Atlantic Owls on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 2:30 p.m. ET.
