  Draft Scout by Conference

  As the weeks passed by and the doctor visits mounted, those closest to Gunner Romney worried the BYU wide receiver's season may be over before it began. Watching her husband lay in a hospital bed with a pain pulsating through his stomach, Sadie Romney knew his injury wasn't routine: a lacerated kidney that would ultimately require two months to heal before he would be cleared to play again. "It has been super sad, super hard," Sadie Romney said last week as she waited for her husband to make his season debut. "... When they kept pushing it back, I thought maybe he would come back next year. He still has the redshirt year. I know he would hate to do that but if it came down to it he would." Romney, a fifth-year senior, returned last Thursday after lacerating his kidney at the start of training camp in August.

For most of the last month, BYU's coaches have said Romney was close to returning and listed him as a "game-time decision." But for a while, the Romneys worried the injury was severe enough that it could have derailed his entire 2022 season. "It was a really serious injury," Gunner said on BYUtv. "It wasn't something we were taking lightly at all...Luckily we have had a lot of medical help and medical opinions on this." The injury itself happened on the second day of training camp. Romney caught a ball and fell to the ground. During the catch, he cradled the ball squarely on his kidney and the blunt force of the fall was absorbed by his stomach. During the play, a defensive back also fell onto him and pushed an added body weight onto the kidney. - Salt Lake Tribune
