  Fresno State quarterback Jake Haener suffered a high ankle sprain when he was knocked out of the Bulldogs' 45-17 loss Saturday night at No. 7 USC, and it is not a season-ending injury. Haener, who was injured in the third quarter when sacked by Trojans defensive tackle Solomon Byrd, had X-rays at the stadium before returning to the Bulldogs bench on crutches later in the third quarter. "I think he caught my leg and rolled it and I heard a little pop," Haener said, making his way off the field after the game. "We have to get back and take a look at it, but it's not broken so it doesn't require surgery or anything like that, so that's good news. High ankle sprains sometimes can take a little bit longer so we'll just have to see how it goes," coach Jeff Tedford said. - Fresno Bee

  Jordan Mims ran for two touchdowns in the first quarter and Fresno State used a fast start to cruise past FCS-member Cal Poly 35-7 in a season opener on Thursday night. Mims sandwiched a pair of 1-yard TD runs around a 13-yard scoring run by Nikko Remigio to put the Bulldogs up 21-0 in the first quarter. Jake Haener completed 35 of 41 passes for 370 yards and two second-half TDs for Fresno State. Mims finished with 76 yards on 15 carries. He added a 19-yard TD catch in the third quarter.

  Wednesday was the Fresno State Bulldogs' 13th practice of Fall Camp and their 28th practice of the year dating back to the spring under Jeff Tedford's new coaching staff. But it was the first practice of 2022 for star offensive lineman Dontae Bull. Bull has started 25 of the Bulldogs' 31 games at left tackle over the past three seasons. He was one of the five Mountain West O-Linemen selected to the preseason all-conference team in July.

But an offseason procedure had sidelined him shortly after the end of the 2021 season. Bull observed the team's first 12 preseason practices from the sideline - then suddenly suited up on Day 13. Bull's practice appearance was the first time that Fresno State's four new defensive assistant coaches saw the veteran O-Lineman lined up against them. "I don't know a whole lot, other than what we've seen from past performances," new defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said of Bull. Only defensive players and coaches were available to the media on Wednesday. "He's been out for quite a while. He's got to work his way back into shape. I'm looking at my defensive guys in practice so I'm not really that concerned about who is on offense. In a few more days I'll have a better feeling about where he's at. I know it was great to see him out here." - 247sports.com

  2022 PRESEASON ROTARY LOMBARDI AWARD WATCHLIST: David Perales, Fresno State, Sr DE,...Perales enters his sixth year of collegiate football in 2022. Transferring to Fresno State from Sacramento State in 2019, Perales has made an impact on the defensive line for the past two seasons. Being named a team captain in 2021, Perales stepped up as a leader on the defense while recording the most tackles on the defensive line with a single-season career-best 40 stops. Perales also had single-season career-best marks in tackles for loss (13.0) and sacks (7.0) a season ago. His 13.0 tackles for loss accounted for 72 yards lost, a team-best yards lost. A force on the line, Perales had seven-straight games with at least 1.0 tackles for loss from Sept. 24-Nov.25 last season. - Fresno State Football

  Senior Tyrone Sampson Jr. has had a few opportunities to secure a spot in the Bulldogs' offensive line rotation, but the former 4-star recruit in the 2018 recruiting class is putting together the pieces this fall. Sampson has played primarily as a center, but has lined up with the No. 1 offense at right and left guard in fall camp. A big piece to that equation has been nutrition, and his weight. "Tyrone has changed his body," offensive line coach Saga Tuitele said. "Tyrone has done a great job. Heck, he inspired me. But he has changed his body. He's in good shape and he's working his tail off." Sampson said his diet had resembled that of a typical college student.

But most aren't 6-foot-3 and 305 pounds, and don't spend hours in a day on the practice field or in the weight room. "That process has been going on since about January, when we came back," he said. "I got on a plan with (assistant athletics director for sports performance Andy Ward). He explained to me what I should be eating and what might not be so good to eat. The things that I should be eating really shook things up. I started seeing little changes in my body here and there. I'm trying to stay consistent with it. "It definitely feels different. I feel like I can go more full speed. I can last longer on drives. I just feel better moving play to play, moving in space. I feel like I'm moving a lot better than I was last year." - Fresno Bee

While at Cal, Remigio was a four-year contributor on offense and special teams (2018-21). The native of Orange, Calif. played in 36 career games with 16 starts and finished with four-year totals of 1871 all-purpose yards and eight touchdowns - including 97 receptions for 903 yards with seven touchdown grabs, 20 kick returns for 549 yards, 39 punt returns for 344 yards and one touchdown, 14 rushes for 75 yards rushing, and five tackles. - Fresno State Football
