Jayhawks Getting Healthy For West Virginia

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – The good news for Kansas is that two of its best players are back.
The bad news is that even with wide receiver Tony Pierson and linebacker Ben Heeney on the field, the results haven’t been a whole lot different than they were when they were hurt.
Pierson played his first full game last week against Oklahoma State since sustaining a concussion in the Jayhawks’ Big 12 opener against Texas Tech, and ran for 87 yards, including a nifty 50 yarder down the sideline, in what still amounted to a 42-6 loss.
Heeney returned a couple of weeks ago from a knee injury that caused him to miss a pair of games, but the result against Texas was a humbling 35-13 defeat.
The Jayhawks will try to finally turn things around against West Virginia on Saturday.
