Holliday said his team must prepare for both QBs.
"Perry, he's a guy they think can beat you more with his feet," Holliday said. "They called pass, but on the 2-point conversion to tie the game [at 21], he took off and scored. You see where he gets on the perimeter at times. He's older, a senior, but the other guy played all last year."
The depth chart on UAB's game notes, which haven't accounted for the latest injuries, is a little out of whack.
How much? Every defensive end on the two-deep is expected not to play. Granted, there are three - one starter is listed as backup at the other end - but they're all out.
Starters Chris Rabb (concussion) and Diaheem Watkins (shoulder) are expected to be out. Chris Walton, listed as Rabb's backup, has another ankle injury. Rabb is listed as Watkins' backup.
On the other side of the ball, left guard Roscoe Byrd broke his leg last week in the Blazers' 24-21 loss to Middle Tennessee, so he is out indefinitely.
The depth chart has been updated for previous maladies, the story of which is long enough to drape a stretcher. That starts with five defensive backs - safeties Calvin Jones, Jay Davis and Greg Maclin, plus cornerbacks Kelton Brackett and LaMarcus Farmer.
Starting linebacker Destin Challenger and backup Tevin Crews have played just five games because of shoulder injuries. Running back Bashr Coles has long since been out with a spring knee injury.
Among the receivers, McGee said Nyiakki Height may play after missing a week with a concussion, but Jamari Staples is questionable or worst.
And in the worst insult of all, reserved tight end Neal Gray dislocated an elbow before the MTSU game. Before the game, in warm-ups.
Holliday said he's seen a lot of strange injuries, but that's a new one to him. Then again, "I had a guy blow out a knee in the tunnel one time," he said.
