"Snyder said he doesn’t expect any injured players who didn’t see action in the regular-season finale against North Texas to be available against Syracuse. But kick returner Powell, who has not taken the field since scoring a late touchdown against Texas and made an appearance at K-State’s weekly news conference with a boot on his left foot, did not rule out the possibility of playing in the Pinstripe Bowl. Wide receiver Tramaine Thompson, who was on crutches after suffering an injury against Baylor, was seen jogging to and from his car before practice and could also return."
I gleaned this from the Star and thought that it was interesting and positive. This would be a boon for K-State should these two make an unexpected appearance.
