Sounds like Coach Taggart let it slip that Ahman Ross has quarantined for WEEKS despite never testing positive.
Per @FAUFootball's @CoachTaggart: only 5 out of the ~20 players that would've been inactive vs. #USF, will remain inactive for this Saturday's contest against @CharlotteFTBL. Those 5 players are in quarantine from contact tracing. No positive #COVID cases within #FAU Football. pic.twitter.com/wlJa820b2W— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) September 28, 2020
DeltAlumnus saidChris Reynolds still hurt?Posted On: Sep 28th 2020, 9:05 PM
I have heard he is 50/50 this week.
FAU currently has the 3rd longest active winning streak in the country with 7.
Local Owl saidJust downloaded my tickets. I'm excited to go to the game but the importance of the game feels lost. I know it is to the university , coached,and players. But to me, it feels so different.

We should be favored in every remaining game outside of Marshall, which gives us a chance to sell a 14-15 game streak going into next off season.
Easy to market that to potential fans, who might be hungry for live sports after this year.
I look at this season as a chance to keep building momentum and show we are more than Lane Kiffin.
A lot of young guys will get work on defense that will make a major difference in 2021 and 2022.
Defensive Coordinator Jim Leavitt said he is a massive threat. Leavitt is also worried about Charlotte's wide receivers.
