West Virginia put together an outstanding offensive performance against North Carolina State on Sunday. This performance came despite several players missing on offense.
Two starting offensive linemen were missing, left guard Michael Brown and right guard Josh Sills. WVU was also without wide receiver Tevin Bush, who had been one of the most productive offensive players through the first two games of the season. Despite all of this, the Mountaineers were able to pile up 44 points against the Wolfpack.
Well, it’s been confirmed by head coach Neal Brown that at least one of these players will be back. Tevin Bush has been reinstated and will be back in business for the trip to Kansas to take on the Jayhawks, who are coming off of a blowout win on the road against Boston College.
“His suspension is up. He will be with the team today,” West Virginia coach Neal Brown said during Monday’s Big 12 coaches teleconference, per WV Metro News. “He violated some team rules and paid the price.”

It’s still not clear whether or not Sills will return against Kansas. Neal Brown did confirm that Mike Brown will be ready to go against Kansas.

In the first two games of the season, Bush had 6 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown. He also added 15 rushing yards on three carries.
True freshman Winston Wright filled in admirably with four catches for 13 yards. It will be nice to have them both available moving forward.
It’s amazing how much can change in a week. Last week at this time it was unsure where any offense was going to come from. Now there are several players coming off big games, with Tevin Bush set to rejoin them.
