PROVO, Utah >> Hawaii team officials said two Warriors players have been released from the hospital and were on the team charter flight Friday night after X-rays on their necks were normal.

The defensive tackles were taken to the hospital after being injured in apparent helmet-to-helmet collisions on consecutive series in the first quarter of a 47-0 loss to Brigham Young on Friday night.

Backup Geardon Hanohano was the first loaded on a backboard and carted off the field, but not before flashing a shaka.

The second player, starting defensive tackle Siasau Matagiese, was injured on the Warriors' next defensive series. After a lengthy delay, he too was placed on a backboard and carted off. He also managed a shaka.

BYU officials late Friday said starting running back Michael Alisa is likely out for the rest of the regular season. He is scheduled to have surgery today after breaking a bone in his right forearm in the first quarter. He finished with two carries for 12 yards.

Wish both players nothing but the best and a speedy recovery. UH is taking their licks now but, like Chow said, our time will come. Just be patient and continue to support the team. Right now is not the best of times but it will come. Just be patient.........main thing is our players recoup from their injuries.

Thanks goodness. I was especially worried about Hanohano after he kind of just collapsed. Glad they are ok.
