Bulls starting quarterback B.J. Daniels, who missed the Louisville game with a shoulder injury, is improving, but remains questionable heading into the Thursday night game against West Virginia.

USF starting quarterback B.J. Daniels, who missed last week’s game with an injury to his throwing shoulder, remains questionable heading into the Thursday game against West Virginia.

Daniels who suffered a bruised AC joint against Miami on Nov. 19,  was able to practice this week, and was seen throwing the ball around during the lone practice open to the media.

“I feel good, real good,” said Daniels. "It was exciting to get back out there, be able to move around a lot. I’m still limited, still trying to just make sure I'm 100 percent when it comes to game time. Right now I'm just focused getting treatment and making sure I'm taking it nice and easy."

The Bulls junior quarterback is listed as questionable for the Thursday night match-up with the Mountaineers, and when asked what his chances were of playing, Daniels couldn’t give a definite answer and

"It's in God's hands right now," said Daniels. "I'm really trying to do everything I can physically to put myself out there to get treatment and therapy and things like that, but right now I'm not sure."

Daniels did say he his shoulder has improved a lot compared to last week.

“I do feel better, a lot better,” said Daniels. “Friday was my first time throwing during pre-game warm-ups, so between then and now, I’ve made a lot of progress.”

The Bulls, who are 5-6 have gone to six straight bowl games and hope to extend that streak with a win. Daniels, who is 16th nationally with an average of 296 total yards per game, gives them their best shot of winning, and know the importance of a victory.

“It’s big and there’s a lot riding on this game, we want to be bowl eligible, get another Big East win” said Daniels. “And more importantly it’s the senior’s last home game, so we definitely want to go out with a bang, and end the regular season on a good note.”

Whether or not Daniels will play is up in the air, but the QB is doing everything he can to get back on the field.

“I’m pushing every day,” said Daniels. “I’m doing everything I can, but like I said it’s in God’s hands.”
