Senior quarterback Aramis Hillary did not dress for practice Thursday, but he was no longer wearing the neck brace he sported earlier in the week and Coastal Carolina football coach Joe Moglia reiterated that no determination on his status for the Chanticleers' game at Gardner-Webb will be made until Saturday.
"It's still the same. It's still day to day," Moglia said after practice. "... He's been at every meeting, he's been at every practice, he's been able to take mental reps every place that he's been, so the fact that he's missed three days of actually taking reps, that shouldn't affect him.
"The key is for him to be ready Saturday. The key is not for him to be ready today. It will day to day."
Redshirt-freshman Alex Ross has taken the first-team reps at quarterback and would make his first career start if Hillary is unable to go.
"I think Alex is a pretty good quarterback," Moglia said. "He's done well, and frankly this is a great opportunity for him to get out there and show what he can do."
