Notebook: Reynolds, Black Knights on mend, bowl practice schedule

Mike Reynolds left it all out on the field in Army’s 17-10 win over Navy.

Coach Jeff Monken said the senior cornerback was in the training room after the game, getting treatment after his interception and three pass breakups in the victory.

“He had about three different things that were bothering him after the game,” Monken said earlier this week. “This week will be good. We are only going to lift and those guys come over on their own in between studying.

“They are preparing right now for finals and really cramming for those exams. We are going to let them have the week to rest and get ready, get in the training room. The lifting will help work out some of the soreness and kinks. That was a physical game on Saturday.”

Army will hold its first practice since the Army-Navy game on Saturday morning. The Black Knights will practice Sunday night and Tuesday morning before departing for Fort Worth, Texas and the Armed Forces Bowl. Monken said Army will likely practice Wednesday (special teams heavy) and possibly Thursday. While, Houston, Army’s Armed Forces Bowl opponent, hasn’t played since Nov. 23.

“We have all of our sights set on Houston,” Monken said. “They are a great team. Very talented. It will be a great challenge. They’ve had essentially four weeks to get ready for the bowl game and we would have had 4 days of practice before we play the game. Four days and four weeks is a big difference. …We essentially could get five practices in.”
Players begins final exams Friday night. Exams continue Saturday at noon, Saturday night, Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon and Monday night, Monken said.
