Senior defensive end Garrett Crall and offensive right guard Logan Harris were among the four Cowboys selected by their teammates as team captains before the season started.

Crall, however, has been sidelined all season by a slow recovery from off-season surgery. Harris did open the season as a starter on offense, but has not played since the second game of the season because of a bout with mononucleosis.

Crall is not expected to travel with the Cowboys to Las Vegas for Friday’s game against UNLV.

“We will see what happens with Garrett Crall,” Bohl said in his Monday media session. “He just started to practice.”

Harris figures to in uniform, although he figures to have limited, if any, game action.

“I would venture to say he will make the trip,” said Bohl.

A week ago, the Cowboys listed true freshman Gavin Beerup and sophomore Ryan Marquez as the backups to quarterback Levi Williams. This week, Beerup is the only backup on the depth chart. Marquez remains the holder for placekicks.

Bohl said the 6-foot-5, 190-pound Beerup was limited during the preseason the result of a positive COVID test. He, however, has been getting in full workout activity in the last couple of weeks.

“(Brent Vigen) has done a good job with him,” Bohl said of the Cowboys assistant head coach/offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. “He is not as far along as what we’d life, but he has shown really nice capabilities to be a good quarterback. We have been running him with (the second team offense).”

And in other adjustments,

— Skyler Miller, a 5-11, 234-pound senior from Torrington, has moved ahead of Jahmarr Moore as the backup fullback to Parker Christian, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound redshirt freshman from Sheridan.

— Emmanuel Pregnon, a 6-6, 265-pound freshman from Denver, is listed as the backup at right tackle behind Frank Crum. Blayne Baker, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound sophomore from Sheridan, was listed in that role last week along with the backup at right guard. He remains the back up at right guard to sophomore Zach Watts, a 6-foot-5, 302-pound sophomore from Windsor, Co.

— Alex Brown, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound redshirt freshman from Spring Texas, was listed as a second backup at wide receiver a week ago, but has a shoulder injury that led to him being dropped from the depth chart.

— Cameron Smith, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound freshman from Parker, has moved ahead of Jack Boyer, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound sophomore from Arvada, Co. , as the backup at defensive end to Victor Jones, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound junior from Sacramento.
