PROVO, Utah (AP) - No. 7 BYU has a few injuries to deal with this week before Florida State visits.

Offensive lineman Braden Hansen has an injury to his left knee and is doubtful to play against the Seminoles on Saturday at Lavell Edwards stadium.

The Cougars' offensive line was already banged up, so coach Bronco Mendenhall says nose tackle Jordan Richardson will be moving from defense to offense. Mendenhall says Richardson has enough talent to make the switch and the Cougars need him more on offense than defense right now.

BYU defensive back Scott Johnson may have a concussion after taking a knee to the jaw Saturday in a 54-3 win at Tulane. He also had a concussion during training camp, but Mendenhall says the injuries were different and Johnson could return in time for Saturday.
