The University of South Florida offense could get a nice boost in the regular season finale Thursday against West Virginia.

Coach Skip Holtz said Monday that sophomore receiver Sterling Griffin, who has been out since fracturing his ankle in a loss to Cincinnati on Oct. 22, could return against the Mountaineers.

Despite missing the last four games, Griffin still leads the team with 40 receptions and 492 receiving yards and is tied for second with two touchdown receptions. Griffin was on pace for the best statistical season for a receiver in program history prior to the injury.

The Bulls receiving corps also should welcome the return of senior A.J. Love, who has been out while dealing with a stress fracture in his shin.

As for USF’s other injuries, starting quarterback remains questionable with a right shoulder injury. Daniels was able to practice Sunday evening, but he’ll likely be a game-time decision Thursday. Sophomore Bobby Eveld would start against the Mountaineers if Daniels is unable to play.

The Bulls secondary has several players nursing injuries; defensive backs Tyson Butler (neck), George Baker (ribs) and JaQuez Jenkins (hamstring) all questionable. Starters Kayvon Webster, who missed the Louisville game after suffering a concussion on the final play against Miami, and Quenton Washington, who suffered a shoulder injury in the loss to the Cardinals, both are expected to play.
