Once a matter of conjecture, WKU now appears to be at full strength under center for its game Saturday against Morehead State.

Freshman quarterback K.J. Black returned to practice Thursday after a two-day absence due to a mild concussion suffered in Saturday's game against Troy.

Earlier in the day, WKU coach David Elson had said Black began suffering symptoms Sunday and had been held out of practice since. But, he said if Black practiced Thursday he'd be probable for Saturday's home finale.

Black's play stood out against the Trojans, especially in contrast to starting quarterback David Wolke. Black finished 10-of-19 for 149 yards and a touchdown in the 21-17 loss, while all three drives led by Wolke ended in turnovers (a Wolke fumble and two Wolke interceptions).

Elson did indicate Thursday his team's plan was to maintain Wolke's status as the starting quarterback.
