We're hopeful by the end of the week that he will be," Holtz said on the Big East's weekly coaches teleconference. "There's no doubt his mobility was hampered a little bit last week. Having a couple days off, going (Sunday) in shorts and having the opportunity to continue to treat it, I think it will continue to get better."
