LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming coach Craig Bohl says quarterback Josh Allen continues to make progress in treating his injured right shoulder but his status remains day-to-day.

Allen injured his throwing shoulder during the Nov. 11 game at Air Force. He sat out last weekend's home loss to Fresno State.

Bohl says he's hopeful that Allen can play in this Saturday's season finale at San Jose State.

The coach says the sports medicine staff on Monday were encouraged by the progress Allen was making during treatment.

Backup quarterback Nick Smith started in place of Allen against Fresno State, completing 20 of 32 passes for 231 yards and a touchdown.

Bohl says he was pleased with Smith's performance.
