Why Isn't Robbie, "The Franchise", Rouse Playing?

Robbie Rouse hasn't seen a single snap in the Fresno State football scrimmages this fall. It's{}a very curious happening. They've said it's purely precautionary, but it definitely creates questions. Is he injured? Is he out of shape? In the dog house? Any number of things, but as it turns out, he's just that important. Head coach, Tim DeRuyter, going as far as calling Rouse "The Franchise".

The Fresno State season, and home opener, is less than two weeks away, September{}1st, against Weber State.
