The Quakes tweeted that fullback Kip Colvey will be joining the team’s USL affiliate, Reno 1868 FC, for upcoming games on Wednesday and Saturday. This means that Colvey will not be on the game day 18 for the 2017 season opener.
This certainly implies rookie Nick Lima won the team’s game day fullback position, either as a starter or sub. It also raises some questions for which team Colvey will be playing his games this season, a possible bench-player with San Jose or starter with Reno. My money is that Colvey will spend a lot of minutes in Reno, similar to Tommy Thompson’s stints with Sacramento Republic last season.
