Great news all around, hopefully Taylor Walcott returns soon as well. Got this email - I assume it's a gogriz.com article.

COACH MYERS HAPPY WITH THE PROGRESS OF UM’S WIDE RECEIVERS

MISSOULA, MONTANA – One of the big question marks going into fall camp this year was at the wide receiver spot, and although the progress of some of the players at that position has been slowed down due to injuries, it should be a solid position in 2013.

Montana wide receivers coach, Torrey Myers, who joined the team this past spring, talked highly of the players that he oversees following today’s (Tuesday, Aug. 13) morning practice in Washington-Grizzly Stadium.

UM lost its top two receivers to graduation, in wide-out Sam Gratton (29-397-4 TDs) and tight end Greg Hardy (29-273-1), but return two of their top four guys there.

The two returning starters are Ellis Henderson, a 6-0, 185-pound sophomore, who is UM’s leading returning receiver with 23 receptions last season (which were the third most on the team), while junior Mitch Saylor, a 6-5, 222-pound junior was right behind him with 22 catches in 2012. Both of those players recently returned to action after missing a couple of days because of minor injuries.
