News:Centarius Donald, who has been dealing with a knee injury, is listed as probable for Saturday's match up between UL Monroe and MTSU, USA Today reports.
Analysis:Centarius Donald has been cleared to play for the first time since injuring his knee four weeks ago in the first quarter of the season-opening upset win over Arkansas. He has a lot of room to make up to match the Warhawks' current leading rusher, Jyruss Edwards, but should serve as a nice compliment to the junior, who current has 287 rushing yards on 64 carries.
News:Centarius Donald will not play against Auburn on Saturday because of a lower body injury, the USA Today reports.
Analysis:Centarius Donald was injured in the upset of Arkansas in which he had a pair of rushes and a pair of receptions (one for a touchdown). Couch Todd Berry said the junior may miss more than one game.
News: Louisiana-Monroe running back Centarius Donald is out for the remainder of the season with what is being called a lower leg injury. Donald had come on lately, rushing for 296 yards in the last two games he played.
Analysis: Donald was just starting to drum up some fantasy hype but is now gone for the season. Look for the Warhawks and Kolton Browning to pass even more.
News: Louisiana-Monroe running back Centarius Donald has had some good games this year and looks to be starting to separate himself from the rest of the crowd in the Warhawk backfield. Donald finished the game against North Texas with 11 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown.
Analysis: The Warhawks don't run much, but, when he gets the touches, Donald can do some damage.
News: Somewhat uncharacteristically, Louisiana-Monroe rode their ground game to much success in their win over Troy with Centarius Donald and Jyruss Edwards combining for over 200 yards. Donald led the charge with 119 yards and a touchdown while Edwards was good for 88 yards and a score.
Analysis: Even though they performed well this weekend, the fact that the team doesn't normally run the ball this much and that the two backs split carries mean they should be avoided in most leagues.
News: Last year Louisiana-Monroe tailback Centarius Donald had 66 yards rushing, but against Grambling State he rumbled for 144 yards and a score on just 12 carries.
Analysis: Donald is a bigger back for the Warhawks, but don't be fooled by this performance as it was against a FCS opponent.
