News:Tre Roberson left Saturday's game against Massachusetts in an ambulance after suffering a severe leg injury, ESPN reports.
Analysis:Tre Roberson's season is very much in doubt. It's a crushing injury for Indiana, because Roberson looked quite good to this point in his second season. He finished the game 6-of-11 for 98 yards, one touchdown and one interception while running for 105 yards and two touchdowns. Cameron Coffman replaced him.
News:Tre Roberson completed 26-of-36 passes for 280 yards and a touchdown, while rushing seven times for a mere 19 yards (2.7 YPC) and another score as Indiana edged Indiana State 24-17 on Saturday.
Analysis:Tre Roberson appeared in total control of the offense, a change from the run-first player he exhibited in 2011. The Sycamores actually opened the scoring with a 54-yard touchdown run, but Roberson responded three plays later with a 71-yard TD strike to Shane Wynn to knot up the score. He later led scoring drives of 74, 66, and 75 yards, the last one a short touchdown run by Roberson. Yes, the outing occurred against an FCS opponent, but he showed enough poise to be considered in many fantasy leagues.
