News: Angel Santiago
missed a couple days of practice after being hit in the thigh but returned on Monday, HudsonValley.com reported.
Analysis: Angel Santiago
would seem to be in line for the starting job due to A.J. Schurr's hamstring problem that has prevented him from seeing any practice time so far in training camp. As long as the thigh injury doesn't affect him going forward, expect him to start on opening day.
News: A.J. Schurr
has missed time in training camp with a hamstring injury, HudsonValley.com reported.
Analysis: A.J. Schurr
has missed most of training camp with the injury and is just now getting back on the field, albeit very limited limited. Angel Santiago is next up except he's missed sometime himself after being hit in the thigh.
Coach Mark Whippled confirmed on Wednesday that he will decide on a starting quarterback sometime this weekend, according to Mass Live.com.
Thursday's scrimmage looks likely to decide the battle between Blake Frohnapfel
and A.J. Doyle. Whoever wins should not yet be on the radar of fantasy owners.
News: Munchie Legaux
said his knee is feeling fine, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Analysis: Munchie Legaux
, who suffered a severe knee injury last September, said his knee is about 90-95 percent healthy after three days of fall practice. Legaux will still have to unseat sophomore transfer Gunner Kiel in order to start the season opener against Toledo on Sept. 12.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "it wouldn't be a surprise" if Joel Stave
started for Wisconsin and Tanner McEvoy rotated in afterward.
In other words, the Journal Sentinel is suggesting that the Badgers might use Joel Stave
for passing plays and McEvoy as a runner. We're skeptical of the viability of this -- Stave is a bad passer -- but the competition between Stave and McEvoy is evidently too close to call right now. There's still time for one to pull ahead or fall behind, though.
News: Michael Brewer
remains listed as a co-starter with Mark Leal on the team's updated depth chart, the Roanoke Times reports.
That Michael Brewer
hasn't distanced himself from Leal at this point is somewhat concerning, if it is in fact true. The team could be using the dual listing to continue creating competition in practice. Brewer remains the heavy favorite to start the season opener against William & Mary, but with limited upside to begin with, he is not worth drafting without a formal recognition he will take the team's first snaps of the season.
News: Everett Golson
has been named the starter for Notre Dame's opening game against Rice, the South Bend Tribune reports.
Analysis: Everett Golson
has officially regained his starting role after being suspended for all of last season. It has been reported that Brian Kelly was not pleased with the other quarterbacks on the roster and decided that Golson would be the best fit for the team going forward. Golson was one of the key factors that led to the Irish making it to the BCS Championship Game in 2012 before getting handled by Alabama. Bringing back a dual threat option will give the Irish an added element on offense, something they lacked last year with Tommy Rees at the helm.
News: Keenan Reynolds
was named to the Walter Camp, Davey O'Brien, and Maxwell Award preseason watch lists.
Analysis: Keenan Reynolds
was a force in 2013, passing for over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns and rushing for over 1,300 yards and 31 touchdowns. If he stays healthy, there's no reason he can't duplicate the performance again in 2014.
News: Devin Gardner
is expected to be the starting quarterback for Michigan's Sept. 30 season opener, Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Coach Brady Hoke said what everyone already assumed Tuesday, suggesting that Devin Gardner
is on track to be fully recovered from his foot injury. Opening against Appalachian State could be a recipe for a monster week for everyone in Michigan's offense, and Gardner will be poised to be one of the better college fantasy quarterbacks this season if he can stay healthy.
News: Chandler Whitmer
remains locked in a tight battle for the starting QB job, the Hartford Courant reports.
Analysis: Chandler Whitmer
is in competition with sophomores Casey Cochran and Tim Boyle for the starting spot. UConn coach Paul Diaco said "if we had to (make the decision) today, it would be very hard."
