' ankle injury is at this time. Edwards was not listed on Tulane's two-deep depth chart following the spring game.
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.
News: Tommylee Lewis
has been limited in practice with a foot injury, and he's likely to be limited in Thursday's scrimmage as well, according to Huskie Wire.com.
This does not seem to be a big concern right now. Tommylee Lewis
had 86 receptions for 715 yards last season as Jordan Lynch's top target, and he'll again be the No. 1 target for whoever is under center for the Huskies this year.
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: Keith Harris Jr.
is back in the running back mix for the Huskies after missing time last season with an ankle injury, according to Huskie Wire.com.
Harris averaged 6.8 yards per carry over the first five games of last season before being injured. With Cameron Stingily (undisclosed) out for the first four games, he may become Akeem Daniels' primary backup.

News: Jamaal Williams
has been named to the Doak Walker Award (best running back) Watch List, the Maxwell Award Watch List, and the College Football Performance Awards Running Backs Watch List.
Analysis: Jamaal Williams
, who will miss the opener due to violating team rules, ran for over 1,000 yards last year nad seven touchdowns, even while seeing his touches vary from game-to-game. Even in an offense with a renewed focus on the long ball, we look for a big season out of Williams after he returns.
Rob Rice - out (Knee)
, RB, CINCY
News: Rob Rice
suffered a season ending knee injury, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Analysis: Rob Rice
, a walk-on, only accumulated four career carries. His loss should not drastically alter the teams plans heading into the season.

said he feels like he's back to where he was before he tore his Achilles, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Johnathan Gray
was having a fine season before being injured on Nov. 9. The Longhorns won't want to wear him out so he will split carries with Malcolm Brown, but it's good to here he is full of confidence heading into the season.
Maryland's Diggs Healthy In Camp
, WR, MD
News: Stefon Diggs
(leg) has been healthy in training camp after last year's season-ending broken leg and head coach Randy Edsall plans to make him a big part of the offense, the Washington Post reports. "We're going to utilize Stefon any way we can because of his ability," Edsall. "There are a lot of different things we can do with him because he is so talented."
Analysis: Stefon Diggs
played just seven games last year after breaking his right fibula. He sounds back to full speed this summer. With 11 touchdowns in 18 career games and 17.3 yards per reception last season, Diggs could be a difference maker but it's not clear he'll get enough targets in Maryland's deep receiver corps.
