Marc Edwards - questionable (Ankle)
, WR, TULANE
News: Marc Edwards
missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury, nola.com reports.
It's unknown how serious Marc Edwards
' ankle injury is at this time. Edwards was not listed on Tulane's two-deep depth chart following the spring game.
With Christian Jones (knee) out for the year, Tony Jones
might see more targets in 2014.
Tony's teammate Christian caught 54 passes for a team-leading 668 yards while tying with Tony for the team lead of four touchdowns last year. In light of Christian's unfortunate injury, Tony will carry a bigger burden after finishing with 55 catches for 630 yards and four touchdowns last year. While the Northwestern offense probably won't provide Tony with a high ceiling, he should have a high floor as Northwestern's only proven wideout.
Trayion Durham - questionable (Foot)
, RB, KENTST
News: Trayion Durham
could miss all of preseason camp after needing a second surgery on his right foot, according to Stephanie Storm of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Analysis: Trayion Durham
missed spring practice with the foot issue, and his status for the start of the season, and perhaps longer, has to be considered iffy. For now, Durham is draftable in MAC-only and very deep leagues.
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.
News: Christian Jones
suffered a knee injury in camp and is out for the season, the Chicago Tribune reports. Jones had 54 catches for 668 yards and four touchdowns last season, and finished with his best game against Illinois, with 182 yards and two touchdowns.
This was a brutal day for Northwestern. They lost their most productive receiver from last season, and Venric Mark announced he was leaving the program.
Tyshon Dye - out (Achilles)
, RB, CLEM
News: Tyshon Dye
, who tore his Achilles tendon in February, is out for at least another week and remains in a walking boot, the Anderson Independent Mail reports.
Analysis: Tyshon Dye
redshirted last season after back and ankle surgeries, and is facing an uphill battle for carries in a deep but unsettled Tigers' backfield.
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.
New Mexico's Gongbay has Rape Charges Dropped
, RB, NMEX
News: Crusoe Gongbay
had his rape charges from an April incident dropped Wednesday, Yahoo Sports reports.
According to reports, Crusoe Gongbay
's reinstatement to the team will be up to Lobos' head coach Bob Davie and the athletic director. Gongbay was set up to be the Lobos' top rusher this year after his 591 yards rushing last season. If he is reinstated, it is likely the team will try to get him up to speed in order to see how he will fit in with this year's squad.
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.
Devin Lucien - doubtful (Head)
, WR, UCLA
News: Devin Lucien
left practice in an ambulance Tuesday afternoon after sustaining some sort of head injury, the Associated Press reports.
Mora could not provide reporters with information related to Devin Lucien
's injury following Tuesday's practice, stating only, "As always, we're going to be overly cautious with anything that has to do with the head, neck or spine." Lucien started three games as a sophomore last season and finished the year with 19 catches for 339 yards and two touchdowns. He was to this point in fall camp regarded as a strong candidate to start at wideout for the Bruins opposite Jordan Payton.
