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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
News: Tavarreon Dickerson
is expected to contribute to the Tulsa offense, the Tulsa World reports.
Analysis: Tavarreon Dickerson
, who is back on the field after suffering a collarbone injury in the spring, is competing for the starting running back job. Even if Dickerson is not the starter, the coaching staff still expects him to factor into the offense this season.
