Nicks, Dings, and Bruises

A quick look at who's spending time in the ice tubs...

Starting LT Dace Richardson (Jr.) continues to be out as he recovers from offseason knee surgery, and he is expected to be out for at least another week. Starting RT Kyle Calloway (So.) has shifted from the right side of the line to take Richardson's place.

Second-string LT Bryan Bulaga (Fr.) is questionable for Saturday's game with a shoulder injury.

Starting C Rafael Eubanks (So.) is nursing a sore foot, but should be back at practice soon. He is still expected to start this Saturday.

Reserve RT Alex Kanellis (Jr.) is still receiving treatment for post-concussion symptoms, and we'll know more later this week. He should be considered "out" for Saturday.

Reserve WR Paul Chaney Jr. (RFr.) is out for Saturday with a toe injury, and he will most likely miss the Syracuse game as well. Second-string WR Derrell Johnson-Koulianos (RFr.) will replace Chaney as a kickoff returner.

Starting WR Trey Stross (So.), who missed last weekend's scrimmage with a sore hamstring, is expected to start against NIU.

OL Rob Bruggeman (Jr.) continues to recover from major knee surgery and is questionable to return this season. Bruggeman was listed the second-string C at the time of his injury this spring.

Reserve LB Jeff Tarpinian (RFr.) is still recovering from a back injury and is out for Saturday.

Second-string QB Arvell Nelson (RFr.) and second-string CB Bradley Fletcher (Jr.) are both out with judgment sprains, while starting WR Dominique Douglas (So.) and reserve WR Anthony Bowman (So.) remain out indefinitely with ruptured retard tendons.

[UPDATE: Second-string DT Karl Klug (RFr.) will miss 4-6 weeks after foot surgery. Jesus.]

good grief, this is what we look like at the BEGINNING of the season? and we go 12 weeks without an off week?

that looks more like a midseason update. these guys better get healthy soon. love the Douglas/Bowman lines.

I'm hoping the majority of those are a case of the coaching staff being conservative (no way!) and holding guys out as a precaustionary measure. Better to have them sit this week than against Wisconsin.

buckethead: I doubt it. Most of the injuries are surgery-related, and a lot look to last through the Syracuse game as well. The only instance where I can see the coaches being more cautious than normal is Bulaga. Other than that, the guys with tweaks are going to line up and go.

In that case... fuck.
