CFB Injury Updates from Sat. Sept 25

I break down the injury news from this past weekend with notes on each player who may have been dealing with injuries.

A few notes about this list, being on it does not for sure mean a player is “injured”, but rather:

  • They may have missed the game due to a known injury (ok, this does mean they are injured), or missed the game for another stated reason
  • They may have gone out of the game due to injury and not returned (sometimes with an official announcement from the team)
  • They may have left the game but returned, or at least attempted to return (sometimes these guys end up banged up enough to miss future games)
  • They may have had a vague twitter mention about possibly being injured or leaving a game, so it’s something on my radar

I’ll continue to post any updates I see during the week, those will be added to daily updates as well as the injury database.

List of Potential Injury News from Sat Dec 12 (unless noted):

  • RB Tyler Allgeier, BYU – did not play for what was described as an illness, in postgame it was said “he’s not hurt, just wasn’t able to play in the game”, so sounds covid-related

  • RB Tank Bigsby, Auburn – went to the medical tent in the first quarter with what may have been a hip injury after landing on his side, was seen riding an exercise bike on the sideline, came back in for a carry but was then done for the day. He was later said to have been ruled out for the game with a lower body injury. On Sunday night he was described as questionable.
  • QB Seth Boomer, Tulsa – came in as a reserve after Zach Smith was hurt, he was hit throwing a pass near the end of the 3rd quarter on Thursday night and was taken off the field on a cart, in postgame his injury was said to appear “pretty significant”
  • QB Max Bortenschlager, FIU – in the third quarter he went to the medical tent but after being evaluated came out without a helmet and did not return
  • RB Rakeem Boyd, Arkansas – did not suit up for the game Saturday for what was speculated to be covid-related reasons
  • RB Christopher Brown, Cal – a surprise scratch announced by the team in pregame, he was reported to have a nagging injury that had made him a gametime decision on pregame radio, so it is not covid-related
  • RB Stephen Carr, USC – reported to have not practiced much last week, and was pulled early from the game after only one carry. On Sunday it was clarified that he took a knee to the back of the head.
  • WR Britain Covey, Utah – reported to have suffered a minor injury in practice last week, warmed up pregame but did not play
  • RB Devyn Ford, Penn State – he played the first drive of the game but did not appear to play again and did not come out for the second half, in postgame he was simply said to have “left with an injury”
  • TE Pat Freiermuth, Penn State – was not dressed in pregame, then in postgame it was shared he will be having season-ending surgery for an injury suffered against Ohio State the previous week
  • WR DeMarcus Harris, Kentucky – left the game in the first half and was reported to be out the rest of the game after taking a helmet to helmet hit on a pass attempt
  • WR JJ Holloman, FIU – after a pass attempt in the 2nd quarter he went to the medical tent and did not appear to return
  • RB Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota – in the 4th quarter on Friday night was seen holding his arm/hand on the sideline and did not play in late game series, in postgame he was said to have been banged up and he was held out by team trainers who were thinking long-term
  • WR Javon Ivory, Memphis – in the second quarter he walked slowly to the sideline after laying down on the field injured, in the second half he was on the sideline without pads
  • WR Racey McMath, LSU – in the 3rd quarter he hobbled to the training table after a non-contact injury on a deep route that appeared to reporters to possibly be a hamstring injury
  • QB JaCobian Morgan, Syracuse – in the 3rd quarter on Friday night he took a hit on a sack, went to the medical tent, and was thought to have had a head injury/been in concussion protocol, there was a false report in-game that he had been taken to a hospital
  • WR Skyy Moore, Western Michigan – surprisingly did not play on Wednesday night, after the game was started it was shared he had been banged up and suffered an injury in practice, but no further details
  • QB Eli Peters, Toledo – in the 2nd quarter on Wednesday night he went to the locker room after being hit on a sack, he came out on crutches with ice on his left knee, although he was seen later in the game on the sideline walking around without crutches, which seems hopeful
  • QB Cameron Rising, Utah – was knocked out of the game on a sack in the 2nd quarter with what one report said was a shoulder injury, he was not in pads on the sideline in the second half. Whether it be due to his injury or the play of QB Jake Bentley, the postgame comments were that Bentley looked like the QB going forward.
  • RB Chris Rodriguez, Kentucky – reports came out on Friday night that Kentucky was dealing with Covid issues, and that Rodriguez was among those who would not be able to play.
  • RB Tayvon Ruley, Temple – went down on a hit late in the 2nd quarter and did not appear to be on the sideline in the second half, in postgame he was said to have a shoulder injury that needed further assessment
  • QB Spencer Sanders, Oklahoma State – left in the first quarter and was sitting on the training table without a helmet for a time with what was thought to possibly be concussion protocol and was held out, but then he surprisingly came back into the game in the second half after sitting out quite a while, so who knows what went on there.
  • WR Shi Smith, South Carolina – in the first quarter he was crushed by two players on a passing route, he walked off slowly to the medical tent and then the locker room. He was later in street clothes and then in postgame was said to have been ruled out 5 minutes after the injury, is in concussion protocol, but looked “fine in the locker room”
  • QB Zach Smith, Tulsa – left the game in the 2nd quarter on Thursday night and went to the locker room with an apparent torso/ribs injury, came back out to the sideline in uniform but was said to be unlikely to return and did not
  • RB Markese Stepp, USC – did not dress for the game, and in postgame was shared to have had a pectoral strain and had practiced during the week but wasn’t able to go for the game
  • QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson, UCLA – late in the week reports came out that his status was in question for covid-related reasons. He tweeted out that he did not have covid but ultimately he and a number of other UCLA players were held out due to covid-related reasons, so he likely was in contact tracing
  • RB Sean Tyler, Western Michigan – limped off in the 3rd quarter on Wednesday night, not putting any weight on his right leg after getting tackled awkwardly in a horse-collar type tackle, and did not return. He was later seen on crutches on the sideline.
  • WR Jalen Virgil, App State – he was carted off the field before halftime and did not appear to return to the game
  • QB Shai Werts, Georgia Southern – in the 4th quarter he went to the injury tent after getting tackled on a run. He returned to the game but from highlights I saw did not appear to be in on the last possession as time expired (QB Justin Tomlin was in).
  • QB Tate Whatley, Southern Miss – in the 4th quarter he caught his own batted down pass and appeared to hurt his right shoulder getting hit
  • WR Seth Williams, Auburn – in the 4th quarter after going for a deep ball he appeared to be injured and was checked by trainers. In postgame Williams said it was “a stinger” and “everything is good”.

CFB Injury Updates from Saturday November 14

I break down the injury news from this past weekend with notes on each player who may have been dealing with injuries.

A few notes about this list, being on it does not for sure mean a player is “injured”, but rather:

  • They may have missed the game due to a known injury (ok, this does mean they are injured)
  • They may have gone out of the game due to injury and not returned (sometimes with an official announcement from the team)
  • They may have left the game but returned, or at least attempted to return (sometimes these guys end up banged up enough to miss future games)
  • They may have had a vague twitter mention about possibly being injured or leaving a game, so it’s something on my radar

I’ll continue to post any updates I see during the week, those will be added to daily updates as well as the injury database.

If you are aware of a fantasy-relevant injury from this weekend that you don’t see here (or don’t see listed in the database), or think anything shared here is incomplete, please tag me on twitter with a link and let me know, thanks!

List of Potential Injury News from Saturday Nov 14 (unless noted):

  • WR Tutu Atwell, Louisville – was a surprise scratch announced by the team in pregame for undisclosed reasons, this initially felt covid-related but after news that Javian Hawkins had opted out you have to wonder what might be next for Atwell. On Monday morning he was stated to be dealing with an injury.
  • RB Mulbah Car, Houston – limped off in the 1st quarter, was looked at and returned, but in the middle of the 2nd quarter was injured again. Came out for the second half in street clothes on the sideline and in postgame he was said to have tweaked an ankle injury.
  • WR KeSean Carter, Texas Tech – in the 4th quarter he was tackled on a reception, he walked off with trainers with a possible arm/shoulder injury. He was out earlier this season with an elbow injury, so it could be related, but that is speculation.
  • QB Henry Colombi, Texas Tech – he gave way to QB Alan Bowman and in postgame was said to have banged up his left elbow, but postgame quotes were “he’s a go” and that he could have gone back into the game.
  • RB Trestan Ebner, Baylor – only had one carry and in postgame was said to have experienced some muscle tightness in pregame and tried to go but was unable to
  • WR Emeka Emezie, NC State – in the 3rd quarter he was injured on a pass play and went to the locker room, was said to be questionable to return. The postgame comment was that he was “fine”.
  • RB C’Bo Flemister, Notre Dame – went down after a run in the 4th quarter, trainers appeared to be looking at his left leg. In postgame it was said that “it doesn’t appear to be serious”.
  • WR Danny Gray, SMU – on a pass attempt in the 4th quarter he went down and was grabbing at his wrist, which may be the same issue that caused him to miss time earlier this season
  • WR Donavon Greene, Wake Forest – in the fourth quarter it was noticed he was not on the sideline and in postgame the coach simply replied “he got injured”
  • TE Chase Hancock, Georgia Southern – injured early in the 3rd quarter and had to be carted off
  • RB Javian Hawkins, Louisville – was a surprise scratch announced by the team in pregame for undisclosed reasons, this initially felt covid-related but on Monday morning he announced he was opting out of the season to prepare for the NFL draft
  • RB Keyon Henry-Brooks, Vanderbilt – left the game in the second half as he had to be carted off the field. In game broadcast said he was going to get x-rays on his ribs. The team did not have a postgame update but did say that RB Ja’Veon Marlow would return from suspension next week.
  • WR Tavares Kelly, Virginia – shaken up on a kickoff return in the 3rd quarter and was down on the ground a while, appeared to take a shot to the head
  • QB Katravis Marsh, South Florida – came in the game late in relief and got hit as he tried to throw leading to a turnover and defensive TD. He didn’t return and in postgame the team did not have an update when asked.
  • RB Sincere McCormick, UTSA – was unavailable due to the birth of his daughter
  • RB Marcus McElroy, Colorado State – left the game Thursday night in the first quarter holding his left shoulder/collarbone area after getting tackled on a carry and did not return
  • RB Dedrick Mills, Nebraska – only had 3 carries, in postgame was said to be “nicked up, he will be fine”
  • TE James Mitchell, Virginia Tech – in the 2nd quarter he went down after a pass interference call and was hobbled and looked at by trainers and did not appear to return. He had just worked his way back from an injury to play in this game, unclear if this is related.
  • WR Mycah Pittman, Oregon – was not seen in pregame and was a surprise late scratch. His father actually tweeted that Mycah was 100% healthy and it wasn’t until the afternoon of gameday that he was ruled out. In postgame the coach comment was “Those guys did nothing wrong. They were not available tonight.”
  • TE Kyle Pitts, Florida – early in the day was said to be out Saturday night and then in postgame it was shared he had surgery on his nose after taking a hit to the head last week and would be out 11/21 weekend as well.
  • TE Tony Poljan, Virginia – in the first half he was hit near the goal line and fumbled, then looked at by trainers, I do not believe he returned
  • WR Kendric Pryor, Wisconsin – was ruled out in the second half by the team with an upper body injury
  • TE Brady Russell, Colorado – in the first quarter he was helped off the field with a lower leg/foot injury. He went to the medical tent and was seen with his right shoe off. He appeared to get it taped but was later seen without a helmet as he did not return.
  • QB Anthony Russo, Temple – did not play due to covid protocols and in postgame it was shared that the team knew as early as Monday that he would be out. Had he not been in covid protocol the team said he would have been cleared to play from his previous shoulder injury.
  • RB Shaki Seymour, Toledo – on Wednesday night he did not play in the second half and was seen on the sideline without a helmet, in postgame was said to be “a little banged up”. On Sunday it was reported by the team that Seymour’s mother passed away several days ago and that he was dealing with that which is why he didn’t play in the second half, so the “banged up” comment sounds like the coach was just looking out for Seymour’s privacy.
  • QB Zac Thomas, App State – in the fourth quarter he took a late hit out of bounds and had to be back-boarded and carted off where he taken by ambulance to the hospital. The team later shared he had feeling in all extremities and had been released. He tweeted last night “I am doing good and ready to get back with the team.”
  • QB Tyler Vitt, Texas State – left the game in the 2nd quarter and was seen with his left hand heavily wrapped. He was later seen in street clothes after a reported possible dislocation of his hand/wrist.
  • WR De’Vion Warren, Arkansas – injured in 4th quarter, was down on the field with helmet off in pain, limped off field and did not return
  • RB Kyren Williams, Notre Dame – near the end of the first half he landed on his shoulder coming out of the backfield on a pass route and was looked at by trainers on the sideline. In postgame it was said that he was “banged up” but could have returned.
