10/01/14 - Chuckie Keeton, Sr, Utah State, 6-1, 200 (DS#3 QB)[Newsfeed] Utah State QB Keeton likely out for season...Utah State announced Wednesday night that senior quarterback Chuckie Keeton likely will miss the remainder of the season. He injured his surgically repaired left knee against Wake Forest on Sept. 13 and hasn't played since. "Chuckie's health is our top priority and he has not been cleared to play by our medical staff," Utah State head coach Matt Wells said in a press release. "We will continue to monitor his progress throughout the fall, but given his current condition it is unlikely that he will play in any games in the foreseeable future."
Keeton underwent surgery last October after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his left knee, ending his 2013 season. He sat out spring practice and summer workouts but was able to start in the Aggies' season opener at Tennessee and started against Idaho State and Wake Forest before being sidelined. The aggravating injury didn't occur until the third game of the season, but it was clear from the start that Keeton wasn't himself, wearing a brace on his left knee and not appearing to be 100 percent healthy. Keeton entered the season as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 3 senior quarterback prospect with a third- to fourth-round draft projection, but the knee injury puts his NFL future in doubt. A fourth-year senior, Keeton will have the option of petitioning the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility to return to school in 2015, but no decision in that regard was announced. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/01/14 - Chuckie Keeton, Sr, Utah State, 6-1, 200 (DS#3 QB)[Newsfeed] Utah State QB Keeton likely out for season...When healthy, Keeton is one of the more exciting players in all of college football. He has a live arm with an easy delivery and release. The ball appears to shoot of his hand. Keeton is an energetic athlete with balanced footwork, shifty open-field moves and a fast-paced style to keep defenses on their toes. In 27 career starts before the October 2013 knee injury, he completed 66.5 percent of his passes with 70 touchdowns (56 passing, 14 rushing) and only 13 interceptions.
In three games in 2014, Keeton completed only 55.4 percent of his throws with three scores (two passing, one rushing) and four interceptions. At 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, Keeton lacks NFL size, already a red flag. With his inability to stay on the field the past two seasons, his durability is a strong concern moving forward. While he is unlikely to be selected if he enters the 2015 NFL Draft, a healthy season next year at Utah State could help rebuild his draft stock in the eyes of pro scouts. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/01/14 - Shai McKenzie, Fr, Virginia Tech, 6-0, 212 (DS#999 RB)[Newsfeed] Hokies RB McKenzie out for season...Virginia Tech Hokies running back Shai McKenzie will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee in Saturday's 35-17 victory over Western Michigan. The freshman suffered the same injury as a high school senior last fall. McKenzie was injured during the fourth quarter Saturday, and left the game with 87 rushing yards and a touchdown. "I am done for the season with another ACL injury. I trust that god will not let me down," McKenzie wrote on his Twitter page shortly before the team announced the injury Sunday.
McKenzie, from Washington, Pa., and fellow freshman Marshawn Williams had been splitting carries since the season opener. Williams leads the team with 290 rushing yards, although McKenzie paced the offense with an average of 5.1 yards per carry. McKenzie is expected to undergo surgery next month after swelling in his knee subsides, but he will not be able to apply for a medical redshirt waiver from the NCAA since he has already appeared in more than 30 percent of the team's games this season. - The Sports Xchange
09/29/14 - Johnnie Dixon, , Ohio State, 6-0, 175 (DS#999 WR)[Newsfeed] Buckeyes lose freshman WR Dixon for season...Ohio State was expecting a lot of out of freshman wide receiver Johnnie Dixon, a speedster out of Florida, and one of Urban Meyer's highly talented recruits in the class of 2013. On Thursday, Meyer said Dixon's season had come to an end because he needs surgery on both knees. "He's so talented," Meyer said on his radio show, "but he's been hurt really since his junior year of high school. We're expecting him to be fresh and ready to go for spring practice." Dixon will be eligible for a medical redshirt and still have four years of eligibility. He is the fourth member of Ohio State's freshman class to have season-ending surgery. - The Sports Xchange
09/29/14 - Paul James, rJr, Rutgers, 6-0, 210 (DS#16 RB)[Newsfeed] Season over for injured Rutgers starting RB James...Rutgers starting running back Paul James tore the ACL in his right knee in Saturday's 31-24 win against Navy and will miss the remainder of the season. James was injured in the second quarter when the helmet of a Navy defender and James' right knee collided. James had rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown. Back-up running backs Justin Goodwin and Desmon Peoples rushed for 104 and 82 yards, respectively, in James' absence. - The Sports Xchange
09/02/14 - Josh Shaw, rSr, Southern Cal, 6-1, 200 (DS#2 CB)[Newsfeed] Southern California coach Steve Sarkisian believes he shares blame with the athletic department for publicizing cornerback Josh Shaw's fictitious story about injuring his ankles while saving his nephew from drowning. Sarkisian also said Thursday that the suspended Shaw could "potentially" return to the Trojans at some point this season, news that was welcomed by Shaw's attorney. "Obviously there's some other things that need to take place," Sarkisian said Thursday after USC's practice. "But in the meantime, he's got to take care of his health and take care of himself, and when the time is right to bring him back, we will."
The first-year coach said Shaw still hasn't told the Trojans exactly how he sprained both of his ankles last weekend, extending this curious distraction into the weekend of Sarkisian's debut game. No. 15 USC hosts Fresno State on Saturday. Shaw admitted his elaborate story of heroism was a lie Wednesday in a meeting with USC officials, but offered no alternate explanation. Shaw was accompanied by attorney Donald Etra, who said no criminal activity was involved in Shaw's injuries. "The injury was caused by a fall from his balcony at his apartment," Etra told The Associated Press on Thursday. "He is very remorseful. He accepted responsibility for telling the untruth. He has apologized to USC, and he's looking forward to putting this behind him." - AP Sports
09/02/14 - Josh Shaw, rSr, Southern Cal, 6-1, 200 (DS#2 CB)[Newsfeed] Southern California cornerback Josh Shaw confessed that he lied to school officials about how he sprained his ankles last weekend, retracting his story about jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew. The school swiftly suspended him Wednesday from all team activities and acknowledged his heroic tale was "a complete fabrication." The tale began to unravel soon after the team captain was lauded for his heroics in a story on the team's website Monday. In the account, Shaw described how he instinctively jumped from a balcony, with no one around, to rescue his 7-year-old nephew in a pool in his hometown of Palmdale, California. The school said a day later callers questioned the story, and began vetting it. But the biggest question remains unanswered: What was he doing, and how did he injure his ankles?
"We are extremely disappointed in Josh," USC coach Steve Sarkisian said. "He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him when he told us of his injuries, nor did anything after our initial vetting of his story." The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that a man named Joshua Shaw was mentioned — but not as a suspect — in a report involving a break-in at a downtown apartment building Saturday night. The department has not made the report public. Shaw is a fifth-year senior, a captain and a key starter in USC's defensive secondary. He is widely considered a solid teammate and an important leader for the 15th-ranked Trojans, who begin their first season under Sarkisian at the Coliseum on Saturday against Fresno State. - AP Sports
09/02/14 - Zac Brooks, Jr, Clemson, 6-1, 190 (DS#999 RB)[Newsfeed] Clemson running back Zac Brooks had surgery on the foot he injured earlier this month. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney had previously said Brooks would miss the season and return next fall as a redshirt junior. Brooks was the team's leading returning rusher and was expected to be a significant part of the 16th-ranked Tigers' offense this season. Swinney also said Wednesday that reserve offensive lineman Oliver Jones tore an anterior cruciate ligament at practice Tuesday and will also miss this season. It's the second time Jones, a third-year sophomore, has torn an ACL playing football. Jones' loss is another blow to Clemson's offensive line depth. Earlier this month, lineman Shaq Anthony decided to transfer. - AP Sports
08/25/14 - Josh Shaw, rSr, Southern Cal, 6-1, 200 (DS#2 CB)[Newsfeed] Southern California senior cornerback Josh Shaw injured both ankles after leaping from a second-story balcony to save his 7-year-old nephew, Carter, from drowning in a pool. Shaw was named a team captain on Saturday and later that night was attending a family function at a cousin's apartment in his hometown of Palmdale when he saw his nephew, who can't swim, struggling in the pool. With no one around, Shaw told USC's website that he instinctively jumped from the balcony onto the concrete below and crawled to the pool, where he pulled Carter to safety. Unable to step out of the pool because of the pain in his ankles, Shaw lifted himself up the ladder with his upper body. "I would do it again for whatever kid it was, it did not have to be my nephew," Shaw told the team website. "My ankles really hurt, but I am lucky to be surrounded by the best trainers and doctors in the world. I am taking my rehab one day at a time, and I hope to be back on the field as soon as possible."
Shaw was taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed with two high ankle sprains and will be out indefinitely. He said Carter was traumatized, but physically in good shape. "That was a heroic act by Josh, putting his personal safety aside," Trojans coach Steve Sarkisian said. "But that's the kind of person he is. It is unfortunate that he'll be sidelined for a while and we will miss his leadership and play, but I know he'll be working hard to get back on the field as soon as possible." - AP Sports
08/25/14 - DeVante Parker, Sr, Louisville, 6-3, 209 (DS#2 WR)[Newsfeed] Louisville coach Bobby Petrino has announced that senior wide receiver Devante Parker will miss six to eight weeks with a broken left small toe, leaving the Cardinals without their top target for Monday night's season opener against Miami. Parker injured the foot in Friday night's practice and was examined Monday in Charlotte, North Carolina, by orthopedist Bob Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist. Petrino says Parker is scheduled to have surgery on Monday afternoon. Parker's injury deals a big blow to Louisville's offense as it enters the Atlantic Coast Conference against a Hurricanes squad it throttled 36-9 in the Russell Athletic Bowl last December. The Louisville native had nine catches for 142 yards and a touchdown against Miami en route to a team-high 885 yards and 12 TDs. - AP Sports
08/25/14 - Rory Anderson, Sr, South Carolina, 6-5, 232 (DS#8 TE)[Newsfeed] Other South Carolina prospects worth watching: TE Rory Anderson, Senior...A starter in 13 of 38 games over his career (including the last seven in 2013), Anderson was being projected as a possible all-conference pick this fall before a torn right triceps late in spring. He's still expected to play in 2014 but may not be ready for the team's opener August 28 against Texas A&M. Anderson has averaged 17.8 yards per catch over his career (39 receptions for 694 yards) and scored eight touchdowns. Anderson has good initial burst and agility to gain separation off the line of scrimmage and showed good hands on the tape reviewed. Unlike many other "hybrid" tight end/receivers across the country, Anderson seems to enjoy the physical battles at the line of scrimmage, showing surprising strength and tenacity while blocking. He is quick and competitive when sealing the edge and works to sustain his blocks. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/22/14 - DeVante Parker, Sr, Louisville, 6-3, 209 (DS#2 WR)[Newsfeed] Louisville says wide receiver Devante Parker injured his left foot during practice and will be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon in Charlotte, North Carolina, soon. The school announced the injury in a news release and said there is no timetable for Parker's return. Parker was injured during practice at Papa John's Stadium on Friday and evaluated by team physicians. He will visit Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte "in the next couple days for further evaluation and management," the release said. The 6-foot-3 senior passed up a chance to jump to the NFL after his junior season, when he had 55 receptions for 885 yards and a school-record 12 touchdown catches. The Cardinals begin their first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference on Labor Day night when they host Miami. - AP Sports
08/22/14 - Braxton Miller, rSr, Ohio State, 6-2, 215 (DS#7 QB)[Newsfeed] Surgery scheduled for Buckeyes' Miller...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is scheduled to have surgery to repair a torn labrum on Tuesday. The Columbus Dispatch reported that noted sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews will perform the operation in Pensacola, Fla. The injury is a partial tear. Recovery time is estimated between nine and 12 months. That would mean Miller would miss all of spring practice next year. Miller has indicated that he will forgo the NFL Draft and return as a fifth-year senior nest season. Miller had surgery in February for a partial labrum tear suffered in an Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. He was being eased back into action after sitting out spring practice, but on Monday he reinjured the shoulder while making a routine 7-yard pass. - The Sports Xchange
08/20/14 - Zac Brooks, Jr, Clemson, 6-1, 190 (DS#999 RB)[Newsfeed] Clemson loses RB Brooks (foot) for season...Clemson junior running back Zac Brooks is out for the season with a foot injury. Coach Dabo Swinney said Brooks, the team's most complete running back and one pegged for an expanded role this season with Roderick McDowell gone. "This is a big loss because he is reliable in all phases of the game," Swinney said. Clemson enters the season with new starters at running back, quarterback and wide receiver, where stud All-American Sammy Watkins might prove to be the most difficult to replace.
Brooks hurt his shoulder as a freshman and re-injured it last season. He was the team's leading returning rusher with 246 yards in 2013. However, Swinney said earlier in the week that running back is one of the team's deepest positions. "This is the deepest group we've had around here in a long time," he said. "The one group I'm not worried about is running back. We're going to be just fine right there. We've got some good football players. Some really, really good football players. - The Sports Xchange
08/20/14 - Brandon Bourbon, rSr, Kansas, 6-1, 225 (DS#999 RB)[Newsfeed] The top two running backs on the Kansas depth chart will each miss their senior season after Brandon Bourbon tore his ACL and Taylor Cox tore his Achilles' tendon in separate incidents. Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis announced the injuries in a statement Tuesday. He said that both of the players will remain in school and could petition for a sixth year of eligibility. "I feel bad for both Brandon and Taylor as they were looking forward to the opportunity to be the replacement for James Sims," Weis said. "I sat down with each of them individually and talked through their options and was happy that they chose to further their education, while attempting to play again next year if things work out."
Bourbon, who tore his knee ligament during a scrimmage on Sunday, was listed first on the most recent depth chart. The 225-pound senior has battled injuries throughout much of his career, running for 422 yards and four touchdowns over parts of three seasons. - AP Sports
08/20/14 - Taylor Cox, rSr, Kansas, 5-11, 212 (DS#999 RB)[Newsfeed] The top two running backs on the Kansas depth chart will each miss their senior season after Brandon Bourbon tore his ACL and Taylor Cox tore his Achilles' tendon in separate incidents. Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis announced the injuries in a statement Tuesday. He said that both of the players will remain in school and could petition for a sixth year of eligibility. Cox, who hurt his tendon in a non-contact drill Monday, spent his first two seasons at College of the Siskiyous in California. He started three times as a junior and ran for 464 yards, but he was forced to take a medical redshirt after appearing in just two games last season. - AP Sports
08/19/14 - Braxton Miller, rSr, Ohio State, 6-2, 215 (DS#7 QB)[Newsfeed] Braxton Miller will miss the 2014 season...The major awards candidate re-injured his right shoulder Monday while throwing a short pass...Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller re-injured his right shoulder attempting a short pass in practice Monday and will miss the 2014 football season. Miller, who was not hit on the play, was in the process of returning from off-season surgery in February for an injury sustained in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl. This latest injury will require surgery. "My thoughts and prayers are with Braxton and his family," Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said. "This is an unfortunate injury to a young man who means so much to this program and to Buckeye nation."
"I love Ohio State and Buckeye nation, and my goal is to come back from this injury stronger and better than ever," Miller said. "I am on course to graduate in December and I want to attend graduate school, and then return to lead the Buckeyes next season. In the meantime, I want to give all the support I can to my coaches and teammates as they chase a championship this season." Miller, a communications major, did not practice this spring and had been limited by athletic trainers and coaches in the number of throws he was making this fall. Third-year sophomore Cardale Jones and red-shirt freshman J.T. Barrett took turns behind center with the No. 1 offense when Miller was not on the field. - Ohio State football
08/19/14 - Braxton Miller, rSr, Ohio State, 6-2, 215 (DS#7 QB)[Newsfeed] Braxton Miller will miss the 2014 season...Miller, who has yet to take a red-shirt season, entered his senior season with 5,292 career passing yards and 3,054 rushing yards to rank ninth and eighth, respectively, in school history and with the prospects of holding close to 20 school records. His 8,346 total yards and 84 touchdowns responsible for are each second in school annals. His 52 touchdown passes are fourth at Ohio State and just six from the school record. Miller, 26-8 as a starting quarterback, also entered his senior season as a viable contender for all of the major national awards.
His seven Big Ten Conference individual awards, including consecutive Chicago Tribune MVPs, Griese-Brees Quarterback of the Year awards and Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year awards, are the most in conference history. It was previously announced by Meyer on Saturday that Barrett, a 6-1, 225-pounder from Wichita Falls, Texas, had moved ahead of Jones for the No. 2 quarterback spot. Jones, a 6-5, 250-pounder from Cleveland, is the only quarterback on the roster with any game experience. He played 39 snaps from scrimmage last season in games vs. Florida A&M, Penn State and Purdue. - Ohio State football
08/19/14 - Thomas Holley, Fr, Florida, 6-4, 298 (DS#999 DT)[Newsfeed] Florida five-star freshman DT Thomas Holley out for year...Florida five-star freshman defensive tackle Thomas Holley will miss the 2014 season and redshirt after surgery to repair a labral tear in his hip, UF coach Will Muschamp announced Tuesday. "Disappointed for Thomas. Certainly a guy that athletically we were very excited about," Muschamp said, per 247Sports affiliate GatorBait.net. The labral tear resulted from a sports hernia suffered during Holley's high school career. "Originally when he came in for the pre-physical he'd had the sports hernia repaired and that's where he thought his pain was coming from," Muschamp said. "And then on the pre-physical we saw this. We wanted to see how far we could take it but we knew eventually there was probably going to be a surgery involved. He just had a lot of discomfort involved, so we just decided to go ahead and do it."
Holley signed with the Gators as one of the nation's most coveted defensive tackle prospects, a five-star player according to 247Sports' rankings and the nation's No. 77 player overall in the 247Sports composite. A Brookyln native, Holley was also the No. 1 player in New York for the class of 2014. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
08/19/14 - Braxton Miller, rSr, Ohio State, 6-2, 215 (DS#7 QB)[Newsfeed] Ohio State title odds plummeting in wake of Braxton Miller news...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has not officially been ruled out for the entire 2014 season, but the sportsbooks across the country have already reacted to the reported news. At Bovada, Ohio State was downgraded from 12/1 to 18/1 after it was reported that Miller could miss some time due to a shoulder injury. That was just based on the idea that Miller could possibly miss some time, now that it is being reported that the reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year will miss the entire season, sportsbooks are sliding the Buckeyes even further down the board. For comparison, 50/1 is also where Michigan and Texas were listed late last month. That is quite the slide for a team that many expected to win the Big Ten and compete in the first College Football Playoff. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
08/19/14 - Braxton Miller, rSr, Ohio State, 6-2, 215 (DS#7 QB)[Newsfeed] Report: Ohio State loses QB Miller for season...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, considered a preseason contender for the Heisman Trophy, sustained a dislocated right shoulder in practice on Monday and ESPN reported that he will miss the 2015 season. Ohio State is expected to update his condition later Tuesday. Miller was to undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the extent of the damage to the shoulder, which was surgically repaired in February after he was injured in the Orange Bowl loss to Clemson in January. The Canton Repository reported that Miller experienced instability in the shoulder while throwing a routine pass during Monday's practice. The Buckeyes returned to practice Tuesday morning without Miller.
Miller had been nursing the shoulder along during preseason camp. He did not participate in contact drills during the spring after the surgery. If Miller is unable to play this season, he would be eligible for a redshirt in 2015. Ohio State is ranked No. 5 in the preseason Associated Press poll and considered a contender to land one of the berths in the four-team playoff to determine a national champion this season. If Miller is indeed sidelined, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett likely will be the starting quarterback for the season opener on Aug. 30 against Navy. Last season, Miller completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions and also ran for 1,068 yards and 12 touchdowns. - The Sports Xchange
08/19/14 - Braxton Miller, rSr, Ohio State, 6-2, 215 (DS#7 QB)[Newsfeed] Report: Braxton Miller reinjures shoulder, season in jeopardy...Here's a bombshell that could change the landscape of college football in 2014. The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder during practice Monday, and that the injury puts Miller's entire 2014 season "in jeopardy." Ohio State has not confirmed the report, but a source tells CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler that Miller will undergo an MRI on the shoulder Tuesday morning. Miller was throwing an out-route in practice during non-contact drills and grabbed his throwing arm/shoulder and told coaches he felt something. Miller then spent the rest of the practice with ice on his shoulder, and was in good spirits.
Fowler was also told that Ohio State isn't sure how long Miller will be out, and won't be until it gets the results of the MRI. Whatever the results, losing Miller for any length of time would be a huge blow to the Buckeyes. Ohio State would go from a preseason favorite in the Big Ten to, well, nobody really knows. That's just the kind of impact player Braxton Miller is, as he's considered by just about anyone you ask a candidate for the Heisman Trophy this season. Miller had surgery on a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder in February after hurting it in Ohio State's Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. If Miller misses time -- for whatever length of time -- he'd likely be replaced by redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who is second on the Ohio State depth chart. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
08/19/14 - Damien Robinson, rSr, Mississippi State, 6-7, 320 (DS#999 OT)[Newsfeed] Mississippi State offensive lineman Damien Robinson is out for the season after suffering a knee injury during a scrimmage. Coach Dan Mullen confirmed Robinson's injury on Monday after practice, saying the 6-foot-8, 325-pound senior tore an anterior cruciate ligament during a scrimmage on Friday night. Robinson has appeared in 37 career games, mostly on special teams, but was the likely starter at right tackle this fall. Some of the candidates to fill the vacancy include Rufus Warren, Justin Senior or Cole Carter. Mullen could also move Justin Malone from guard to tackle. Mississippi State opens its season on Aug. 30 at home against Southern Mississippi. - AP Sports
08/19/14 - Malcolm Mitchell, rJr, Georgia, 6-1, 190 (DS#11 WR)[Newsfeed] Georgia's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 3. WR Malcolm Mitchell, Redshirt Junior...A year ago Mitchell topped my list of Georgia's top prospects. Recurring knee injuries, including a torn ACL suffered in the season-opener against Clemson and a separate injury that forced new surgery on July 31, however, very much has his stock in flux. When healthy, Mitchell has shown flashes of superstardom. Over his first two years in the program, he's spent time at wide receiver, cornerback, kick returner and punt returner and has been described as Georgia's most dynamic and versatile weapon since Champ Bailey. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/19/14 - Malcolm Mitchell, rJr, Georgia, 6-1, 190 (DS#11 WR)[Newsfeed] Georgia's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 3. WR Malcolm Mitchell, Redshirt Junior...Prior to the knee injuries, Mitchell was a dynamic athlete who struck fear into defenders. Splitting time between so many positions early in his career stunted his growth and most of his production at wideout came off of relatively simple routes. His production to this point (85 catches for 1,237 yards and eight touchdowns) speaks to his upside. Mitchell possesses the combination of size, agility, straight-line speed and ball-skills to re-emerge as Georgia's top pass-catcher but he is a work in progress as a route-runner. He's explosive out of his breaks and is tough to tackle, showing not only elusiveness and vision but strength to fight through arm tackles and break away for the long score. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
