10/22/14 - Luther Maddy, Sr, Virginia Tech, 6-0, 292 (DS#7 DT)
Hokies DT Maddy out for season...A second right knee surgery in the span of three weeks will sideline Virginia Tech defensive tackle Luther Maddy for the rest of the season. Maddy, who has 33 career starts and was a third-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference pick in 2013, started the first four games of the 2014 season before he had surgery for a meniscus tear and underwent surgery. "After his knee surgery on Sept. 23, Luther Maddy had two options moving forward. Luther has chosen the option of having an additional procedure and taking a medical hardship, so we will move forward based on his decision," Mike Goforth, Virginia Tech's associate athletic director for sports medicine, said in a release. "The expected recovery time is four to six months, and he will be limited in the spring but is expected to be full for fall practice." Maddy said said via Twitter that he plans to apply for a medical redshirt and return to the Hokies next year. - The Sports Xchange

10/22/14 - Luther Maddy, Sr, Virginia Tech, 6-0, 292 (DS#7 DT)
Virginia Tech defensive tackle Luther Maddy will have a second surgery on his injured right knee and miss the remainder of the season. Hokies trainer Mike Goforth says Maddy's recovery time will be 4-6 months and that Maddy will pursue a medical hardship redshirt. Maddy tore the meniscus in his right knee during Virginia Tech's loss to East Carolina on Sept. 13. He played the following week against Georgia Tech. The defensive lineman had surgery Sept. 25 and was expected to return in 2-4 weeks, but has not played since. Maddy can pursue the medical hardship because he has never redshirted at Virginia Tech. Maddy was a preseason All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection this season. He has played in four games. - AP Sports

10/22/14 - Sean Robinson, rSr, Purdue, 6-3, 239 (DS#58 ILB)
Purdue senior linebacker Sean Robinson is out for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee. Coach Darrell Hazell says Robinson will have surgery on Oct. 28. He was injured an Oct. 4 victory at Illinois. Robinson, who began his Purdue career as a quarterback before making the switch to defense, had 42 tackles in six games this season. Purdue (3-5, 1-3 Big Ten) have a bye week and will return to action on Nov. 1 at No. 16 Nebraska. - AP Sports

10/22/14 - Adam Choice, Fr, Clemson, 5-09, 215 (DS#999 RB)
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said leading running back Adam Choice is lost for the season after tearing a knee ligament. The 21st-ranked Tigers (5-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) will also be without tight end Jordan Leggett for several weeks due after he also suffered a knee injury. Swinney said both players were injured in last Saturday's 17-13 victory at Boston College. Clemson faces Syracuse (3-4, 1-2) on Saturday night. Choice, a freshman, led Clemson with 218 yards and a touchdown. Swinney said Choice would need surgery in a couple of weeks to repair an ACL. Swinney said Leggett tore his meniscus and sprained an MCL. He's caught 10 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown. The coach did not provide any further details on the injuries, per athletic department policy. - AP Sports

10/22/14 - Trevor Davis, rJr, California, 6-2, 180 (DS#999 WR)
California receiver Trevor Davis has been released from the hospital after he was hurt on a kickoff return. Davis was removed from the field on a stretcher in the fourth quarter Saturday against UCLA. The team says he was taken to the hospital for tests before being released around midnight Sunday. "I'd like to thank everyone so much for all the prayers, and I'm blessed to say that I'm doing good and will be back soon," Davis said on his Twitter account. Davis stayed down on the turf for a long time after appearing to take a knee to the helmet as he was tackled Saturday. While the trainers were tending to him, Davis' teammates kneeled on the field and the crowd chanted "Tre-vor Da-vis! Tre-vor Da-vis!" Davis was able to move his legs and talk. He gave a thumbs up to the crowd as he was taken away on a cart. Cal lost the game 36-34. - AP Sports

10/22/14 - Miles Shuler, Sr, Northwestern, 5-10, 175 (DS#999 WR)
Northwestern wide receiver Miles Shuler has been taken off the field on a stretcher after a short reception against Nebraska. Shuler had his head down when he slammed into Nebraska safety Corey Cooper with 3:36 left in the third quarter on Saturday night. The stadium was mostly silent as Shuler was attended to by trainers during a long delay, and Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini walked across the field to check on the junior. There was a warm round of applause as Shuler left the field, and he held his right arm up to acknowledge the cheers. The school says Shuler was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Shuler had five receptions for 33 yards in the game. - AP Sports

10/22/14 - Jason Spriggs, Jr, Indiana, 6-6, 307 (DS#12 OT)
Indiana left tackle Jason Spriggs was released from a local hospital Saturday night about two hours after he was carted off the field with a feared neck injury. Team spokesman Jeff Keag said doctors gave him a "clean bill of health." He did not have any additional information about the injury. Earlier, Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson told reporters Spriggs had pain in his upper neck but had movement in his extremities. The scary scene occurred after it appeared Spriggs was hurt on a helmet-to-helmet collision with 4:54 to play. Spriggs remained face down for several minutes as trainers tended to him. A golf cart then drove onto the field and he was placed on a backboard, taken to an ambulance and transported to the hospital. "He took a hit head on," Wilson said. "Was conscious, breathing but had some upper neck pain. Took a step and fell down." The 6-foot-7, 300-pound junior is considered to be Indiana's top offensive lineman. His injury appeared to be another tough break for the Hoosiers (3-4, 0-3 Big Ten), who lost their top two quarterbacks with injuries that will likely end their seasons. - AP Sports

10/22/14 - Trevor Davis, rJr, California, 6-2, 180 (DS#999 WR)
California kickoff returner Trevor Davis was taken to the hospital after being removed from the field on a stretcher when he was injured on a kickoff return in the fourth quarter Saturday against UCLA. Davis stayed down on the turf for a long time after appearing to take a knee to the helmet as he was tackled. While the trainers were tending to him, Davis' teammates showed concern as they kneeled on the field and the crowd chanted "Tre-vor Da-vis! Tre-vor Da-vis!" Davis was able to move his legs and was seen talking. He gave a thumb's up to the crowd as he was taken away on a cart and brought to the hospital. "He said he felt OK," coach Sonny Dykes said. "He's going to the hospital but certainly signs from the field all looked good."

After the delay for the injury, Cal tried to drive for the winning score but Jared Goff threw an interception in the final minute of a 36-34 loss. "That was kind of scary to see," Goff said. "It was tough having to go out there and try to put a drive together." UCLA coach Jim Mora began his news conference by sending good wishes to Davis. "You just hate to see anybody go down," Mora said. "When you have to bring the cart out it just brings everything into perspective. These are kids playing a game that they love. Hopefully that young man is OK. UCLA is thinking about him." - AP Sports

10/17/14 - Tre Madden, rJr, Southern Cal, 6-1, 225 (DS#19 RB)
USC RB Madden to sit out rest of season...Chalk up 2014 as a lost season for USC running back Tre Madden. Madden rushed for 583 yards and scored six touchdowns in the Trojans' first five games last season before suffering a hamstring injury against Arizona. He struggled to get healthy, but many thought 2014 would be a breakout season for the redshirt junior from nearby Mission Viejo High. Unfortunately for Madden and Trojans fans, that was not the case. He suffered a turf-toe injury in training camp. He has been sidelined all year and now has decided to sit out the remainder of the season. Madden, his parents and coach Steve Sarkisian met Thursday and came to the conclusion it would be best to focus on getting ready for 2015. "We're moving forward," Madden's father, Curtis, told the Orange County Register. "It's disappointing that he's not going to be able to contribute this season. But there's next year and the year after that." Madden redshirted in 2012 because of a knee injury. He will have at least one more year of eligibility. He could apply for a sixth season via a medical hardship waiver. - The Sports Xchange

10/17/14 - Aziz Shittu, Jr, Stanford, 6-3, 280 (DS#30 DE)
Stanford DE Shittu might be lost for season...Stanford junior defensive end Aziz Shittu was injured in practice Thursday on a noncontact play and Cardinal coach David Shaw said it is likely Shittu will miss the rest of the season. Stanford will call on fifth-year senior Blake Lueders to help fill Shittu's shoes. Shittu is NFLDraftScout.com's 30th-ranked defensive end. Shaw is likely to turn to Nate Lohn and Jordan Watkins to help steady an already thin defensive line against Saturday's opponent, Arizona State. The Cardinal also will be without starting wide receiver Devon Cajuste, the team's second leading receiver. Cajuste suffered a concussion last week against Washington State. - The Sports Xchange

10/16/14 - Trey Edmunds, rSo, Virginia Tech, 6-1, 217 (DS#13 RB)
Scouting the Virginia Tech running game: The Hokies lost three tailbacks to injury in their last two games -- Shai McKenzie (knee) for the season, Trey Edmunds (clavicle) for six to eight weeks and Marshawn Williams (ankle) for an undisclosed amount of time. Williams told reporters that he has been a training room regular over the last week trying to get his ankle right for Thursday's game, but there's still no telling whether he can play or not. If the Hokies are without Williams, who started the last five games, they will look to J.C. Coleman and Joel Caleb to carry the load. Coleman has starting experience, and Caleb was a highly-recruited player out of high school. Beamer said he believes both can get the job done if they are called upon. Beamer also said Sam Rogers, the team's starting fullback, could also see some time at tailback if needed. - The Sports Xchange

10/16/14 - Brandon Facyson, So, Virginia Tech, 6-1, 191 (DS#5 CB)
Starting CB Brandon Facyson could be eligible for a medical redshirt if the Hokies decide to go that route. Facyson, who suffered a leg injury in spring practice, has been slow to recover. He struggled in the first three games of the season and has missed the last three while trying to make his way back. "He's still just not right and I think you keep waiting for the time that he will be right. It gets to be a point in time, you try to do what's for sure in his best interest," coach Frank Beamer said. - The Sports Xchange

10/16/14 - Matt Goudis, rJr, Miami, 6-0, 172 (DS#999 K)
Miami has lost kicker Matt Goudis and long snapper Ronald Regula for the remainder of the season because of injuries. Goudis played two games this season before being sidelined with a back injury. Regula suffered a right leg injury in the final minutes of last week's win over Cincinnati. Hurricanes coach Al Golden says both players will require surgery. Goudis was replaced by Michael Badgley after he was hurt. Frank Gabriel, the team's short snapper, will likely replace Regula. Miami (4-3) is off until visiting Virginia Tech on Oct. 23. - AP Sports

10/15/14 - Joey Iosefa, rSr, Hawaii, 6-0, 245 (DS#9 FB)
University of Hawaii running back Joey Iosefa has been suspended for three games after a weekend drunken driving arrest. The Hawaii athletic department said in a release that Iosefa is also no longer a team captain. According to police records, the 23-year-old Iosefa was taken into custody Sunday morning in Honolulu. He was released after posting $500 bail. Head coach Norm Chow said he met with Iosefa on Tuesday. In a statement, Chow said the running back was "contrite, embarrassed and remorseful." Iosefa said in the release he hopes to regain the trust of coaches, teammates and fans. The 6-foot, 245-pound senior from Pago Pago, American Samoa, missed the first four games of the season with a foot injury. He's eligible to return Nov. 8 when the Rainbow Warriors visit Colorado State. He'll be arraigned Nov. 10 on the drunken driving charge. - AP Sports

10/15/14 - Corvin Lamb, rJr, Louisville, 5-09, 212 (DS#999 RB)
Louisville junior running back/kick returner Corvin Lamb will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn right anterior cruciate ligament. Cardinals football spokesman Rocco Gasparro announced Lamb's surgery Wednesday morning on his Twitter account. It's the second season-ending knee injury for Lamb, who played in just two games as a sophomore following a left ACL tear against Eastern Kentucky. The Miami native injured the knee while playing on special teams in Saturday's 23-17 loss at Clemson. Considered Louisville's fastest player, Lamb had six kickoff returns for a team-best 187 yards including a 97-yarder for a touchdown in its season-opening victory over Miami. Lamb's kickoff return was the fifth-longest in school history. Louisville is the Atlantic Coast Conference's only school with a TD return this season. - AP Sports

10/14/14 - Vernon Adams Jr., rJr, Eastern Washington, 5-11, 205 (DS#18 QB)
SEPT 8 BIG SKY OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams, a 6-foot, 200-pound junior from Pasadena, Calif., threw for a career-high 475 yards and seven touchdown passes in No. 2 Eastern Washington’s 59-52 loss to Washington of the Pac-12. Adams completed 31-of-46 passes. His 475 passing yards were the secondmost in school single-game history. His seven TD passes surpassed his previous single-game high of six. Adams helped the Eagles rally from a 21-0 first-quarter deficit. The Eagles led twice in the second half. Adams finished with 491 yards of total offense. The reigning Big Sky Offensive MVP hiked his career passing touchdown total to 91, just seven shy of the all-time Big Sky record. This is Adams’ second straight Player of the Week honor and the eighth of his career. - Big Sky football

10/14/14 - Vernon Adams Jr., rJr, Eastern Washington, 5-11, 205 (DS#18 QB)
SEPT 1 BIG SKY OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Vernon Adams Jr., QB, Eastern Washington...Adams Jr., a 6-foot, 200-pound junior from Pasadena, Calif., has guided the top-ranked Eagles to victories over Sam Houston State and Montana-Western.

The Walter Payton Award favorite is averaging 370.5 yards of total offense per game and has an efficiency rating of 174.9. This is Adams’ seventh career Player of the Week honor. - Big Sky football

10/13/14 - Joey Iosefa, rSr, Hawaii, 6-0, 245 (DS#9 FB)
University of Hawaii running back Joey Iosefa has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. According to police records, 23-year-old Iosefa was taken into custody at about 5 a.m. Sunday near downtown Honolulu. He was released after posting $500 bail. University Athletic Director Ben Jay says he plans to meet with football head coach Norm Chow on Tuesday to determine how to handle the situation. Jay says the university is gathering facts about the incident to determine how to proceed in the best interest of "Joey, the team and University of Hawaii." The arrest comes after the Rainbow Warriors beat Wyoming 38-28 on Saturday after a two-game losing streak. Iosefa couldn't immediately be reached for comment. A court date is scheduled for Nov. 10. - AP Sports

10/13/14 - Trevor Davis, rJr, California, 6-2, 180 (DS#999 WR)
OCT 6 PAC-12 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Cal wide receiver Trevor Davis, a senior from Martinez, Calif., became the first player in Golden Bear history to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in the same game, returning two consecutive Washington State kickoffs for 100-yard and 98-yard scores in the third quarter. Davis became just the third player in Pac-12 history with two kickoff return TDs in the same game. (Reggie Dunn, Utah, 2012; Anthony Davis, USC, 1972). Davis’ return TD was the first for Cal since 2011 (Brendan Bigelow). Davis' 198 kickoff return yards were also a school record, surpassing the old mark of 186 set by Deltha O'Neal vs. Navy in the 1996 Aloha Bowl. Davis also added three catches for 82 yards and a career-high two TD catches and finished with a career-high 280 all-purpose yards. Also nominated for Special Teams Player of the Week: Tyrell Johnson, WR, ARIZ; Trevor Romaine, PK, OSU; Cameron Judge, LB, UCLA; Nelson Agholor, WR, USC; Andy Phillips, K, UTAH. - Pac-12 football

10/13/14 - Nate Sudfeld, Jr, Indiana, 6-4, 232 (DS#9 QB)
Indiana QB Sudfeld out for season...Indiana Hoosiers quarterback Nate Sudfeld will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a shoulder injury that will require surgery. The injury is to his left, non-throwing shoulder, but will require an extensive rehab period according to Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson. Sudfeld is currently rated as the No. 9 junior quarterback in the country by NFLDraftScout.com, and is expected to return to Indiana next season. He had thrown for 1,151 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions through the first six games of 2014 as the Hoosiers started 3-3. Freshman Chris Covington will take over at quarterback, and has thrown only 12 passes this season, with two completions and a pair of interceptions. - The Sports Xchange

10/13/14 - Matt Miller, rSr, Boise State, 6-3, 220 (DS#22 WR)
Boise State wide receiver Matt Miller is likely out for the season because he has to undergo surgery to repair a ligament injury in his left ankle. Broncos coach Bryan Harsin announced Sunday that the senior from Helena, Montana, would have surgery on Monday. Harsin says doctors didn't expect Miller's injury to improve enough for him to be able to play this season. The goal is for Miller to be well enough to try to participate in the NFL Combine in February, Harsin said. "He's going to move on and play football again," as a pro, Harsin said. "It was hard. I said, 'Just do it.' I said, 'Get it done, because you're going to have a chance to play again.'"

Miller holds the Boise State career record with 244 catches, but is 15 yards short of breaking the career record for receiving yards. He ranks third in receiving touchdowns, first in single-season receptions and caught at least one pass in all 44 games he's played in for the Broncos. Miller made 28 catches for 461 yards and three touchdowns this season and passed for a score in the team's Sept. 13 win at Connecticut. "Matt Miller is one of the toughest human beings I've ever been around in this game," offensive coordinator Mike Sanford said Sunday. "This whole year, including spring ball, including fall camp and including the first five games he was in for — he would never say anything about it, but I think he was playing well below 100 percent in terms of being healthy. He had some nagging injuries going on. When they had a chance to really go in and look at everything after he did sustain his lower-leg injury, it was a pretty significant injury." - AP Sports

10/13/14 - Wes Lunt, rSo, Illinois, 6-4, 215 (DS#7 QB)
SEPT 8 BIG TEN CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Wes Lunt, Illinois, So., QB, Rochester, Ill./Rochester,...Completed 35 of 50 passes for a career-high 456 yards and three touchdowns in Illinois’ victory over Western Kentucky...In the fourth quarter alone, Lunt was 10-of-11 for 154 yards and a touchdown while leading the team to its second-straight fourth-quarter comeback win...His 456 passing yards rank second in Memorial Stadium history, trailing the record by just six yards...Records the first Offensive Player of the Week award of his career...Last Illinois Offensive Player of the Week: Steve Hull (Nov. 25, 2013). - Big Ten football

10/12/14 - Shai McKenzie, Fr, Virginia Tech, 6-0, 212 (DS#999 RB)
SEP 1 ACC ROOKIE OF THE WEEK: Shai McKenzie, Virginia Tech, Fr., RB, 5-11, 212, Washington, Pa.,...In his first game action, the true freshman rushed for 106 yards on just nine carries (11.8 yards per carry) with a 39-yard touchdown in the Hokies’ 34-9 win over William & Mary. - ACC football

10/12/14 - Corvin Lamb, rJr, Louisville, 5-09, 212 (DS#999 RB)
SEP 1 ACC CO-SPECIALIST OF THE WEEK: Corvin Lamb, Louisville, R-Jr., 5-9, 290, Miami, Fla.,...In the Cardinals’ first game as member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, Lamb returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown to help spark Louisville to a 31-13 win over visiting Miami on Monday night. The 97-yard kickoff return tied for the fifth-longest in school history. - ACC football

10/12/14 - Deshaun Watson, Fr, Clemson, 6-3, 190 (DS#1 QB)
SEP 22 ACC ROOKIE OF THE WEEK: Deshaun Watson, Clemson, Fr., QB, 6-3, 200, Gainesville, Ga.,...Watson came off the bench to complete 19 of 28 passes for 266 yards and ran for 30 yards on 12 carries to finish with 296 total yards versus top-ranked Florida State in Saturday night’s 23-17 overtime loss. His 296 yards of total offense were the most ever by a Clemson true freshman, and his 266 passing yards ranked as the second highest. Watson took over on the fourth possession of the game and went the rest of the way for as the Tigers played into overtime before a crowd of nearly 83,000 at Doak Campbell Stadium. Watson took the snap on 40 total plays and did not commit a turnover. - ACC football
