SEC Injury Report

QB Connor Shaw, South Carolina, shoulder

Next game: vs. Missouri, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)
After missing South Carolina’s second game against ECU, Shaw started last week’s game against UAB but was pulled after he was hit and fell on his shoulder. He’s expected to start again this weekend, but the question remains how much his injured shoulder will affect his willingness to scramble.

QB James Franklin, Missouri, shoulder

Next game: vs. South Carolina, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)

Missouri coach Gary Pinkel is optimistic about Franklin’s return for Saturday’s game vs. South Carolina and says his QB is almost symptom free.

RB Alfred Blue, LSU, knee

Next game: vs. Auburn, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Blue, the Tigers’ second-leading rusher (270 yards, 40 attempts), is out for Saturday’s primetime game. It may not hamper LSU’s rushing attack much as they still have Kenny Hilliard, who’s leading the SEC this season with six touchdowns.

QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas, concussion

Next game: vs. Rutgers, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Wilson will start Saturday against Rutgers. Wilson practiced throughout the week but wasn't cleared by doctors to play until late Thursday. 

LB Jarvis Jones, Georgia, strained groin

Next game: vs. Vanderbilt, Saturday, 7:45 p.m. ET (ESPN2)

Jones is fully expected to play Saturday vs. the Commodores. He sat out during last week’s rout of Florida Atlantic as a precautionary measure after sustaining the injury against Missouri two weeks ago.

ACC Injury Report

CB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech, shoulder

Next game: vs. Bowling Green, Saturday, noon ET, (ESPNU)

Fuller, who has practiced this week, declared himself 70 percent healthy but expects to be on the field on Saturday. His injury left the Hokies scrambling to fill the secondary against Pittsburgh, who tore the Hokie defense apart for 537 yards, including 283 yards and three touchdowns through the air.

NG Nikita Whitlock, Wake Forest, sprained ankle

Next game: vs. Army, Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET (ESPN3)

Whitlock isn’t expected to play for the second consecutive game after suffering an ankle sprain against North Carolina on Sept. 8. His absence leaves a huge hole in the Demon Deacon defense after being gashed for 385 yards on the ground by FSU last week. Unfortunately for Wake Forest, Army is the second-highest (384 ypg) rushing team in the country.

LB Denzel Perryman, Miami, lower leg

Next game: at Georgia Tech, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPN3)

Perryman (16 tackles, one interception for TD) won’t play in Saturday’s game vs. the Yellow Jackets. This will be especially detrimental against Georgia Tech’s option, which averages 374 rushing yards per game. Junior Jimmy Gaines, who had 58 tackles last season, will replace him.

LB Kenny Tate, Maryland, knee

Next game: at West Virginia, Saturday, noon ET (FX)

Tate has missed the entire season so far, but he could be available Saturday against the No. 8 Mountaineers. Tate’s 2011 season was cut short as well when he tore his ACL just four games in, but the former all-ACC performer had 35 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble to begin last season.

USC center Khaled Holmes is still recovering from an ankle injury and is questionable for Saturday's game against Cal. (AP)

Big East Injury Report

RB Savon Huggins, Rutgers, lower body

Next game: at Arkansas, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Huggins, the Scarlet Knights’ backup running back, is out against the Razorbacks. That will give more work to starter Jawan Jamison, who leads the Big East with 373 yards rushing and has the second most attempts in the league.

RB Marcus Shaw, South Florida, ankle

Next game: at Ball State, Saturday, 4:30 p.m. ET (ESPN3)

Shaw has missed the last two games but has shown enough in practice that coach Skip Holtz will let him travel with the team to Ball State.

S JaQuez Jenkins, South Florida, back

Next game: at Ball State, Saturday, 4:30 p.m. ET (ESPN3)

Holtz has a policy that if a player misses practice Tuesday or Wednesday, he can’t start, but if he doesn’t practice on Thursday, he can’t play. Holtz is confident that Jenkins would be cleared to practice. 

CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Connecticut, hamstring

Next game: at Western Michigan, Saturday, 2 p.m. ET (ESPN3)

Senior Wreh-Wilson, a captain, is probable for the Huskies’ trip to Western Michigan on Saturday. The Huskies will need him against the Broncos, who average 292 passing yards per game, 25th in the country. Western Michigan quarterback Alex Carder is tied for second in the MAC with seven touchdown passes.

RB Montel Harris, Temple, hamstring

Next game: at Penn State, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPN2)

Harris injured his hamstring in the season-opener against Villanova but has rested since Aug. 31 and is expected to play against the Nittany Lions. The Owls will need his rugged style against Penn State’s gritty linebackers.

LT Justin Pugh, Syracuse, shoulder

Next game: at Minnesota, Saturday, 8 p.m. ET (Big Ten Network)

Syracuse will be without left tackle Justin Pugh when it travels to 3-0 Minnesota on Saturday. His backup, sophomore Sean Hickey, has been doing an excellent job protecting Ryan Nassib, who leads the third-most potent passing offense in college football (379 ypg).

RB Dominique Brown, Louisville, knee

Next game: at Florida International, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN3) 

Brown, the Cardinals’ top-returning rusher, hasn’t played this year and is questionable for Saturday’s game. The 20th ranked Cardinals’ running back duo of Senorise Perry and Jeremy Wright have combined for 528 yards and seven touchdowns.

Big 12 Injury Report

RB Waymon James, TCU, knee

Next game: vs. Virginia, Saturday, noon ET (ESPN)

James is out for the year after sustaining the injury in the fourth quarter of last Saturday’s win at Kansas State. Senior Matthew Tucker, who has 19 carries for 100 yards this season, is expected to be the replacement.

LB Arthur Brown, Kansas State, ankle

Next game: at Oklahoma, Saturday, 7:50 p.m. ET (FOX)

Brown suffered the ankle injury last weekend against North Texas but is expected to play this weekend in Norman. He’s the team’s leading tackler with 28 stops.

S Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma, ankle

Next game: vs. Kansas State, Saturday, 7:50 p.m. ET (FOX)

Jefferson, one of the leaders on the Sooners’ defense, was on the field for every snap in Monday’s practice and will play Saturday. He injured his ankle on Sept. 8 and sat out practice last week during Oklahoma’s off week. The Sooners are fortunate to have him back against the most potent offense they’ve faced this season. Kansas State has averaged 46 points per game through three games.

Pac-12 Injury Report

QB Jeff Tuel, Washington State, knee

Next game: vs. Colorado, Saturday, 4 p.m. ET (FX)

Tuel, who has completed 50 of 71 throws this year for 400 yards, is questionable for Saturday’s game. Coach Mike Leach isn’t revealing who will start Saturday, but he may be leaning toward backup Connor Halliday, who had four touchdowns last week and led the Cougars to victory against UNLV.

OG Jeff Baca, UCLA, head

Next game: vs. Oregon State, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC)

Coach Jim Mora said the senior will likely play vs. Oregon State. He’s part of a line responsible for the fifth-best rushing offense (311 ypg) in college football.

C Khaled Holmes, USC, ankle

Next game: vs. California, Saturday, 6 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network)

Holmes missed last Saturday’s upset against Stanford and is questionable for this weekend’s matchup. The Trojans had just 26 rushing yards last week when he was out. His backup, freshman Cyrus Hobbi, struggled against the Cardinal, including missed blocks, awkward snaps, and a costly holding penalty.

K Andrei Heidari, USC, knee

Next game: vs. California, Saturday, 6 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network)

Heidari underwent surgery earlier this month to repair a torn meniscus and is still recovering. He won’t play Saturday. Heidari has played in just one game this season and hit his only field goal attempt.

TE Spencer Hagan, Cal, knee

Next game: at USC, Saturday, 6 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network)

Hagan may be out a while after sustaining a knee injury in Columbus against Ohio State last weekend. The 6-5 TE doesn't have any catches this season.

Big Ten Injury Report

RB Damon Bullock, Iowa, head

Next game: vs. Central Michigan, Saturday, noon ET (Big Ten Network)

Bullock left last weekend’s game vs. Northwen Iowa after a knee-to-head collision and is doubtful for this weekend’s game. FB Mark Weisman, who had three touchdowns last week, will start in his place.

DE Pete Massaro, Penn State, shoulder

Next game: vs. Temple, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC)

Massaro, who missed last week’s game vs. Navy, is out again this weekend. The Nittany Lions’ defense has been stout, allowing just 16 points per game, the 28th fewest in the country. DT Donovan Smith is listed as day-to-day.

RB Rex Burkhead, Nebraska, knee

Next game: vs. Idaho State, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (Big Ten Network)

Burkhead is “awfully close,” according to running backs coach Ron Brown, but coach Bo Pelini said last week they won’t play him unless he’s 100 percent. The Husker offense has fared pretty well without him. His backup, Ameer Abdullah, has 367 yards and four touchdowns so far.

QB Nathan Scheelhaase, Illinois, ankle

Next game: vs. Louisiana Tech, Saturday, 8 p.m. ET (Big Ten Network)

Scheelhaase injured his ankle in the season-opener against Western Michigan and is close to 100 percent, coach Tim Beckman said on Wednesday. Scheelhaase said he feels better than he did at this point last week and he expects to play.

WR Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin, chest

Next game: vs. UTEP, Saturday, noon ET (ESPN2)

The junior will play vs. the Miners on Saturday. Abbrederis took a huge hit to his chest in the loss to Oregon State and sat out last week's game vs. Utah State. He provides the Badgers with their biggest receiving threat.
