it's a major award
Just wondered if anyone had info yet on both our injuries and those of MSU players for Saturday.
I haven't seen much other than Shaw is likely to play.
Haven't seen this posted yet, but just heard word (credit varsityblue Twitter) that Mike Jones has a broken leg. I believe he was playing WLB behind Jonas Mouton. No idea how long he will be out for, but he will have surgery.
EDIT: In addition, Brandon Herron has a sprained ankle and is day-to-day.
Unlike football who is taking near meaningless practice, baseball has an potential injury in a crucial stretch of their season... again. From the Daily's CiL, LaMarre went 1st to 3rd in the bottom of the 6th and came up stretching his hamstring. He stayed in and scored a run on a deep sacrifice fly, but he was removed from the game after that point.
No word on if this was just a tweak and the lineup change was precautionary or otherwise.
Lorenz enters the game at third, Kittle (started at third) to left.
I just noticed a thread over on Scout that Josh Furman was injured in a playoff game, and some are calling the injury "serious." Somebody referred to an ankle while others were calling it a knee injury. Anybody know anything more definitive? Tom?
I know I heard something about this on the forums and it has been kinda beaten to death but I saw Tate on campus this morning and I can confirm that he did have his arm in a sling. I was just wondering what everybody thoughts were on this. He didn't seem to baby it too much as he was moving his arm slightly. That encouraged me slightly but the fact that's in the sling is worries me some.
- Everyone already knew Molk was out. That's nothing new
- Rodriguez has already said that Moosman will start at center in Molk's place. His sill being included on the injury report probably just means he'll play despite not being quite 100%
- Tim McAvoy is unlikely to figure into the offensive line rotation any time soon, unless there are more injuries. His ability to (almost) play is not a big factor one way or the other.
- Rodriguez had previously thought Williams was fine, and the fact that he probably won't play isn't encouraging. Still, that hopefully won't be a factor against Indiana, and it will also give the younger guys some playing time. Maybe we'll even see Emilien on defense to spell Kovacs!
