Official Injury Report for Indiana Game

Submitted by goblue232 on September 30th, 2010 at 9:54 PM

Here's the official injury report for the Indiana game:

Jones, Mike                     Leg
Shaw, Michael                 Knee
Toussaint, Fitzgerald       Shoulder
Van Slyke, Jared             Clavicle
Williams, Mike                 Head
Woolfolk, Troy                 Ankle

Ferrara, John                  Hand

Herron, Brandon             Ankle
Johnson, Carvin              Knee
Robinson, Denard           Knee

It'll be good to have Herron and Carvin back.  Hopefully Fitz and Shaw will be back for MSU. Would have been nice to see them both after last week.

we will see Smith have a solid day since he figures to be the feature running back. All though it may not matter depending on how many times Denard carries.

I hate that nagging voice that keeps me from predicting a blowout this Saturday.  The only fact said voice has is the Shaw injury.  I don't want to even touch the Dilithium could get injured idea, but the Shaw injury gives me a 1% anxiety about our ability to break a big play with our RBs.  After Denard puts up 2 quick tds this anxiety shall fade away, right?

Something good comes out of this, we get a couple of solid players back on defense back. Not that it will cure all of our problems but hopefully it will help plug up a few holes.

I was sure Tate would start before the season, but now I would watch with horror if he starts on Saturday.  I still think Tate is a great QB, but I've been under Denard immersion for the last 4 weeks now and I just have to watch him carve up IU.

I'm hoping this turns out to be a blessing in disguise, with Hopkins/Cox/Smith breaking out with a big game. Would have loved to see more Toussaint though, as running through gaping holes doesn't show a whole lot.

Not to be freaking out, but if Denard is still feeling that knee, that's not good. I hope playing him Saturday doesn't make matters worse...

And, my God, is Fitz ever going to be up to speed. I was really looking forward to seeing what he could do...

I'd love to see them start the game with both Tate and Denard on the field. Line Tate up in shotgun with Denard right next to him and let the defense shit their pants. I think we see this formation later in the season. The sheer number of possibilities are endless.

I think it's expected of RR to have Denard on the injury report since he was "injured" last game. I'm sure he'll play the entire game though barring further injury. (wood knocked)


I don't think we see Toussant for another few weeks. He clearly wasn't 100% in the last game and that lead him to getting a new injury. He just needs to be fresh for the juggernaught final two games of the season. Hopefully we can sneak one or both of them!

I've seen this a bunch of times online and WE DID IT against Ohio State last year and I don't get the logic. Why would defense shit their pants more if Denard isn't taking the snap? He's the most versatile, dangerous player on the field and this formation would not give him the ball right away. It makes no sense.

Denard has more than proven he can do everything Tate can do, but much much faster. Why do you want Tate horning in on that action?

None of this is a slight on Tate, of course, he's a very good QB, but he is not dilithium.

Denard is "Probable" because that is the highest level of likelihood short of "not hurt at all."  He's got a bruised knee, which meant he was probably going to be listed.  But he got the best possible listing.

It isn't as if Denard is "probable: 75% to play" while Carvin is "really, really probable: 90% to play" and Brandon Herron is "totally healthy, but still likes hanging out with the hot trainer: 98% to play."
