What is the injury status for Saturday?

Postby Ruckus on Wed Aug 30, 2006 10:41 am

Does anybody know where the injury list stands? Who is out for Saturday? Last I heard, Brian Kemp is out with a hamstring. Anybody else? Any word on the kicking duties?

Heard that Layton Baker has a shoulder injury and it could be serious.That would be a serious blow to the D-Line. Let's hope for the best. Layton is a great player.

oh crap. We don't have bad luck, we don't have any luck at all. I am not sure we could lose a more important player at this point.

So is Baker out for you all or is he playing? Is he out for the season? Good to have KJ back in the conference.

This is from yodays GoUpstate.com;

Young getting his turn

TODD SHANESY, Staff Writer
Published September 6, 2006



Early season injuries to key football players are blessings in disguise, according to Wofford defensive end and eternal optimist Ryan Young.

"Sometimes there's a silver lining," Young said. "You find out just what some guys can do to help the team later in the season. It's almost a positive."

Sure, easy for him to say. He got a starting job out of the deal.

Wofford's good fortune veiled as imminent danger is at defensive end and cornerback. The Terriers are down to third string at those positions for Saturday night's home game against Coastal Carolina. They will start a sophomore lineman with one career game and one career tackle (Young), and a true freshman back who has never played (Mychael Johnson or Izel Jenkins)."

Starting cornerbacks Zac Grey (shoulder) and Filmon Dawkins (collar bone) are both sidelined with injuries suffered last week against South Carolina State. They stood and watched practice Tuesday alongside previous starting cornerback Brian Kemp (hamstring). The field should have been oval, Wofford was missing so many corners.

Maurice Faulk, just coming back from a hamstring pull, gets the start at one cornerback spot. On the other side, either Johnson (5-10, 170) or Jenkins (5-6, 157).

"We have confidence in the younger guys," said Grey, who is also a kick returner for the Terriers. "It's not like that's a big dilemma. They're good players and they'll hold their own."

At defensive end, Young climbed to No. 2 on the depth chart when Michael Combest was hurt in a scrimmage, then to No. 1 when the same thing happened to all-conference candidate player Layton Baker. Young did not play as a freshman in 2004 and missed the entire 2005 season with a shoulder injury.

"People are going to get hurt. When you strap it on, you understand that," Young said. "It's part of the game. You know it's part of the game. You go to the next guy in line and say, 'Your turn.' "

Johnson and Jenkins have not just recently been thrown into the mix. They've gotten regular reps since Kemp and Faulk went down in the first week of practice.

"We tell the freshmen they're a play away," junior starting safety Dan Tavani said. "That's always true, especially in our program. We're not bringing in a hundred guys to camp. Everybody's got to partake."

The Terriers made a defensive back out of freshman wide receiver Buck Brown (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) in preseason camp, and now he's listed as the second-string free safety behind Brian Ford.

"We're trying to look in all areas as far as where we can gain some help," Wofford head coach Mike Ayers said. "We'll do the best we can. It's too late to shift somebody from offense right now to be ready to go, but that may be something that we have to do in the long-range plan."

Wofford may keep all the injured players -- even Kemp, who seems to be getting closer -- sidelined until the end of the month. The Terriers play at South Carolina next week, then have a bye before opening the Southern Conference with a home game Sept. 30 against Furman.

Regardless of the need, Ayers said, nobody will be rushed back into the lineup.

"We're not going to take that risk," he said. "We've never done that. Winning is important, but it's not that important."

Are Baker (de) / Combest (De) / Leventis (lb?) out for the year? I think your corners will be back by the time you play us, right? Just in time for you to beat us :(...or at least Kemp should be back for us? Are Grey and Dawkins more seriously hurt?

He was a Fr. who has a very large amount of potential. He was moving up the Depth chart, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if he will be next center after McKenna. You hate to see any young person go down with an ACL injury.
