Pitt redshirt senior LB Quintin Wirginis will miss the rest of the season after suffering a non-contact injury to his knee.

A huge, huge loss for the Panthers. Wirginis also missed all of the 2017 season with a non-contact injury to his knee, but he came back in 2018 and was leading the team in tackles, tackles for loss and forced fumbles. The Pitt defense wasn't exactly on fire with the 6-foot-2, 250-pound linebacker on the field. Now it's without its best playmaker and have a game with Notre Dame coming on Saturday. Wirginis could get a sixth year of eligibility if he chooses to apply for one.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch (finger) has not been practicing in advance of the team's Birmingham Bowl date with Memphis.

Dortch (5'9/217) injured his finger in a blowout win over Duke to close out the regular season. The Winston-Salem Journal's Conor O'Neill passes along that the injury was "more serious than initially thought." While the redshirt sophomore does have a few more days in which to get right -- the Birmingham Bowl will kick off on Saturday, Dec. 22 -- he should be considered questionable to play upcoming. It would be a major loss if he can't play in the contest, as Dortch is as reliable as they come. For the 2018 regular season he posted an 89-1078-8 receiving line.

Kentucky junior RB Benny Snell declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Snell (5'11/223) has been the definition of a workhorse during his career at Kentucky, topping 1,000 while registering double-digit touchdowns in each of his three seasons on campus. For the just-completed campaign, he logged 1,330 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. Physicality is the buzzword with Snell. He's also a strong pass-blocker and scheme-versatile to boot. What to look for during his evaluating process -- Snell's athletic testing numbers later this winter are going to be crucial, as he's not the fastest nor shiftiest of backs. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller forwarded him as a potential Day 2 selection in his Dec. 7 scouting notebook. Miller, it should be noted, does not believe there is a Round 1 running back in the draft-eligible class for 2019. This seems to be a consensus view at this juncture. We'll see if things change as the process moves along on its merry way.

Texas sophomore RB Toneil Carter will transfer.

Carter (5'11/210) signed with Texas as a four-star prospect in the 2017 class, but found himself buried on the depth chart in 2018. He did not receive a carry for the campaign, this after rushing for 252 yards and three touchdowns as a true freshman last fall. Because Carter did not see the field this year, he'll be eligible to take a redshirt for the current season. He will still have to sit out the 2019 campaign to satisfy transfer regulations, at least barring a move out of the FBS.

Kansas State junior RB Alex Barnes declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Barnes (6'1/225) steps into the draft light on the heels of a career-best season in which he rushed for 1,355 yards (5.3 YPC) and 12 touchdowns. Brad Kelly of The Draft Network notes that the Kansas State product "has NFL-level athletic ability" and has the vision to take advantage of holes, though the analyst notes that he can sometimes tend to dance a little too much in the backfield. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell sees Barnes going off the board somewhere between Rounds 3 and 5.

Former Florida State redshirt sophomore T Josh Ball will not be returning to Florida State.

Ball (6'8/323) was dismissed from the program over the summer due to allegations of dating violence levied against him, but there had been some speculation recently that he might be returning to the team. That's no longer in the cards, if it ever was, as Ball took to Twitter on Thursday to say that he would not be coming back. The former four-star prospect spent the 2018 season at the JUCO level after starting the final seven games for Florida State during the 2017 campaign. Whether he will resurface with another FBS program remains to be seen.
Dec 14 - 2:11 PM

Toledo redshirt junior RB Art Thompkins will transfer as a graduate.

Thompkins (5'8/180) had his moments during the 2018 campaign, finishing up with 563 rushing yards (5.7 YPC) and six touchdowns across 12 games played. The emergence of redshirt freshman Bryant Koback down the stretch may have served as writing on the wall that playing time would be a fight in 2019 had he remained at Toledo. As a graduate transfer, Thompkins will be eligible to play immediately with his new team during the coming season. He'll make for a nice roster add upcoming.

The Twin Cities Pioneer Press' Andy Greder reports that Minnesota HC P.J. Fleck will receive a one-year contract extension through the 2023 season.

Fleck initially agreed to a five-year deal when he initially joined the program in the winter of 2017 and likewise received a one-year extension a year ago. These kinds of little rollovers are not uncommon. Somewhat humorously, Greder relays that during Thursday's finance and operations meeting, school president Eric Kaler cited Fleck's "recent acquisition of the axe" as part of the reason he was deserving of an extension. The axe being referenced is The Paul Bunyan Axe, which Minnesota took home when they beat Wisconsin to end the regular season.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Utah State will hire Utah co-special teams coordinator/LB coach Justin Ena to serve as defensive coordinator.

Ena has been part of HC Kyle Whittingham's staff since 2015. While he does not have coordinating experience at the FBS level, he is not completely unfamiliar with the staff position, having served as DC with both Weber State (2014) and Southern Utah (2010-13). Aggies HC Gary Andersen is all about Ena and was pumping up the future hire (unnamed at the time) during his introductory press conference at USU earlier this month, saying that he had planned on calling defensive plays himself before he zeroed in on his future coordinator.

Memphis junior RB Darrell Henderson will not play in the team's Birmingham Bowl date with Wake Forest on Dec. 22.

No real surprise with this one after Henderson declared for the draft on Wednesday. The electric junior sprints off into the sunset having rushed for 1,909 yards (8.9 YPC) and 22 touchdowns during the 2018 season. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller views him as a potential Day 2 selection for the spring. As for Memphis' plight sans Henderson, Patrick Taylor (1,012 yards, 15 touchdowns) is about as able a backup as you will find in the country. He'll look to put the hurt on the Demon Deacons -- now in a lead role -- upcoming.
Dec 13 - 6:19 PM

Uncommitted five-star 2019 DE Kayvon Thibodeaux will make his pledge during halftime of the Gildan New Mexico Bowl on Saturday.

All the more reason to tune in for Saturday's showdown between North Texas and Utah State (a fascinating matchup in its own right). That game will kick off at 2:00 PM EST on Saturday and will air on ESPN. Thibodeaux (6'5/220) is deciding between Florida, Alabama, FSU, USC and Oregon. On the 247Sports composite board, the star-in-training ranks as the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2019 class. He possesses all the speed you need off the edge, as well as a sharp mind for how to operate within the flow of a given game.
Dec 13 - 5:29 PM

Outgoing Miami DC Manny Diaz will coach in the team's Pinstripe Bowl showdown with Wisconsin on Dec. 27.

Diaz was introduced as Temple's new head coach on Thursday, but he is not completely done with the Hurricanes, explaining to reporters that he "just wanted to be with [the Miami team] one last time." Split attention between a new job -- with the early signing window about to open -- and an old one during bowl season is a tale as old as time, though not always a tale which ends in clean fashion.
