Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb (ankle) did not practice on Tuesday.

Chubb has not practiced since spraining his ankle in Saturday's loss to Ole Miss. HC Kirby Smart is hopeful that the 5-foot-10, 228-pound junior will be able to play against Tennessee this coming weekend. Sony Michel will receive the bulk of the work versus the Vols should this ankle injury keep Chubb out of action.

Syracuse sophomore QB Eric Dungey was not made available to the media on Tuesday due to his receiving treatment for an undisclosed injury.

Whether Dungey suffered this injury in practice or whether it is something he sustained during Saturday's win over UConn is not yet known. His playing status for this weekend's game against Notre Dame should become more clear as Saturday's kickoff nears. Through four games, the 6-foot-3, 202-pound Dungey has thrown for 1,367 yards with a 9/3 TD/INT ratio.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III (thigh) participated in Tuesday's practice.

Rose injured his thigh in Saturday's showdown with Troy. That was his first game of the season -- a sports hernia surgery in August stole the first three games of the campaign from the 6-foot-1, 184-pounder. Barring a setback during the week, it does not appear that this current thigh injury will keep Rose from suiting up and playing against Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

Charges against suspended LSU junior DL Davon Godchaux have been dropped.

Godchaux was arrested Monday on charges of false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery and child endangerment. In a statement, East Baton Rouge district attorney Hillar Moore said, "The primary basis for this change of booking was the inconsistent statements of [the victim], the statements of Mr. Godchaux and the physical evidence at the scene, and not her request to dismiss these charges." The 6-foot-4, 293-pound Godchaux remains indefinitely suspended for the time being.

In the wake of LSU's firing of Les Miles, Louisville HC Bobby Petrino said, "I'm not interested in going anywhere."

"I'm very fortunate to be the head coach here at the University of Louisville, very happy about that," Petrino said, "very glad I have the support of our athletic director Tom Jurich." He is one of a number of coaches who have immediately come out to deny interest in taking over for the Mad Hatter at LSU. Urban Meyer and David Shaw have also confirmed their respective commitments to Ohio State and Stanford, while FSU HC Jimbo Fisher and Houston HC Tom Herman both said that LSU has not contacted them. Ed Orgeron is currently serving as interim head coach.

Michigan State redshirt senior ILB Riley Bullough (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day.

Bullough missed last week's loss to Wisconsin with the injury. Sparty coach Mark Dantonio, keeping it close to the vest, would only say that Bullough was battling an injury that he aggravated in Wk. 2 against Notre Dame. Michigan State gets Indiana this weekend.

While Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says redshirt sophomore QB DeShone Kizer will start against Syracuse, the coach indicated that Kizer's play was "below standard" and "not acceptable."

Kelly told the media that all positions would be evaluated following Saturday's loss to Duke, even opening up the possibility of playing third-string QB Brandon Wimbush. Yep, it's panic time for the 1-3 Irish. If Kelly is looking for another scapegoat, he ought to keep focusing on the defense. You can nitpick the turnovers if you like, but Kizer is a No. 1 overall draft prospect who has thrown for 1,096 yards and an 11/3 TD/INT rate on 62.1-percent completions and 9.45 yards per attempt with almost 200 yards rushing and four ground scores despite getting jerked around by Kelly and his staff. Put it this way: If Kizer is the problem, then there's no solution.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes that Ole Miss senior TE Evan Engram's ticket into Day 2 pick this spring is a "definite possibility" if Engram keeps it up and works out well.

We think Engram will likely test well, as he's proven to be a Jordan Reed-like collegiate weapon. He doesn't block much, but Engram is averaging more than 15 yards per catch on his 20 receptions.

Western Michigan HC P.J. Fleck says Central Michigan senior QB Cooper Rush will "be an incredibly high draft pick."

"He’s an incredible leader," Fleck said. "He gets everybody in the right spot. You can see that everybody leans on him and that’s the definition of a true leader. Everybody looks to him to be his best all the time and he has been. He’s incredibly consistent. He's very accurate, has a big arm. He’s very, very smart and makes elite decisions and you can tell his leadership runs true through the entire football team." Rush ranks No. 8 in passing yards (1,359) and has completed 62.6 percent of his passes for a 9/4 TD/INT rate. The Chips get Fleck's Broncos this weekend.

Heading into the season, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "not a single Syracuse senior was considered draftable by scouts," an opinion Syracuse redshirt senior WR Amba Etta-Tawo "is quickly changing."

Etta-Tawo is putting up stupefying numbers so far -- 40 catches for 706 yards and five touchdowns in four games -- and, if it's possible, seems to be getting better. On Saturday, for instance, he caught 12 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns against UConn, a team that features two future NFL players in its secondary (cornerback Jamar Summers and safety Obi Melifonwu). The analyst notes that HC Dino Babers recently developed Roger Lewis (2016 UDFA on the New York Giants) and Gehrig Dieter (averaging 26 ypr at Alabama). The Orange get Notre Dame, 4-0 Wake Forest and Virginia Tech in the next three weeks, giving Etta-Tawo a few showcase matchups.

Central Michigan junior WR Eric Cooper (foot) has been ruled out for the season.

Rough day for the Chips, who also lost fellow WR Jesse Kroll (knee) for the year. Cooper was set to be a secondary option this year. He had four catches for 41 yards before his 2016 campaign came to an abrupt end.

USF redshirt sophomore QB Asiantii Woulard is no longer on the team.

A ballyhooed four-star recruit, Woulard flamed out at UCLA before doing the same at USF. A fractured foot had put him on the shelf early on. That injury allowed redshirt Brett Kean to steal Woulard's backup job, pushing Woulard out the door at his second school. If Woulard is close to graduating, he'd make an interesting transfer option for a Sun Belt or Conference USA team in need of immediate signal-calling help.

Interim LSU football coach Ed Orgeron made the call to fire OC Cam Cameron.

Orgeron replaced Les Miles on an interim basis after the latter was fired Sunday. He apparently chose to replace Cameron by moving Steve Ensminger -- formerly an offensive coordinator at Clemson, Louisiana Tech, McNeese State and Texas A&M -- from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator. Orgeron has indicated he wants to open the offense up, which is a sage inclination.

Oregon sophomore RB Tony Brooks-James had 16 carries for 120 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's home loss to Colorado 41-38.

A leg injury cost starting tailback Royce Freeman this one, giving Brooks-James his big chance. Brooks-James, who has run a 6.79 second 60-meter dash, is a jitterbug athlete that the Ducks will use all over the formation when Freeman comes back. The 5-foot-9, 185-pounder has scored six times this year. Brooks-James figures to get plenty of touches if Freeman can't give it a go at Washington State on Saturday.

Ole Miss redshirt senior QB Chad Kelly "has the talent of to be a Day 2 pick," writes ESPN's Todd McShay.

Kelly completed 18-of-24 attempts for 282 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-14 win over Georgia. "It was one of his best outings in terms of throwing the ball with consistent accuracy," McShay wrote. "He has good mobility and intriguing raw ability, but he needs to continue to make good decisions on and off the field."
