Rutgers senior WR Janarion Grant's season-ending right ankle injury occurred just past the cut-off to apply for a medical redshirt year.

The NCAA says a player applying for a medical redshirt cannot have participated in more than 30 percent of the season. After playing Iowa, Rutgers is one-third of the way through its 12-game schedule. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound speedster broke his ankle against the Hawkeyes. His collegiate career, barring a miracle, is over.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that redshirt junior WR ArDarius Stewart is day-to-day with a knee injury.

Stewart banged up his knee against Ole Miss two weekends ago and subsequently sat out Saturday's romp-of-a-win over Kent State. Late last week, SEC Country's Marq Burnett speculated that the injury could be severe enough to keep the 6-foot-1, 204-pound redshirt junior from playing against Kentucky this Saturday. For the time being, though, he has not been ruled out for that contest. Prior to sustaining his knee injury, Stewart had snagged 13 passes for 205 yards and a trio of touchdowns.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said that sophomore RB Damien Harris is day-to-day with an ankle injury.

Harris sustained a right ankle injury on Alabama's first drive against Kent State on Saturday. He did not return to that contest and Saban is being predictably tight-lipped as to Harris' overall health. "Day-to-day" is certainly much more encouraging than "questionable" or "doubtful," but there just isn't a ton of information to go on, here.

Oregon received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 ATH Jaylon Redd.

The Ducks have dropped back-to-back contests against Nebraska and Colorado over the past two weekends, making Redd's Monday commitment something of a nice momentary diversion. Oregon has told the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder that they envision utilizing him in similar fashion to Charles Nelson, who has played both corner and wide receiver during his time in the program. "It tells me they want me to show my abilities and not limit me in anything," Redd explained after Oregon initially offered to him. "That’s really good." He might be committed to Oregon, but official visits to other programs are expected, here. He took one to Nebraska earlier this season and is planning to visit (in either official or unofficial capacity) UCLA, USC, Arizona and and Arizona State before all is said and done. He ranks as Rivals' No. 98 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle.

Texas senior OL Kent Perkins (DWI) has been suspended for Saturday's contest against Oklahoma State.

Perkins was arrested and charged with a DWI early on Friday morning. Per the probable-cause affadavit, the 6-foot-5, 320-pounder was found asleep in his vehicle at the drive-in of a Raising Cane's restaurant at around 3:00 a.m.. When asked to move his car, he drove away before crashing in a nearby parking lot. In addition to his one-game suspension, he will undergo counseling and perform community service.

Alabama HC Nick Saban expressed dismay over LSU's mid-season firing of Les Miles.

Said Saban, "A man wins a national championship and two SEC titles, and he doesn’t make it through the season?" The Mad Hatter was fired on Sunday after several listless performances by the Tigers, including Saturday's 18-13 loss to Auburn. Miles has already expressed the hope that he might coach again soon. Or as he told Dan Patrick, "I don't golf. I play no tennis." For his career with the Tigers, Miles held a 114-34 record.

Michigan redshirt senior CB Jeremy Clark will miss the remainder of the 2016 season after tearing his ACL against Penn State on Saturday.

Michigan might have blown out the Nittany Lions on Saturday, but even with the victory, it looks like they did suffer one loss. HC Jim Harbaugh confirmed on Monday that the 6-foot-4, 206-pound Clark will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2016 campaign after tearing his ACL in the second half of this weekend's win. Clark had started the first four games of the season, logging 10 tackles and three pass breakups along the way. Harbaugh indicated that the team will look into petitioning the NCAA for a sixth-year of eligibility on Clark's behalf now that he has been lost for the season.

Cincinnati HC Tommy Tuberville indicated that he is hopeful that sophomore QB Hayden Moore (ankle) will be able to play against USF on Saturday.

Moore sat out Saturday's win over Miami (OH) due to an ankle injury, presumably suffered against Houston in the previous game. Redshirt freshman QB Ross Trail started in his place and would likely draw the start once more should Moore be unable to rock and/or roll in this weekend's upcoming showdown with USF. Fallen angel Gunner Kiel will remain the Bearcats' No. 3 quarterback until further notice.

Alabama redshirt junior WR Robert Foster is day-to-day with a knee injury.

Foster sat out Saturday's win over Kent State after tweaking his knee early in the practice week run-up to that contest. Nothing serious here, though, and the 6-foot-2, 194-pounder could well play against Kentucky this weekend. Assuming HC Nick Saban actually wants to play him. This season, Foster has logged a mere four offensive touches.
Sep 26 - 2:21 PM

Nebraska senior WR Alonzo Moore (shoulder) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Illinois.

While Moore has played in all four of the Cornhuskers' games to date, he has been fighting through a shoulder injury over the past two weeks. For the season as a whole, the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder is working to a 12-310-2 receiving line. Though he is currently listed as doubtful, he shouldn't be considered an automatic scratch against Illinois. He has already proven to be a bionic man several times this season.

New Mexico State junior RB Larry Rose III is day-to-day with a thigh injury.

Thankfully, this thigh injury is said to be unrelated to the sports hernia surgery that forced Rose to miss the first three games of the season. He returned to action against Troy on Saturday, rushing for 56 yards on 12 carries before being lifted with this latest health concern. The 6-foot-11, 184-pound junior's status for this weekend's upcoming showdown with Louisiana-Lafayette should become more clear over the course of the practice week.

LSU five-star 2017 verbal DT commit Tyler Shelvin described the firing of LSU HC Les Miles as "devastating."

Rivals reached out to a number of LSU commits to gauge their reaction to Miles' firing. Shelvin -- who ranks as the outlet's No. 8 overall prospect for 2017 -- was particularly crushed, saying, "I called him a lot and whenever he needed to talk to me he would contact me. Every time I visited there we had meetings in his office, so we had a tight relationship." Several prospects, including four-star recruits in T Adrian Easley and QB Justin Rogers, expressed a strong hope that LSU would retain their current position coaches. No surprise there. As ILB Tyler Taylor put it, "[Les Miles is] not the guy who recruited me."

Alabama HC Nick Saban confirmed that junior CB Tony Brown (suspension) will be eligible to play against Kentucky on Saturday.

Brown sat out the first four games of the season due to an NCAA suspension reportedly stemming from an incident last December. In 11 games a year ago, the 6-foot, 196-pounder recorded 16 tackles and a forced fumble. It is not yet known how much Brown might play against Kentucky on Saturday, but at the very least, he will be an option for Saban as the Crimson Tide look to build on their 4-0 start to the 2016 campaign.

Utah State senior RB Devante Mays was forced out of Saturday's game against Air Force after just one carry due to a leg injury.

Mays was already nursing a leg ailment suffered against USC in the second week of the season, one which forced him to sit out the next week's contest with Arkansas State. While the 5-foot-11, 228-pound senior did manage one carry versus Air Force on Saturday, he went down injured after that lone tote of the rock and was in visible pain with a right leg injury. He had to be helped off the field and could not put any significant weight on the right leg. Details have yet to emerge as to the injury's severity. Should Mays be unable to play against Boise State this coming weekend, Tonny Lindsey will get the call.
Sep 26 - 1:07 PM

Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that junior RB Nick Chubb (ankle) will be evaluated over the course of the practice week.

While Smart expressed optimism that Chubb might be able to play against Tennessee on Saturday, he wouldn't commit to it outright. Said Smart, "He’s gonna continue to rehab really hard. We’re obviously hopeful he’ll be able to do something. But we won’t know more until later in the week." The 5-foot-10, 228-pounder tweaked his ankle against Ole Miss on Saturday. After rushing for 222 yards against North Carolina in the season-opener, Chubb has managed an even 200 yards combined against Nicholls State, Missouri and Ole Miss.
