Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (ankle) was taken to the medical tent in the second half of Thursday's game against Arizona State.
Love (5'10/202) has once again been dealing with ankle injury for much of the campaign, with the issue most recently flaring up after he had his leg rolled up in a loss to Notre Dame several weeks back. He subsequently sat out against Utah, then rested up on bye before starting Thursday's contest. Now injured again. Look for Cameron Scarlett and Trevor Speights to see the bulk of the work for the remainder of the game unless Love manages to return late. Oct 18 - 11:19 PM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (ankle) is expected to play in Thursday's game against Arizona State.

Love (5'10/202) sat out against Utah in Week 6 due to an ankle injury sustained against Notre Dame on Oct. 6, but he had the bye week to rest up and should be good to go on Thursday barring a late setback. The explosive senior has turned in an underwhelming season to date, rushing for just 327 yards (4.3 YPC) and three touchdowns in four games (he's missed two contests due to injury all told). Even if he manages a blistering down-the-stretch finish to the season, he's fallen out of serious Heisman contention.

ESPN's Todd McShay ranks Stanford senior RB Bryce Love 24th on his updated board for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Love is the top running back on McShay's board, scoring a grade of 86 out of a possible 100. It has not been the dominant season we expected from the senior tailback, but injuries have been an issue, as has a mediocre Cardinal offensive line. "Incredibly productive, Love is an explosive runner with the burst to turn the corner and the speed to pull away when he gets a seam," McShay writes. "He has the foot speed to bounce between gaps and make defenders miss." Love will be one of the players to watch over the second half of the season, to be sure.

Stanford HC David Shaw told reporters that he was "hopeful" that senior RB Bryce Love (ankle) can play on Thursday against Arizona State.

Love was unable to play in the 40-21 blowout loss to Utah on October 6, and Stanford was on bye the next week. Love hasn't had the tremendous season we expected after his breakout campaign in 2017, but we've seen what this offense looks like without him. If Love is unable to go, Cameron Scarlett and Trevor Speights would see the majority of the touches against the Sun Devils.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Utah.

Love, who began the season as one of the projected front runners for the Heisman Trophy, suffered the ankle injury during the second half of Stanford's Sept. 29 loss at Notre Dame. With the senior running back out of the lineup, expect junior Cameron Scarlett to get the first shot at breaking through the Utah defense on the ground. Scarlett is followed by sophomores Dorian Maddox and Trevor Speights on the Stanford depth chart.
Oct 6 - 9:12 PM

Stanford HC David Shaw said senior RB Bryce Love will be "a late-week decision" for this weekend's game against Utah.

Love exited last weekend's 38-17 loss at Notre Dame with an ankle injury he suffered after an Irish defender landed on his left limb during a tackle. That's the same ankle that was injured in 2017. Shaw did say that the ankle injury "doesn't look severe" compared with the injury from last season that caused Love to miss a game. The Utes are preparing to face Love. But right now, he should be considered questionable to play.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love limped back to the locker room after suffering an apparent left ankle injury during Saturday's game at Notre Dame.

Love suffered the injury while being tackled by a Notre Dame defender, who landed on the outside of his leg while bringing down the preseason Heisman Trophy candidate. What's so concerning about this injury is that the senior was bothered by his left ankle for much of the 2017 season. If this injury were to linger and/or force Love to miss time, it could put a serious dent in Stanford's Pac-12 title hopes. He finished the night with 73 yards on 17 carries, with 39 of those yards coming on a touchdown.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love ran 19 times for 89 yards and a touchdown in a 38-31 victory over Oregon on Saturday in overtime.

We have an early contender for game of the year. Oregon led at one point 24-7, but Stanford was able to battle back and get the come-from-behind victory in Autzen. Love wasn’t other-worldly, but he made several big plays to help the Cardinal get the comeback, including a score that made it 24-21. The Ducks -- like everyone else -- keyed in on the 2017 Heisman runner-up, but he’s so athletic and instinctive that he’s going to get his. Stanford and Love have another monster game next week when they take on Notre Dame next Saturday.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Oregon.

Love (5'10/202) sat against UC Davis over the weekend, but by all accounts that was just a precautionary measure. Barring any sort of late setback, look for the senior standout to be back in action against the Ducks come Saturday. When last we saw Love, he was gouging USC for 136 yards rushing and a touchdown in an easy Week 2 victory. Cameron Scarlett would fill in for him if the Cardinal opt to play it safe at the last minute come the weekend.
Sep 18 - 8:46 PM

Stanford HC David Shaw said that he expects that senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) will be available for the team's Week 4 showdown with Oregon.

Love (5'10/202) was lifted late in Saturday's win over USC due to an undisclosed injury concern. The Cardinal will play it safe with the star senior this coming weekend, as they'll be playing lesser competition in UC Davis and don't figure to require his dynamic services. Cameron Scarlett will start in his place for that one. We'll keep tabs on Love's status as information becomes available. Nagging injury plagued him down the stretch a year ago.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against UC Davis.

Love (5'10/202) was injured and subsequently taken to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over USC. While Cardinal HC David Shaw said after the contest that he was merely lifted as a precaution, looks like the team will be playing it safe against Saturday's soft matchup versus UC Davis. With the star senior ruled out for this coming weekend, Cameron Scarlett will take lead work. We'll pass along updates on Love's status as information warrants.
Sep 11 - 4:41 PM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love came off the field and went into the locker room in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win against USC due to an undisclosed injury.

Head coach David Shaw said Love was sent off as a precaution after a hard hit, as the Cardinal had the game well in hand at that point. Love was able to gobble up 136 yards with a touchdown on his 22 carries in the 14-point victory against the Trojans. It sounds like he'll be more than ready for next week's game against FCS foe UC-Davis, and he could roll up some huge numbers against the Aggies, too.
Sep 9 - 1:38 AM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love ran for 136 yards and a score on 22 carries in a 17-3 victory over USC on Saturday.

Now that's more like it. Love was completely bottled up by San Diego State in their opener, but Love found much more room in the victory over the Trojans. He showed off his impressive speed on a 59-yard scamper, and he found the end zone for the first time in 2018 with a six-yard score on the opening drive. There were still a few too many negative runs -- not that most were Love's fault -- but overall, a very solid day for the Heisman runner-up. He should have another quality game next Saturday against UC-Davis.
Sep 9 - 12:01 AM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline is curious where Stanford senior RB Bryce Love will go in draft given his skills, size, and heavy workload.

Love was given a first round grade by Pauline, but he is concerned with Love's heavy workload on his 5-foot-9, 200-pound frame. With still double digit games still remaining, Love has already rushed the ball 421 times. Pauline has no questions about his talent, however, saying, "Love quickly changes direction, makes defenders miss and can turn it on in a single step to leave defenders in the dust." Love has a fantastic 7.5 yards per carry average in his Stanford career.
Sep 7 - 1:13 PM

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love ran for 29 yards on 18 carries and caught three passes for 18 yards in a 31-10 victory over San Diego State on Friday.

Love is considered the Heisman favorite coming into the year by many. This won't help those odds. The senior tailback was completely bottled up by the SDSU defense, and outside of a 14-yard run, he was unable to get anything going. It's just one game -- and if there's a positive, he was involved in the passing game -- but this is a tremendously disappointing opener for one of the most electric players in college football. He'll look to get back on track against USC next Saturday.
