Even though Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell left Saturday's blowout loss with a hip injury, Mr. Sunshine himself, coach Bill Lynch, expects to have his starter back when the Hoosiers travel to Landover, Maryland to play a "home game" against Penn State.

Hopefully Chappell is healthy enough to play and play well. Hopefully you don't have to start him this week.

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell left the Wisconsin game late in the first half with an apparent left leg injury.

Check back this week to see if this will keep Chappell out of your lineup for any extended period of time.

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell was wearing a walking boot on Monday to protect an injured foot/ankle. “I’m just trying to keep it immobilized for now,” said Chappell, whose left foot was in the boot. “Keep moving on it, but I’ll be fine.”

Even if Chappell is able to play this week against Iowa, he is not a good start.

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell threw for 279 yards and a touchdown, but was intercepted three times by Illinois on Saturday. 

With running back Darius Willis out for the year, Indiana has become a predictable offense.  Chappell may see a down turn in stats unless the Hoosiers can find a running game.

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell threw for just 106 yards and no touchdowns while being picked off two times against Ohio State on Saturday.

Chappell quickly found out he wasn't playing against the likes of Towson, Western Kentucky, and Akron.  Don't worry, Chappell will be fine once again next week.

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns against Ball State on Saturday.  Chappell also found pay dirt with a QB sneak.

Beautiful day for Chappell owners.  You have to love the bonus 1-yard touchdown run from a pure throwing quarterback.

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell is ready to build upon his impressive (nearly 3,000 passing yards) 2009 campaign. Thanks to a great receiving corps and a talented runner Chappell feels they've "got a shot at" leading the conference in passing.

It's amazing the number of fantasy-worthy quarterbacks in the Big Ten, and Chappell is certainly among this group. What's that about three yards and a cloud of dust?

Damarlo Belcher had a nice start to the season, catching six balls for 97 yards and a TD from QB Ben Chappell in Thursday night's win over Eastern Kentucky. 

Consider the opponent, but someone will be catching the balls at IU considering the state of their running game.

Ben Chappell, quarterback for the Indiana Hoosiers, went 14-of-22 passing for 205 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's spring game in Bloomington.

Look for Chappell to be much more confident under center now that he now longer has to look over his shoulder at Kellen Lewis.

Indiana head coach Bill Lynch has decreed that Ben Chappell is his starting quarterback and will see the first-team snaps during practice, thus relegating former quarterback Kellen Lewis to wide receiver, where's he's currently listed as a starter.

Lynch is attempting to make IU into more of a "downhill running football team" and he feels the best way to do this is with a traditional quarterback under center. Chappell has a fraction of the fantasy value that Kellen Lewis would have as starting quarterback, though we still don't think we've seen Kellen Lewis take his last snap as Indiana quarterback.

The Indiana Hoosiers looked like a fairly solid passing offense this afternoon -- at least for the first half -- as sophomore Ben Chappell went 11-of-20 for 126 yards and a touchdown through the first two quarters of today's matchup with the Wisconsin Badgers. Problem was that Chappell left the game late in the second quarter with a head injury and would not return for the remainder of the contest.

Kellen Lewis came in relief of Chappell, but went 0-for-5 passing, along with one rush for four yards. No word yet how serious the injury to Chappell is.

Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell was at practice Monday despite some bruised ribs suffered in the upset over Northwestern last Saturday.

Chappell, who has started the last two games, will battle Kellen Lewis who is also back from an ankle injury.
