Date:

Bowling Green redshirt junior QB Matt Johnson will miss the remainder of the 2014 season due to a hip injury.

In the first game of the season, Johnson completed 25 of 36 attempts for 313 yards and a touchdown in the school's 59-31 loss to Western Kentucky. Johnson was set to run Dino Babers' high octane offense this season, but now redshirt sophomore James Knapke will start against VMI.

Bowling Green suspended sophomore RB Williams Houston for two seasons.

Houston was charged with attempted rape in July and indicted in August in Wood County Common Pleas Court. A university investigation found Houston responsible for "sexual contact without permission." The female victim called police in July when a man "tried to force himself on her." The 19-year-old was arrested in an on-campus residence hall. Houston led the team with 11 rushing touchdowns and rushed for 211 yards as a true freshman last season. It's likely his football career is over.

Former Baylor WR Robbie Rhodes has officially transferred to Bowling Green.

Rhodes was dismissed from Baylor after his true freshman season for undisclosed reasons. He will almost certainly have to redshirt the season, but look out for Rhodes to be a major part of Dino Babers' offensive arsenal in 2015.

Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon re-tore the ACL in his left knee during summer activities.

Gallon missed a large portion of last season after first tearing the ligament in his knee. He created a good amount of buzz last offseason, but Gallon will have to prove himself again on the field if he stands a chance of being drafted. "...I’m not going anywhere. And next year I’ll be ready — and 100 percent," Gallon said.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon could be a third or fourth receiver at the next level if he proves his health this fall.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound receiver missed a large portion of last season following a season-ending knee injury sustained in October. Pauline grades him as a fourth-round prospect. "The big, smooth possession receiver was knocked out midway through the middle part of 2013 with a knee injury," Pauline wrote. "That’s not good news as Gallon displayed average speed before the knee issue but has the size and skill to get consideration as the third/fourth man on the depth chart if he gets his game back on track."

Bowling Green sophomore RB Williams Houston has been charged with attempted rape.

From the Toledo Blade: "The victim told police she had been at the Manville address for a party and fell asleep. She awoke when a man 'tried to force himself on her,' according to a police report. The victim told police she did not know the man, and she fled after she woke up. The victim returned to the Manville address where she met and talked to police. People at the home identified the suspect as Mr. Houston, a sophomore running back on the football team." The 19-year-old remains in custody, and a school spokesperson said: "[W]e are waiting for more details. We’re anticipating more details to come out of it in the next few days. It’s pretty early in the process."

Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon has the "size/athleticism mix that will attract the eyes of evaluators if he can stay healthy and productive," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler

Gallon has been dynamite on the field since his freshman campaign, but he'll have to prove his health this fall following a season-ending knee injury sustained last October. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound receiver was recently graded by draft insider Tony Pauline as a preseason fourth-round prospect.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler pegs Bowling Green redshirt senior ILB D.J. Lynch as "a possible late round prospect."

Lynch led the Falcons, a top-10 defensive unit, in total tackles (85) and tackles for loss (6.0) in 2013. "He is known as a fierce, competitive player between the hashes, seeking the highlight reel hit, but he also needs to keep his emotions under control, playing with both smarts and aggressiveness," Brugler wrote. "Lynch reads the quarterback well, but needs to show better overall awareness in all directions to feel the chess pieces around him. At a hair under 5-foot-11, Lynch doesn't have ideal height and length for the NFL, but players like London Fletcher and Chris Borland have shown that it isn't a requirement for the next level."

Draft Insider Tony Pauline views Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon as a fourth-round prospect prior to the 2014 season.

That is one round worse than Pauline's projection for Gallon prior to last season, pegging him with a third-round grade. The tall (6'4/220 lbs) receiver missed a large portion of last season following a knee injury that was sustained in October.

Baylor true sophomore WR Robbie Rhodes has been dismissed from the program, according to ESPN's David Smoak.

"Baylor head coach Art Briles confirmed to me Robbie Rhodes is no longer with the football program, "we've parted ways for undisclosed reasons," Smoak tweeted. Unfortunately for the Bears, Rhodes was going to play a big part in college football's No. 1 scoring offense. Rhodes was arrested last month on marijuana possession and tampering with physical evidence. It's been reported that he was kicked off the team because he failed his second drug test, but that has been unconfirmed. Rhodes caught 10 passes for 157 yards as a true freshman last year, and was expected to have a break out year in 2014.

The McLennan County District Attorney’s Office decided not to pursue misdemeanor marijuana possession charges against Baylor true sophomore WR Robbie Rhodes.

Rhodes was arrested last month on marijuana possession and tampering with physical evidence. The player's attorney used Baylor's drug-testing policy to argue that his client should be given leniency, according to the Waco Tribune: "Waco attorney Jonathan Sibley said Baylor has been drug-testing Rhodes for about seven months and he never tested positive for drug use. Sibley said he showed those test results to the DA’s office, including a test administered two days before Rhodes was arrested, and convinced them he was not guilty. Rhodes also tested negative after his arrest, Sibley said." Rhodes was a four-star recruit in 2013 and is expected to break out with Tevin Reese playing on Sundays this year.
Jun 4 - 8:41 PM

The Waco Tribune reports WR Robbie Rhodes was arrested early Friday morning on charges of marijuana possession and tampering with physical evidence.

It was also discovered that Rhodes had a previously unreported citation for drug paraphernalia possession. Bears HC Art Briles said he would address the situation at some point in the future. Rhodes caught 10 passes for 157 yards as a true freshman last year, but he's expected to break out in 2014. He was ranked as the No. 8 wide receiver in the nation coming out of high school in 2013.

Bowling Green S Jerry "BooBoo" Gates ran forties of 4.55 and 4.56 seconds at the Falcons' pro day.

The first-team All-MAC safety in both 2012 and 2013 had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 9-3 broad jump, a 4.16 second short shuttle, a 7.05 second three-cone, and he collected 27 reps on the bench press. Gates (5-foot-11, 203 pounds) is a good kick returner, in addition to his secondary work. NFL.com's Gil Brandt thinks he's a potential late-round selection.
