Indiana redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey completed 22-of-34 passes for 158 yards in Saturday's 17-9 loss to Michigan State.

Ramsey entered action on Saturday having thrown at least one touchdown pass in four consecutive contests. No such luck against the Spartans on Saturday. Outside of a win over FCS Charleston Southern on October 7, the 6-foot-2, 209-pound redshirt freshman has failed to surpass 200 yards passing in a game this season. Ramsey will probably continue to see starting work over Richard Lagow as the team continues his development, but we were more impressed with the Hoosiers' offense when Lagow was helming the ship.

Indiana senior TE Ian Thomas is considered day-to-day after getting "banged" up in the overtime loss to Michigan.

Thomas (6'5/250) should be good to go against Michigan State, but it's worth monitoring after he suffered some bumps and bruises in the near upset of the Wolverines. Thomas has a chance to be one of the first tight ends to come off the board this spring.
Oct 16 - 7:04 PM

Indiana junior WR Donavan Hale (undisclosed) is unlikely to return on Saturday against Michigan State.

Hale (6'4/215) hasn't been able to play in the Hoosiers last three games, and it sounds like this will be another miss for the former quarterback-turned-wide receiver.

NFL Draft Scout's Dane Brugler views Indiana's Ian Thomas as a top-five senior TE.

Brugler highlighted Thomas' outstanding seal block against Michigan's Rashan Gary that opened up a huge lane and a long run. Thomas offers "athletic routes" and is a "physical blocker," per Brugler. Thomas has caught 17 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns this season.
Oct 16 - 11:11 AM

Indiana redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey completed 20-of-41 passes for 178 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Saturday's 27-20 overtime loss to Michigan.

Ramsey posted a largely uneventful game, but did manage to toss an eight-yard touchdown pass in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter to help keep Indiana in the game. They would tie the game up at 20-20 with a field goal at the gun to push the contest past regulation before falling after they were unable to answer Karan Higdon's scoring run in the first overtime. Ramsey will likely to continue to see starting work over Richard Lagow moving forward with Indiana looking to see what they have in the redshirt freshman.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that NFL area scouts are stamping Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs with Day 2 grades.

In other words, a Rounds 2-3 value. "They like his size, pass-catching skill and ability to win out for the contest throw," Pauline wrote. Cobbs isn't a perfect prospect, however. Pauline mentions speed, route-running ability and off-field issues as three concerns. Cobbs had a confrontation with police this past July at a concert. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder caught 60 passes for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns in 2015 before missing all but one game last year due to an ankle injury.
Oct 13 - 1:19 PM

Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs caught 10 passes for 98 yards in a 27-0 victory over Charleston Southern on Saturday.

Cobbs didn't get into the end zone on Saturday, but he still was able to make big plays through the air, which isn't a surprise. Expect him to get plenty of targets going forward from new starter Peyton Ramsey at quarterback, and to be a focal point of the offense next week against Michigan.
Oct 7 - 6:59 PM

Indiana freshman WR Taysir Mack caught seven passes for 111 yards with two scores in a 27-0 route of Charleston Southern on Saturday.

Mack (6'2/200) came into the game with a total of two catches for 18 yards, so you can definitely call this a breakout game for the freshman from Brooklyn. Both scores came in the first half, including a 45-yarder just before halftime to give the Hoosiers a 24-0 lead. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship between he and redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey.
Oct 7 - 6:55 PM

Indiana redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey completed 32-for-41 passes for 341 yards and two scores with an interception in a 27-0 shellacking of Charleston Southern on Saturday.

Both of Ramsey's (6'2/210) touchdown passes were to Taysir Mack, but he also found Simmie Cobbs Jr. ten times, and outside of one bad pick, he was efficient and accurate. The only question is if he can do it against the (much) better defenses he'll face going forward. That question will get answered rather quickly, as the Hoosiers have a date with Michigan next week.
Oct 7 - 6:51 PM

Indiana junior RB Mike Jajette (hamstring) is expected to return to the field on Saturday against Charleston Southern.

Majette (5'11/209) has missed the last two weeks because of the hamstring issue. Freshman tailback Morgan Ellison has performed admirably in his absence, so he and Majette could form a quality tandem for the rest of the 2017 campaign. Don't be surprised if Ellison gets the bulk of the carries this week, however, as Charleston Southern shouldn't give Indiana any trouble.
Oct 5 - 8:09 PM

Indiana redshirt junior WR J-Shun Harris (undisclosed) is probable for Saturday's game against Charleston Southern.

Harris (5'8/170) left Saturday's tilt against Penn State in the first quarter. He tore his ACL in both 2015 and 2016, but it appears he'll be ready to go for the Hoosiers as the slot-receiver.
Oct 2 - 4:45 PM

Indiana redshirt freshman QB Peyton Ramsey will take over as the starting quarterback for the Hoosiers, according to HC Tom Allen.

"He's going to be our starting quarterback," Allen said. Ramsey (6'2/210) takes over for Richard Lagow, who has struggled with accuracy and decision-making in the first five weeks for the Hoosiers. Ramsey has seen time in all four games for Indiana, completing 60 percent of his passes with a 4/1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. His first start will come against Charleston Southern this Saturday.
Oct 2 - 1:21 PM

Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs caught five passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 45-14 loss to Penn State.

Cobbs scored from 18 yards out in the closing seconds of the first half to draw Indiana to within 28-14, but the Hoosiers had no offensive gas left in the tank for the second half. While the redshirt junior has caught touchdown passes in three of four games this season, he has not surpassed 65 yards receiving since the opener against Ohio State.
Sep 30 - 7:20 PM

Indiana redshirt junior WR J-Shun Harris (undisclosed) left for the locker room in the first quarter of Saturday's game against Penn State.

No word as of yet as to what Harris is dealing with on the health front. Given that he tore his ACL in both 2015 and 2016, this is one worth monitoring. We'll pass along an update when available.
Sep 30 - 4:25 PM

Indiana junior RB Mike Majette (undisclosed) is not dressed in advance of Saturday's game against Penn State.

Majette (5'11/209) is in line to miss his second consecutive contest due to an undisclosed injury return. Count it as a depth loss -- true freshman Morgan Ellison is expected to see the bulk of carries against the Nittany Lions.
