Injury update - 9/10/2018

Recommended Posts

At his weekly press conference, Tom Herman updated the media on the status of several players that suffered injuries through the first two games of the season.

Keaontay Ingram - RB

Running back Keaontay Ingram injured his knee on Saturday evening against Tulsa. After an MRI, Ingram was shown NOT to have a torn MCL, but rather a strained MCL and a deep bone bruise.  He is doubtful for the USC game.

Brandon Jones - Safety

Jones has been nursing a high ankle sprain that he picked up in the Maryland game.  Herman says he will practice a little bit starting Tuesday.

Davante Davis - DB

Davis had a neck sprain (suffered in the loss to Maryland) but “should be back,” for USC according to Herman.

DeMarvion Overshown

Will be out a couple of more weeks with the knee injury suffered in preseason scrimmage.

Ayodele Adeoye - LB

Good news on Adeoye, as he will begin practicing on Tuesday.  Adeoye also sustained a knee injury, like Overshown, in mid-August and has been on the road to recovery.

Kris Boyd - DB

Boyd played against Tulsa but woke up the next day with some neck pain and did not practice on Sunday, according to Herman.  Boyd should resume practice on Tuesday.  I assume he will play against USC on Saturday.

John Burt - WR

Burt is still out and will not play against USC.

Zach Shackleford - Center

Will remain out a couple of more weeks with his foot injury and is expected to start wearing a boot on Wednesday of this week.

Patrick Hudson - OG

After being rushed to the hospital last week with a heat-related illness and full body cramp, Patrick Hudson appears to be doing better.   He is no longer taking an IV and his levels are improving day-by-day.

Seeing Ingram in person Saturday, he has a chance to be very very good. Hate to hear that for him and the Horns. He has a burst, makes GREAT cuts, and has excellent vision. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

Reminded me of Jamal Charles, size and cutting ability.  While quick, not the blazing track speed of Jamal.  He looks good, hopefully heals quickly.

Really hoping Davis, Jones and Boyd are  all able to go against USC.  Need the DBs back there for coverage so the front 7 can get some pressure.  If Davis cant go then they should play Cook instead of Boyce.  Cook would be good in press coverage while Boyce needs a safety over the top for help.
