Brewer out for Saturday’s game; Faulkner leaves team

Indiana senior right tackle James Brewer will miss Saturday’s game with an ankle injury, Indiana coach Bill Lynch said Wednesday. Junior Justin Pagan will move out to right tackle and sophomore Marc Damisch will play at right guard. Pagan started all last season at left guard and has started the last two games at right guard. He has played tackle in practice, but not in a game since his freshman year.

“That’s part of it,” Lynch said. “James can’t play so just like we do in the middle of the game, next guy’s up. We’ll be in good shape. That’s why, one of the things we really really worked hard on during camp, we spent a lot of time where our 2’s got, in some cases, more work than our 1’s, making sure everybody was prepared, because you know once you get to the season something’s going to happen. I’ve got a lot of confidence in the guys. Justin’s played every position on the offensive line but center in his career, so we’re in good shape.”

In addition, fifth-year senior Cody Faulkner has moved on from the program to focus on getting his degree, an Indiana spokesman said. Faulkner, who is going to graduate in December, fell off the two-deep earlier this year, and hasn’t seen much playing time.

  1. Another block of limestone bites the dust. Without of course knowing if there’s more to the story, it seems really odd to leave the team now. He’s a 5th-year senior, meaning he’s gone thru 5 years of practices, two-a-days, and getting up at 5am for conditioning…a ton of work to ultimately quit in October of your senior year. Seems like he could grind out these last 2 months just b/c of the last 5 years. But like I said, maybe there’s more to the story. (As an aside, I’ll never forget the make-believe holding call on him in the endzone against Sparty two seasons ago that cost IU a 99-yard TD pass, Chappell to Turner.)

    Also, Dustin, any idea how serious Brewer’s injury is, and was he hurt during the Michigan game? Sure hope he isn’t out long.
