Tuesday football injury updates

As Indiana prepares for one of its most important football games of the past decade or so, the Hoosiers are getting closer to full strength.

Defensive tackle Joe Kremer (knee) and cornerback Leslie Majors (foot injury) are both expected to play after missing last Saturday’s game, IU coach Bill Lynch said, and center Ben Wyss, who has a broken foot, has some chance of playing.

In practice this week, Indiana will use the same revamped offensive line that play against Ball State – with senior John Sandberg moving over to center, rather than his usual spot at right guard, with senior Charlie Emerson at right guard rather than right tackle, and with redshirt freshman Mike Stark at right tackle.

Lynch said the possible availability of Wyss would give the Hoosiers depth at center or the option to return him to his starting spot if needed. Of Wyss perhaps playing on a broken foot, Lynch said “he’s a tough guy.”

Running back Demetrius McCray, who has missed the last seven games with a foot injury, is not expected to play against Northwestern. McCray, a sophomore, likely will not be eligible for a redshirt season, Lynch said, because he already took one as a true freshman.

  1. Doug,

    What is the foot injury with McCray? He seems to get around just fine walking and jogging up and down the sidelines. Can you find out more?

    He did redshirt his freshman year, do football players not qualify for a medical redshirt?
