Nate Boudreau’s status for Saturday uncertain #iufb

Indiana backup quarterback Nate Boudreau’s status for Saturday’s game against Penn State remains unclear after the redshirt sophomore suffered a shoulder sprain last week at Michigan.

IU coach Kevin Wilson said Boudreau was able to get his throwing motion back during Tuesday’s practice, but added that he’s still limited.

The Hoosiers want to see how much velocity Boudreau can add to his throws before making him available for Saturday.

“He’s able to do some plays and see some things, but we’re not overdoing it from a strength deal,” Wilson said. “We’ll see how it goes between now and Saturday.”

Boudreau relieved starter Zander Diamont in the second quarter of IU’s 34-10 loss to the Wolverines, lasting two snaps before injuring his right throwing shoulder on a third-down sack. If he is unable to play, true freshman Danny Cameron, the son of former IU coach and player Cam, will move into Indiana’s backup slot against the Nittany Lions.

Boudreau, a walk-on, is Indiana’s third quarterback to fall due to injury this season. He has appeared in two games this season, attempting only a single pass.

  1. Heal soon and stay safe, Nate…Go Hoosiers!

    Don’t know what the answer is here but I am certainly not convinced that we can provide any kind of effective competition for our FB opponents left on our schedule. I am 200% behind our program and I really do think we’ve gotten better under Coach Wilson. I respect and appreciate the effort of the guys and coaches.

    But, at some point I have to think that the B1G front office is going to take a hard look at our program and evaluate what we bring to the conference in FB versus other schools that might want to join. We can’t come close to filling our stadium, have to think that paraphernalia sales are pretty minimal and the game day experience for fans in Bloomington is pretty lame compared with our competitors. I question what we bring to the table.

  2. Wow thats crazy.

    I will say it again, but put rotate 2 backs or all 3 backs with no qb and run the triple option. At this point its the best bet to win games.

    It would be one thing if the team was still trying to pass and work on Diamonts throws and developing chemistry with receivers but they are not. So why not just cater to the teams strengths, it cant get much worse……right?

  3. Does it matter whether or not Boudreau is able to suit up? The Mighty Hoosiers will still likely get smoked, will be lucky to win one more game this year, and will live down to their reputation as a patsy. Wilson must go.
