Injury Updates: 11-25-15

*Notre Dame running back C.J. Prosise is doubtful for Saturday’s game at Stanford.  High ankle sprains don’t heal quickly.

*Quarterback Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma suffered a head injury and was kept out of the second half this past weekend against T.C.U.   He has passed concussion tests and is expected to play
against Oklahoma State in Bedlam.

*Washington State QB Luke Falk has had his head whacked two weeks in a row; he left the field on a cart Saturday.  Athletic director Bill Moos  says concussion policies have been followed and the Cougars are “hopeful” that Falk can play against Washington.
*Moos’s statement is a load of you-know-what.   Falk will not play.  Peyton Bender will take his place.  Do you think Washington State coach Mike Leach will scale things back offensively?  Answer:  He won’t.  Leach always loads the gun and fires it  –  no matter who is or isn’t on the trigger!

*Fibula…hand…back.  Baylor quarterback Jarrett Stidham is, according to coach Art Briles, “highly questionable” for Friday’s game vs. T.C.U.   Chris Johnson, who did all right in relief last week, will get his first start if Stidham can’t go.
*On the other sideline Trevone Boykin’s ankle continues to improve and the guess here is that he’ll be out there.

*Houston coach Tom Herman will play his healthiest quarterback.  Options include:   Greg Ward Jr., who is said to be improving after rolling his ankle November 14th against Memphis; Kyle Postma, who sustained a bone bruise in his knee Saturday against Connecticut; and third-stringer Hunter McCoy.  An MRI on Postma’s knee showed no structural damage.
*Cougar running back Kenneth Farrow is day-to-day with a left ankle sprain.

*T.C.U. wise receiver Josh Doctson and Notre Dame cornerback KeiVarae Russell are done for the season.
