Kentucky's McClinton to miss Kent St. game

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky starting free safety Marcus McClinton is recovering from a sprained ankle and will miss the Wildcats' home game Saturday night against Kent State, coach Rich Brooks said Thursday.

Calvin Harrison, who made one tackle against Eastern Kentucky last Saturday, will now get his first start at free safety, Brooks said in a statement. Playing in 10 games last season, Harrison, a sophomore from Columbia, S.C., made seven tackles.

Junior Braxton Kelley, starting middle linebacker the last two seasons, will start against Kent State, Brooks said. Kelley was sidelined in early August by a high-ankle sprain but returned to practice last week and played briefly against Eastern.

Sophomore Micah Johnson, who is suffering from a bruised shoulder, will also be available, the school said. Johnson started last week and led the team with seven tackles.

Memphis RB Out 2 Weeks
U of M Notebook

University of Memphis starting tailback Joe Doss will miss the next two weeks after results of a Magnetic Resonance Imaging procedure Tuesday showed a mild knee sprain.

Doss, a senior and the team's leading rusher a year ago, was injured early in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 23-21 loss to Ole Miss at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. Doss came up hobbling after gaining 13 yards.

Tiger coach Tommy West said Doss will miss this weekend's game at Arkansas State and next weekend's home game against Division 1-AA Jacksonville State at the Liberty Bowl.

But the results of the MRI were encouraging.

''We got the MRI back and it's a mild sprain, it's a MCL, but it's positive,'' West said. ''I think we have a good chance to get him back by Central Florida (Sept. 22), which I hoped would be best-case scenario, and it looks like that's what it's going to be. Hopefully, the rehab will go as we anticipate, and we'll have him back.''

In Doss's absence, sophomore T.J. Pitts, from West's hometown of Gainesville, Ga., will start.

''T.J. has to step in, and Miguel (Barnes),'' West said. ''They have to be players for us.''

Mills, Williams updates

West said two Tiger defensive linemen -- end Corey Mills and tackle Ryan Williams -- also were examined Tuesday and the results of their tests were similar to Doss'. Mills (shoulder) and Williams (knee) will miss the next two games, but, like Doss, they should be back by the end of the month.

''Corey Mills looks like it's almost the same thing, which is really good news,'' West said. ''We thought there was a chance that one could have been (seriously) torn. He's got a slight tear in the shoulder, the same shoulder he had surgery on, but it's just a matter of getting strength back in the shoulder, and we're shooting for Central Florida there, also.''

Mills underwent surgery to repair his damaged shoulder Nov. 30. Williams missed the second half of last season with a knee injury that didn't require surgery.

After an injury-filled 2006, West said the fact the three players will return soon was encouraging.

''Either one of the last two years they'd all three have been out for the year,'' he said. ''I think it's really positive, and we've got a chance to get 'em back here.''

Danger zones

Tiger quarterback Martin Hankins sported a nasty 'FieldTurf' burn on his right arm Monday, the result of chasing Ole Miss defensive back Dustin Mouzon in vain down the sideline during Mouzon's 99-yard touchdown return.

Hankins said after he made a desperate attempt to catch Mouzon and strip him of the football, he fell to the ground and his arm slid across the heavily painted sideline area of Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium's Rex Dockery Field.

''It's not necessarily the turf (that causes the burn), it's the paint,'' Hankins said. ''When they paint it and try to make it look all pretty, it hardens that turf. It makes it stiff. And when you slide across it ...''

Hankins said it wasn't the first time he'd had an ugly burn from the painted turf. He said last season in a home game against Tulsa, he endured something worse.

''Last year against Tulsa I did a big slide on the (UofM logo at midfield),'' he said. ''I caught a staph infection from that. I woke up that morning and I couldn't walk. It took me five minutes to walk around.

''I went in and said 'Doc, you've got to look at this.' He said you've got to start taking these antibiotics right now. If I hadn't done that, I would have been out of the next game (at Marshall).''

Re: College Football - Week 1

Gamecocks defensive end ruled ineligible
September 7, 2007

Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina defensive end Jordin Lindsay had an NCAA eligibility appeal turned down, meaning he won't be able to play this season.

Athletic department Steve Fink said Friday that Lindsey, a senior, would remain on scholarship with the team and would take this as a redshirt season.

Lindsey, a 6-foot-3, 256-pound senior, started 15 of 25 games the last two years. He was the starter for South Carolina's final five games, which included close losses to Arkansas (26-20) and Florida (17-16), and victories over Middle Tennessee, Clemson and Houston in the Liberty Bowl.

Lindsey recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass in the bowl game, a 44-36 win over Houston last December.

Lindsey did not play in South Carolina's season-opening 28-14 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette while awaiting a final decision on his academic status.

Lindsey's twin brother, linebacker Dustin, was placed back on scholarship this season. He had been declared academically ineligible after the 2005 season, reapplied for admission and worked with the scout team last fall.

Freshman defensive lineman Travian Robertson started at defensive end a week ago.
