Andrew Johnson has been upgraded to "doubtful" this week.
Last week, he appeared to be in serious trouble. An ambulance took drove onto the field and took him away on a stretcher.
Diagnosed with dual shoulder stingers, Johnson feasibly could take some of the load off Dennis Kennedy. From what I hear, he has already been cleared to play. It's just a question of whether the coaches feel it's worth the risk to use him.
One source is giving me a thumbs down on the likelihood of DeVoe Torrence playing this season. Athletically, he's ready to go. Playing on the scout team, Torrence is plowing through the Zips defense. However, he needs to learn the offense a little better. Also, it's five games into the season and the Zips still have decent running backs who are healthy.
The following players are "out" against Kent State: Alex Allen, Ryan Bain, Sean Fobbs, Evan Laube, Paul Simkovich, Cowles Stewart and Brandon Williams.
