  The playing status of Arkansas quarterback KJ Jefferson for Saturday's 11 a.m. game at No. 23 Mississippi State will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis through the course of the week, Coach Sam Pittman said Monday. On Saturday, Jefferson hit his helmet on the field during a fourth-quarter sack, missed one play, threw an incomplete pass on the next play, then did not return for the last 6:55 of the Razorbacks' 49-26 loss to No. 2 Alabama. Cade Fortin, a senior transfer from South Florida, finished Arkansas' final two drives. Pittman did not confirm Jefferson was in the team's concussion protocols at his weekly news conference Monday, but his comments suggest that is the case. "He has some mild symptoms," Pittman said. "Those are things that our doctors look at. Each kid is a little bit different with how they react. "We've had guys back within three-four days. We've had guys out for 27 days. He's kind of a wait-and-see to be honest with you." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Kansas football coach Lance Leipold said Tuesday that running back Daniel Hishaw Jr. will be out for "an extended period of time" because of an undisclosed injury suffered during KU's 14-11 win over Iowa State last weekend. Hishaw left last Saturday's game on a cart with what appeared to be a lower body injury and he was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for further examination. Leipold said Tuesday that he made it to the hospital last Saturday night to visit with the KU running back just before he was discharged. "He was doing a lot better than I could've expected," Leipold said, adding that the redshirt sophomore back was in "decent spirits." The speculation on message boards and social media was that Hishaw injured his hip. The third-year sophomore missed all of last season with what he described in August as a "rare" hip injury that happened during preseason camp in 2021.

However, Leipold said the specifics of Hishaw's injury and a timetable for how long he will be out were not yet available and that he would "let you know more as we move along." The 5-foot-10, 210-pound redshirt sophomore from Moore, Oklahoma, was enjoying a breakout season before the injury. After missing all of last season, he appeared in all five of KU's games so far and was tied for the team lead in rushing touchdowns, with five, and also averaging six yards per carry on 44 attempts. His powerful running style and ability to impact the game as a receiver gave the Jayhawks an additional weapon to utilize in their offense which has ranked among the most explosive in all of college football so far this season. "I think his running style and physicality is what separated him," Leipold said Tuesday. - Lawrence Journal World

  After a right-leg injury sustained in Georgia Tech's win at Pittsburgh on Saturday night, safety Jaylon King likely is out for the season, according to a person familiar with the situation. Asked about the matter Tuesday, interim coach Brent Key said that King had surgery and will miss the Yellow Jackets' home game against Duke on Saturday (4 p.m., Bally Sports South). "But our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family moving forward," Key said. "We have ample people at that position that we know are ready to step up and make plays, as they did on Saturday." A junior, King had been a steady presence in the Jackets secondary in his first season as a starter.

In five games, he had 32 tackles (most among defensive backs), one interception and a forced fumble. He held an important role in making pre-snap reads and communicating adjustments to the rest of the secondary. In the depth chart released Tuesday, freshman Clayton Powell-Lee was listed as the starter at free safety, backed up by Khari Gee. Powell-Lee, the son of former Tech receiver Gary Lee, has been among the team's more impressive freshmen thus far, drawing coaches' attention with his ability to quickly learn the defense. - Atlanta Journal Constitution

  UNM sophomore standout tight end Trace Bruckler is out for the season after dislocating his right shoulder against LSU on Sept. 24. Bruckler missed UNM's game against UNLV and will have surgery this week, Gonzales said. Bruckler, who led the Lobos with three touchdown receptions last year, tore his left labrum in March when New Mexico ended its spring session, Gonzales said. Bruckler built up enough strength that he was able to forgo surgery and play the first four games, Gonzales said. But Bruckler was not at his best because of the left shoulder pain. He'll have surgery on his left shoulder this week and about a month later will have surgery on his right shoulder, Gonzales said. - Albuquerque Journal

  Head coach Mack Brown announced yesterday during his press conference that the UNC football program will be without Sebastian Cheeks for the remainder of the season due to an upper-body injury, more specifically a shoulder injury. Cheeks was not in uniform for the team's victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday afternoon. Prior to suffering the injury, the Skokie, Illinois native played in 3 games, registering three total tackles.

This is a rather big blow to the Tar Heels, as not only does it impact their linebacker depth, but also hurts them on special teams. The freshman was making a push to earn more time on the field with the defensive unit, but this injury, unfortunately, sidelined him before that could happen. For Cheeks, he'll still have the ability to use a redshirt season, given that he did not play in four or more contests. The hope is that he'll return healthy next season and will be ready to become a steady presence for the UNC football program's defense. - Keeping It Heel.com

  John Rhys Plumlee threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns, both coming in the second half to Ryan O'Keefe, and UCF scored 31 unanswered points to beat SMU 41-19 on Wednesday night in a game postponed because of tropical weather. UCF trailed 13-10 at halftime before scoring four touchdowns in the second half. O'Keefe made a diving catch in the end zone on a 26-yard throw to extend UCF's lead to 24-13 with 3:07 left in the third quarter. O'Keefe added a 58-yard touchdown early in the fourth on a shuffle-pass jet sweep. O'Keefe finished with six catches for 117 yards and two scores, and Javon Baker added 138 yards receiving for UCF (4-1, 1-0 American Athletic Conference). Isaiah Bowser had three short touchdown runs.

The UCF defense made three keys plays. Jason Johnson recovered a fumble on SMU's first possession of the game, Divaad Wilson made an interception to end the first half and Tre'mon Morris-Brash sacked Tanner Mordecai in the end zone for a safety in the fourth quarter. Mordecai was 28 of 45 for 295 yards with one interception for SMU (2-3, 0-1). Rashee Rice, who entered leading the nation in receiving yards per game at 141.2, had 12 catches for 122 yards. The game was rescheduled twice due to Hurricane Ian. It was initially scheduled to be played Saturday at UCF's on-campus stadium before shifting to Sunday. - UCF/AP College Football

  Louisville coach Scott Satterfield says quarterback Malik Cunningham's status is being evaluated daily for concussion-like symptoms after he was injured Saturday's loss at Boston College. The fifth-year senior ran for three touchdowns and threw for another before finishing the game, a 34-33 defeat, on the sideline. He was removed for one play in the third quarter after taking a hit to the head from BC defensive back Jaylen Blackwell, who was penalized for targeting. Cunningham played two more series before being replaced by Brock Domann.

Satterfield said Tuesday that Cunningham told team doctors that he "felt a little different" after taking another hit later and was pulled from the game. "His status now is day to day and it'll be determined by our doctors what they allow him to do," Satterfield said during his weekly news conference, which came ahead of Saturday's ACC game at Virginia. "If he's able to go, then obviously he'll go. But if they say he's not ready, then he won't go." Cunningham was injured two days after Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a concussion, laying on the turf with his hands and fingers frozen upward after being slammed backward to the turf in a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Tagovailoa had experienced concussion-like symptoms after a hit four days earlier against the Buffalo Bills but was cleared to return, raising questions about the NFL's handling of such injuries. - AP College Football

  Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said starting defensive tackle Bryan Bresee won't play at Boston College on Saturday night. Swinney said Tuesday that Bresee was continuing to recover from a kidney infection diagnosed last week and would be out for the fifth-ranked Tigers (5-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Bresee underwent tests and medical monitoring and received positive news about his condition, Swinney said. The coach said the 6-foot-5, 305-pound junior will use this week to regain his football conditioning. It's the second straight game and third this season that Bresee, the ACC's defensive rookie of the year in 2020, will miss. He was out against Louisiana Tech, with his family after the death of his 15-year-old sister. Bresee didn't play last week in a win over North Carolina State after his infection was diagnosed. - AP College Football

  West Virginia running back CJ Donaldson is in concussion protocol and will miss next week's home game with Baylor after he was injured in a loss to Texas, coach Neal Brown said Tuesday. Donaldson remained on the ground after he was tackled on a short gain in the third quarter of Saturday's 38-20 loss to the Longhorns. His helmet and shoulder pads were removed and he was carted off the field on a stretcher. After the game he was cleared to travel home with the team. "He's recovering," Brown said. "There is a strict return-to-play (policy) that we have to follow here and I'm zero involved in it. All I do is ask the question. They don't even start the return-to-play until they're symptom free." Donaldson, a 240-pound freshman, leads the Mountaineers with 389 rushing yards and six touchdowns, with an average of 6.9 yards per carry. West Virginia (2-3, 0-2 Big 12 Conference) is idle this week and hosts Baylor (3-2, 1-1) next Thursday, Oct. 13. - AP College Football

  10/04/22 - DE Eku LeotaSr/2023, Auburn + More +

  Auburn will be without one of its top pass-rushers for the remainder of the year. Eku Leota was ruled out for the rest of the season after sustaining a pec injury during Auburn's loss to LSU last weekend, coach Bryan Harsin confirmed Monday. Leota will undergo surgery Tuesday. "Eku's a big loss, and this has nothing to do with anybody behind him; it's just he's an emotional leader, he's one of the smartest football players we have," Harsin said. "I mean, he is a guy that you want on your team - how he prepares, all the things he does, the respect he has of his team." Leota sustained the injury late in the first quarter of Auburn's 21-17 loss at Jordan-Hare Stadium and did not return to the field.

Upon exiting the game, he retreated to the locker room with team trainers, and when he emerged from the tunnel early in the second quarter, he was in street clothes and had his right arm in a sling. He spent the remainder of the game sitting on the training table on Auburn's sideline. The 6-foot-4, 257-pound senior has been Auburn's second-most productive pass rusher this season. He's tied with Colby Wooden for second on the team in sacks, with two, to go along with 17 total tackles, five for a loss and three quarterback hurries. A former transfer from Northwestern, Leota is in his second season on the Plains. He was one of the team's most productive edge rushers last season, when he finished with 23 total tackles, but 10 for a loss and seven sacks, to go along with eight quarterback hurries and a forced fumble. - Birmingham News

  Tennessee football coach Josh Heupel confirmed wide receiver Cedric Tillman had surgery on his injured ankle, but did not rule him out for the LSU game. "Cedric did have surgery. It just gave him the opportunity to speed up the recovery process," Heupel said Monday at his weekly press conference. "We'll see where he's at . He was limited but moving around a little bit today. We'll continue to see how it unfolds this week and see where we're at." Last week, Heupel said he was "hopeful" that Tillman would "be available when we go down there" to LSU. On Monday, Heupel put conditions on that availability. "(Tillman) has got to be a functional player and play at the level that we expect him to and what he wants to play at too," Heupel said. Tillman suffered the injury in a win over Akron in Week 3. Without him, the Vols got career-best performances from Bru McCoy and Ramel Keyton in a 38-33 win over Florida. McCoy had 102 yards receiving and one TD. Keyton had 69 yards receiving, including a 43-yard catch in a 99-yard touchdown drive that turned the game. - Knoxville News Sentinel
