De'Anthony Thomas: RB, Oregon
De'Anthony Thomas injured his right ankle on the opening kickoff of Oregon's 55-16 rainy win over Cal Saturday night and did not return. He told Rob Moseley of GoDucks.com that he rolled his ankle on the wet surface in Eugene.
Now, it doesn't appear as though Oregon's speedster will be in action this week. Andrew Grief of The Oregonian quoted UO running backs coach Gary Campbell saying that, though the goal is for Thomas to play this week, that isn't going to happen.
Todd Gurley: RB, Georgia
Georgia's Todd Gurley also suffered an ankle injury Saturday. The ugly-looking ankle turn occurred just before the second half, and the UGA back did not return against LSU.
Seth Emerson of the The Macon Telegraph tweeted that the sophomore is day-to-day with a sprained ankle, according to head coach Mark Richt. Georgia will take on Tennessee this week.
Marqise Lee: WR, USC
As if the situation at USC wasn't bad enough with the firing of Lane Kiffin, the Trojans also lost star receiver Marqise Lee to a knee injury Saturday night.
Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News reported that Lee has a "severely sprained knee" but hopes to return by Oct. 10 when USC takes on Arizona. The Trojans have a much-needed bye in Week 6.
Connor Shaw: QB, South Carolina
South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw went down with a shoulder sprain in the first quarter against UCF, not to return. Josh Kendall of The State reported that he and running back Brandon Wilds are expected to miss 2-3 weeks.
The Gamecocks still have the SEC's leading rusher, Mike Davis, at running back and an experienced back up under center in Dylan Thompson. They will take on Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee in the next three weeks.
