BODY COUNT, BODY COUNT: WEEK TWELVE

New, 17 comments

The important injuries for week twelve of the college football season. Most are factual.

Body Count's in the house.

Mike Hart and Chad Henne both limp into the Ohio State game. Hart is playing through a high ankle sprain and will likely play. Henne has a leg injury and also suffers from being Chad Henne, and will likely play in between ill-explained appearances by Ryan Mallett.

On tOSU's side, Chris "Beanie" Wells is struggling through ankle and wrist injuries. He'll play.

Percy Harvin was hospitalized earlier this week for a sinus infection and will miss the Florida Atlantic game this weekend, the second he's missed due to illness. A high-performance machine like him is bound to spend some time in the shop, man.

Kentucky's Rafael Little will play against Georgia this weekend after making "significant progress" from a back injury.

Colt Brennan is officially "probable" for tonight's game against Nevada, which starts at 11:00 p.m., when we will be officially "hammered to bejeezus" at a birthday party.

Cornerback Vontae Davis is also feeling drunk on Concussionade, and is questionable for Illinois' game against Northwestern.

Running back Tashard Choice's knee is also probable for Georgia Tech due to a knee injury for the game against the suddenly pulse-having North Carolina Tar Heels. When asked what the odds are of Choice playing, Coach Chan Gailey answered, "Oh, about 7 to 5."

Guard Will Arnold and LB Daryl Beckwith are doubtful and questionable for the LSU Tigers' game against Ole Miss this weekend, making them either injured or admirably skeptical of all things around them.

Maryland RB Keon Lattimore is questionable with a hamstring injury. When reached for comment, coach Ralph Friedgen said "Mmmm, ham. String."

Texas Tech wide receivers Todd Walker, Lyle Leong, and L.A. Reed are all questionable for the Red Raiders' game against the Oklahoma Sooners, taking Texas Tech's total wideout corps down to a mere 16 healthy receivers.

Oklahoma will be missing Auston English, who would find playing with a metal rod in his broken foot difficult, so they're not gonna let him play. DT Steven Coleman, though, will play despite a strained abdominal muscle.

Minnesota's entire secondary is out due to the effects of a three-month long collective seizure.

Virginia Tech's caught injury fever as WR Eddie Royal, QB Sean Glennon, LB Vince Hall, and RB Branden Ore are all dinged for their home game against the 'Canes. Ore's ankle injury is the most serious of the collection.

Miami's offense is out with circulatory problems leading to an inability to score or maintain drive.
