  • Mississippi State QB Conner out three weeks with knee injury

    JACKSON, Miss. -- Mississippi State quarterback Omarr Conner will miss at least three weeks after spraining a ligament in his right knee in a 51-0 loss to LSU on Saturday.

    Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom said Monday that tests showed Conner sprained his medial collateral ligament and won't return before the Bulldogs' home game against No. 16 Florida on Oct. 23.

    "That's the earliest we can get him back," Croom said.

    With Conner out, junior Kyle York will start Saturday against Vanderbilt. Because York's shoulder is not 100 percent after offseason surgery, freshman Mike Henig will also play.

    Conner, who played receiver last season for the Bulldogs (1-3, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) is 50-of-89 for 509 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions this season. York is 13-of-27 for 132 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in three appearances.

    PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State quarterback Josh Swogger broke a bone in his right foot, ending his sophomore season.

    The injury will require surgery, Washington State athletic department spokesman Rod Commons said Monday.

    Swogger's backup is freshman Alex Brink, who played in two games this season, completing 13-of-25 pass attempts for 278 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

    Freshman Gary Rogers, who hoped to redshirt this season, will be Brink's backup.

    Swogger already was playing with a partially torn ligament in his right knee and a sore ankle.

    He completed 91 of 193 pass attempts for 1,283 yards, with 13 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. He ranks seventh in the Pac-10 in passing, averaging 208.7 yards per game.

    Concussion could knock Penn State's Mills out of game

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State starting quarterback Zack Mills may miss Saturday's game against Ohio State because of the lingering effects of a concussion.

    Mills' concussion was revealed Tuesday, three days after Penn State's 6-4 loss to Iowa.

    Coach Joe Paterno didn't blame the injury for the team's woeful performance on offense against the Hawkeyes. The Nittany Lions managed their lowest offensive output in three years, including the fewest number of first downs in Paterno's 39-year tenure.

    The concussion apparently occurred in the first half, but Mills remained in the game until the third quarter.

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska tight end Matt Herian will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his broken left leg.

    Herian, the Cornhuskers' leading receiver, was injured in the second quarter of Saturday's 24-3 victory over Missouri. He had surgery Saturday night to insert a rod in his leg.

    The junior has 24 catches for 308 yards.

    Senior Dusty Keiser and redshirt freshman J.B. Phillips are now the Cornhuskers' top two tight ends.

    Injured hip might keep Purdue QB Orton out of Iowa game

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Purdue quarterback Kyle Orton is questionable for Saturday's game against Iowa with an injured left hip.

    Orton was injured in last week's 13-10 loss at Northwestern. He was benched for backup Brandon Kirsch in the third quarter, partly because he was injured and partly because he was ineffective.

    Purdue coach Joe Tiller said Tuesday he is in no hurry to announce a starter for Saturday.

    "We could hold it as long as game time," Tiller said. "We will delay the decision as long as possible."

    Orton said he was feeling much better Tuesday than he was against Northwestern, and he thought he would be ready to go for the game in his home state.

    "You look at the progress I've made from Saturday until now, it's a lot better," he said. "If I can play and help the team, then I'm going to play through some pain. But I'm not going to be out there and hurting the team this week."

    After spearheading Purdue's best start since 1945, the one-time Heisman hopeful's play has fallen off. Orton was just 15-for-33 for 143 yards, a touchdown and an interception last week against Northwestern, Purdue's third straight loss.

    Orton was the prime reason the Boilermakers started the season 5-0, completing nearly 70 percent of his passes for 1,642 yards, 18 touchdowns and two interceptions.

    Over the past three games -- all Purdue defeats -- he has completed just 50 percent of his passes for 591 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

    "It's been three rough weeks," Orton said. "It seems like everything's kind of falling apart a little bit."

    BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU center Ben Wilkerson will miss the remainder of the 2004 season with a ruptured tendon in his left knee.

    Wilkerson was injured in the fourth quarter of LSU's 24-7 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday. He was expected to have surgery to repair the patella tendon on Monday. Wilkerson, a senior, has started 41 games at LSU and is one of the top centers in the country.

    Head coach Nick Saban also said Sunday that freshman wide receiver Xavier Carter will be sidelined at least four weeks with a broken collar bone.

    Carter has caught five passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns.
