The Year Of Living Dangerously: Injuries Mounting Across The SEC

year-of-living-dangerously-posterVinnie Sunseri at Alabama.  Evan Engram at Ole Miss.  Josh Holsey at Auburn.

Three more SEC players done for the year with season-ending surgeries.  When it comes to injuries, the SEC seems to be experiencing a record number of broken bones and busted knees.  It’s possible, of course, that everyone’s current focus on the dangers of football — concussion lawsuits, new NFL and college rules designed to protect players, news stories — has caused us to pay more attention to the number of injury bug bites this year.  It’s also possible that adding two new teams and two new injury lists to the SEC mix has influenced our views.  But when you look at the list below — of players out for the year or currently out for extended periods — and it’s hard not to call 2013 the year of living dangerously in the Southeastern Conference.

(For the record, we are guaranteed to be missing a name or two on this list.  Some coaches simply don’t provide good injury information.  If think you know of someone on your favorite team who is done for the season or will be out for an extended period of three or more weeks, feel free to make a note of it in our comment area.)

 

Alabama Long-Term Injuries (4)

Dakota Ball (DL), Nick Perry (DB), Vinnie Sunseri (DB), Dalvin Thompson (DL)

 

Arkansas Long-Term Injuries (3)

Will Hines (DB), Robert Thomas (DT), Demetrius Wilson (WR)

 

Auburn Long-Term Injuries (4)

Jaylon Denson (WR), Justin Garrett (LB), Josh Holsey (DB), Jeffrey Whitaker (DT),

 

Florida Long-Term Injuries (9)

Andre Debose (WR), Jeff Driskel (QB), Dominique Easley (DL), Chaz Green (OL), Matt Jones (RB), Matt Rolin (LB), Jordan Sheritt (DL), Colin Thompson (TE), Nick Washington (DB)

 

Georgia Long-Term Injuries (7)

Michael Bennett (WR), Todd Gurley (RB), Keith Marshall (RB), Malcolm Mitchell (WR), Justin Scott-Wesley (WR), Tramel Terry (WR), Reggie Wilkerson (DB)

 

Kentucky Long-Term Injuries (2)

Four SEC Footballers Named To “The Freak List”

Somehow missed this one earlier in the week, but Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com has compiled what he calls his “Freak List,” the 10 craziest athletes in college football.  And by crazy, he means “the top workout warriors or players who amaze their teammates and coaches whith what they can do in the weight room, on the track or in some other ‘wow” aspect of athleticism.

You can get the full explainers right here.  We’ll just tell you that four SEC players made this year’s list with three other just missing the cut.  And those super-skilled athletes are…

 

2.  Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina

3.  Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee

6.  Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas

8.  Jay Prosch, FB, Auburn (transfer from Northwestern)

 

Just missing the list were:

 

Eric Reid, DB, LSU

Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama

Lerentee McCray, LB, Florida

 

(You can tell its May when people start posting all their different lists.  It’s not football or basketball season… it’s list season.)

UT’s Jackson Back, But He’s Still Got Work To Do

Tennessee safety Janzen Jackson is back in Knoxville and enrolled in school.  The star DB has had a series of issues since arriving at UT as part of Lane Kiffin’s first (and only full) signing class in 2009).  First there was a late-night arrest in connection with an attempted robbery at a convenience store.  Charges against Jackson were dropped.  There were team rules violations involving marijuana.  And twice Jackson has left school — including during the spring semester — only to be welcomed back.

But he’s not all the way back yet, according to Derek Dooley.

“He’s only been here, how long, three days now,” UT’s coach told The Knoxville News Sentinel yesterday.  “So it’s a little premature to say he’s back.  He’s got a long way to go physically, he’s still got a lot of things to do to stay a part of the team.  Only time will tell if he’s going to be our safety this year.  I think it’s a good positive step forward, but we’re certainly not done.”

And if you think that sounds a lot like what Steve Spurrier said about Stephen Garcia in recent months, you’re right.  In both cases the players have to keep their noses clean, but if they weren’t expected to start this fall… they wouldn’t have been welcomed back in the first place following so many issues and incidents.

“We’re certainly better off today than a week ago, because he’s in school and he’s working out with the team,” Dooley said.  “He hadn’t worked out with our football team literally since the Music City Bowl.  It’s been a long time away from the football team, and it’s a good step to get him back — but we also can’t forget he has been gone that long and it’s going to be a long road back.”
