And the hits keep coming. Per Joe C in the STrib, the Gophers will be without guard Jon Christenson for another week and might be without KJ Maye for even longer:
Gophers coach Jerry Kill said Sunday that left guard Jon Christenson won't be able to play next Saturday against Kent State because of an injured right knee.
Kill said he still didn't know what injury Maye sustained, but said it might be a broken rib."We’ll certainly check him out and make sure it’s not a rib," Kill said.
That's enough uncertainty on KJ to avoid worrying too much...yet. Regardless of the severity, you'd have to think that he won't be playing against Kent State.
Looking Back At Colorado State
The overall injury picture is still ugly. The Gophers are banged up across the offensive line, in the receiving corp, and in the defensive backfield. Andy Greder of the PiPress has a full breakdown of how things look as of today:
— S, Damarius Travis, hamstring
— LG, Jon Christenson, knee
— WR, KJ Maye, unknown
— TE Brandon Lingen, concussion
— WR, Isaiah Gentry, hamstring
— DB, Ace Rogers, knee
— WR, Jeff Jones, ankle
Hurt but playing:
— LB, Cody Poock, knee
Hurt and could be done for season:
— TE, Lincoln Plsek, back
— TE, Duke Anyanwu, knee
On the plus side...
Sounds like the bye week couldn't have come at a better time for the Gophers.— Frothy (@FrothyGopher) September 13, 2015
