Indiana injury report: Willis questionable

Indiana has issued its official injury report for Saturday's road game at No. 2 Ohio State.


  • S Chris Adkins, ankle

  • OL James Brewer, ankle

  • CB Richard Council, knee

  • K Nick Freeland, hip

  • LB Brandon McGhee, neck



The three significant names here are Brewer, Council and Willis, all starters. Indiana needs to fill the hole at right tackle with Brewer's absence, and hope the oft-injured Willis is OK to go in Columbus. As good as Indiana's pass game has been this season, the Hoosiers will need to run the ball to have a chance against Ohio State. Willis clearly provides the best option at running back. Adrian Burks likely will get the first shot at cornerback in place of Council, who is out for a significant period, coach Bill Lynch said earlier this week.
