Indiana injury report

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Indiana has issued its official injury report for Saturday's game against Illinois (Big Ten Network, 7 p.m. ET).


  • DE Darius Johnson, shoulder

  • DE Fred Jones, foot

  • LB Leon Beckum, ankle

  • DT Jarrod Smith, back

  • CB Chris Adkins, elbow

  • RB Zach Davis-Walker, foot


The defense is a bit more banged up than last week, as both Adkins and Smith will miss the Illinois game. Adkins has appeared in all six games and recorded 14 tackles and an interception. His absence thins the Hoosiers' depth at cornerback. Willis missed last week's game and has dealt with ankle injuries since the preseason. It will also be interesting to see how the defense responds after several key contributors had the flu last week. Saxon, the team's starting right guard, didn't practice Monday. Junior Cody Faulkner would step in for Saxon at right guard. Willis is listed as the starter on this week's depth chart and would be replaced by Demetrius McCray and Trea Burgess.
