Indiana injury report: Fisher out

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Indiana has issued its official injury report for Saturday's home game against No. 21 Wisconsin (Big Ten Network, noon ET).


  • DE Darius Johnson, shoulder

  • CB Chris Adkins, elbow

  • DT Jarrod Smith, back

  • CB Ray Fisher, knee

  • S Jarrell Drane, thigh

  • OL Cody Faulkner, shoulder

  • DE Terrance Thomas, shoulder


  • S Jerimy Finch, hamstring


  • RB Zach Davis-Walker, foot

  • S Nick Polk, ankle

  • RB Darius Willis, ankle

  • DE Fred Jones, foot

Fisher is a big loss for Indiana. He's the team's top cover corner and a very dangerous kick return man, leading the Big Ten and ranking fourth nationally in return average (37.4 yards per return). Wide receiver Tandon Doss and running back Demetrius McCray will handle return duties Saturday. The Hoosiers are thin at cornerback with Adkins out and Donnell Jones also battling an elbow injury. Adrian Burks will get the start in Fisher's spot, with Richard Council serving as his backup. The news is more promising on both Polk and Willis, two starters whom the Hoosiers will need to upset the Badgers. Polk sat out last week's game against Iowa and Indiana endured several critical breakdowns in the secondary down the stretch.
