Indiana injury report: Secondary ailing

Indiana has issued its official injury report for Saturday's game at No. 18 Penn State (Big Ten Network, noon ET).


  • DE Darius Johnson, shoulder

  • DT Jarrod Smith, back

  • CB Ray Fisher, knee

  • S Jarrell Drane, thigh

  • OL Cody Faulkner, shoulder


  • CB Chris Adkins, elbow

  • DE Terrance Thomas, shoulder

  • LB Tyler Replogle, head

  • S Austin Thomas, shoulder

  • RB Darius Willis, ankle


  • DT Mick Mentzer, back

The Hoosiers are very banged up in the secondary, as they'll be without their top cover man (Fisher) for the second consecutive game. Thomas is a starter who will be missed if he can't play, and safeties Nick Polk and Jerimy Finch also dealt with injuries in recent weeks. The Hoosiers need Adkins on the field against Penn State's big wide receivers. Willis, who leads Indiana with 465 rush yards and six touchdowns, has battled ankle problems throughout his career. Replogle ranks second on the team with 75 tackles. Redshirt freshman Chad Sherer is listed as Replogle's backup on this week's depth chart.
