Going into Week 13 here is the college football injury report.
We have made it to the final week of the regular season. What a college football season it has been. There have been some great games and some bad ones. Here is the injury report for rivalry week.
Travis is the biggest name on the college football injury report after he suffered a lower leg injury in the first quarter against North Alabama. Backup Tate Rodemaker came in for the Seminoles and finished the game off. Rodemaker came in and threw for 13-23, 213 passing yards, and two passing touchdowns. It was not an awful game, but he is no Jordan Travis.
Travis said on Instagram Live, “I’m doing good, feeling good.” Travis confirmed the end of his Florida State career on social media, saying, “Although the injury I sustained on November 18, 2023, marks the end of my Seminole playing career, the great memories created here at FSU will never fade.” Travis will end his Florida State career with 8,643 passing yards, 65 passing touchdowns, 1,950 rushing yards, and 31 rushing touchdowns.
It is very unfortunate that he got hurt because he is one of the positive faces in college football. What is next, Florida State? Tate Rodemaker will now take over starter duties, and freshman Brock Glenn will be Rodemaker’s backup.
Mertz suffered a non-displaced collarbone fracture in the loss against #9 Missouri, per Billy Napier. Mertz will end the season with a 72.9% completion percentage on 2,903 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns, and only three interceptions.
Florida will start redshirt freshman Max Brown against #5 Florida State this weekend. Brown has played well during the time that he has played, but he will have to perform because Florida State has the 15th-best passing defense in the country. The Gators are also still in contention to get into a bowl game but they have to win against the Seminoles.
Arkansas RB Raheim Sanders will undergo surgery for a torn labrum, Sam Pittman announced. Sanders is done for the season. The only game the Razorbacks have left is against #9 Missouri.
Sanders has not been himself this season; he only has 62 carries for 209 yards and two rushing touchdowns. It is hard to beat the season he had in 2022, but injuries can affect players, and it showed this season for Sanders.
AJ Green has been Arkansas’s best running back, with 63 carries for 312 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. Let Arkansas get healthy, and their rushing attack will improve in 2024.
The Michigan Trio:
The college football injury report for Week 13 features a trio of Wolverines: receiver Roman Wilson, offensive lineman Myles Hinton, and LaDarius Henderson should be good to go against Ohio State, per Sherrone Moore.
Wilson went out after a hard hit against Maryland. Wilson is the leading receiver for the Wolverines. He has 37 receptions for 612 yards and ten touchdowns. Michigan would have struggled if he could not play against Ohio State.
Hinton suffered a knee injury, but there was no structural damage, so Hinton should be good to play. Henderson did not play against Maryland, but he will also play against the Buckeyes.
Sanders was knocked out of the game against Washington State last Friday with a wrist injury. Sanders is considered day-to-day, and it is uncertain if he will play against Utah.
Sanders has been sacked 52 times this season, which is the highest in the FBS. While he has been sacked way too many times, he has 3,230 passing yards with 27 touchdowns and three interceptions.
