Jamison, Harris statuses uncertain
By Matt Fortuna
The status of two of the Big East's best running backs remains up in the air following Week 11 injuries.
Rutgers' Jawan Jamison is "50-50," coach Kyle Flood said Monday, while Temple's Montel Harris looks a bit more likely to play this Saturday at Army.
"Montel's doing well," Owls coach Steve Addazio said of Harris, who left Saturday's loss to Cincinnati in the second quarter with a knee injury. "Just got to give it a little rest and see how that goes, but I feel good about him."
Jamison hurt his ankle in the third quarter of a win over Army but returned in the fourth quarter, finishing the game with 90 yards on 22 carries, plus a 16-yard touchdown pass.
Flood said he's confident in Savon Huggins' ability to handle the extended workload should Jamison not be able to go Saturday at Cincinnati.
Louisville coach Charlie Strong said earlier Monday that leading rusher Senorise Perry tore an ACL and is out for the year.
QB shuffles: Cincinnati will stick with Brendon Kay as its starting quarterback this week after a strong debut at Temple. … South Florida has not named a starter for this week following B.J. Daniels' season-ending ankle injury two weeks ago. Temple remains undecided, too, following Clinton Granger replacing Chris Coyer this past Saturday.
