Monday Big Ten personnel nuggets

9/13/2010

Update your depth charts, please ...

MICHIGAN

  • Redshirt freshman defensive end Anthony LaLota has asked for and received his release and intends to transfer from U-M. LaLota, who redshirted in 2009 and hasn't played this season, was rated the nation's No. 13 defensive end in the 2009 class by ESPN recruiting.

  • Linebacker Mike Jones likely will have season-ending surgery on his broken leg, and defensive end/linebacker Brandon Herron is day-to-day with an ankle injury.

WISCONSIN

  • Wide receiver David Gilreath (concussion) doesn't appear on this week's depth chart, and his status for the Arizona State game (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET) is to be determined. Coach Bret Bielema said Monday that Gilreath needs to overcome any post-concussion symptoms before being able to return. Gilreath had to be taken off the field in an ambulance Saturday after taking a blow to the head on a punt return.

  • Wide receiver Nick Toon (turf toe), linebacker Chris Borland (shoulder) and defensive end David Gilbert (concussion) all could return to practice Tuesday.

  • The status of starting right tackle Josh Oglesby (knee) will be determined later in the week.

  • Bielema also said wide receiver Kraig Appleton would have to earn an associate's degree from a junior college before having a chance to return to the team. Appleton was indefinitely suspended in February and struggled academically before leaving school.

INDIANA

  • Freshman running back Matt Perez will miss the season after tearing his ACL in practice last week. Perez was a likely redshirt candidate.

  • Wide receiver Tandon Doss is expected to practice today after missing the season opener with a groin injury. The All-Big Ten receiver will return Saturday at Western Kentucky. Receiver Dre Muhammad also should return after missing time with an ankle injury.
