Bloomington – Darius Willis and Justin Pagan should both be available for Saturday's match-up with Akron.
Indiana University released its final injury report heading into the 3:30 p.m. game at InfoCision Stadium and both Willis and Pagan are listed as probable for the contest. Pagan missed the Eastern Kentucky game and then saw limited time against Western Michigan due to ankle injury. Willis, meanwhile, was a late scratch from last week's 23-19 win against the Broncos due to an ankle.
The Hoosiers are also hoping to have cornerback Donnell Jones available for the first time this year. Jones emerged from fall camp as a starter opposite Ray Fisher, but has missed the first two games with a hamstring injury. Jones is listed as questionable for Saturday.
Five players have been ruled out of the game, with the most notable being junior guard Cody Faulkner due to a shoulder injury. An experienced second-stringer who started 11 games last season, Faulkner has missed the first two games due to injury. He's joined by Alex Perry (ACL), Kyle Kozak (shoulder), Zach Davis-Walker (shoulder) and Fred Jones (foot) among those who will miss the contest.
Other players on IU's injury list include Terrance Thomas (shoulder) and Chad Sherer (hamstring), both of whom are questionable.
