Running back Allen Thompson's streak of injury free days has ended at seven. Having missed most or part of the past two seasons, Thompson re-injured his shoulder and is scheduled for a MRI later this week.
The rash of injuries thus far in fall camp - - both major and minor - - have left Coach Bill Doba and company feeling a bit anxious.
"I just want to stay healthy now," Doba said. "Because last night (Monday) we looked like we could've played the Chicago Bears."
A quick glance at the list of Cougars dinged up in the last few practices shows the injury bug is thriving this Palouse summer. Defensive tackle Tai Tupai has a sprained left shoulder and will be evaluated, as will defensive end Isaac Brown and his sore lower leg. Lineman Charles Harris and receiver Chris Jordan are suffering from a sprained knee and bum hamstring, respectively. Harris's status is unknown, but Jordan should be back in a day or two.
True freshman defensive lineman Jon Conlin had his MRI at 4 PM today, but the results are not yet available.
