Injury update (Updated)

Army coach Rich Ellerson said it might be too early to call on the status of long list of injured players, which included senior running back Raymond Maples, junior fullback Larry Dixon and senior tackle Momo Kime.

When asked to specifically address injuries to Maples and Dixon on their status for Saturday’s home game against Wake Forest, Ellerson said, “We don’t know. It’s just too early in the week to say that. The good news is that we don’t know. Other than to say that we are banged up and we are going to have to practice judiciously in the early part of the week just to make sure we’re working with the guys that we plan to play with on the weekend. So we are going to have to make a call within the next 24 hours in terms of how to practice and who to practice based on where they are.”

So, none of the injuries are season-ending.

Hearing Maples (apparent groin injury) is probably doubtful for the game.

Dixon, who appeared to have suffered a right leg injury early in the third quarter in a 34-20 loss to No. 5 Stanford Saturday, will try to practice this week.

“I feel good,” Dixon said. “That’s not my call. We’ll see what the trainers say. I’m just going to do what they tell me to and keep working as hard as I can. That’s got me as far as I’ve gotten.”

Senior tackle Momo Kime, junior defensive end Bobby Kough and junior running back Terry Baggett, who were banged up, should be able to play.
