Michigan redshirt junior T Grant Newsome (knee) is hopeful that he will be able to play this coming season, but said that it will be up to doctors.

Newsome (6'7/318) sustained a dislocated knee in October of 2016 and has been put through rehab hellfire in the intervening year-plus. Doctors had some initial fear that he might end up losing his right leg. He would ultimately undergo six surgical procedures in the span of 40 days. Newsome subsequently took a medical redshirt for the 2017 season. He's been going through conditioning work with the team this winter, but will need medical clearance if he's to participate in spring practice (starting March 22). The tackle acknowledged that it's not out of the realm of possibility that doctors recommend retirement. Expect an update on Newsome's status as we draw closer to spring practice.

Colorado State HC Mike Bobo is undergoing tests at a local hospital after he recently began to feel numbness in his feet.

Bobo spoke with doctors following Saturday's scrimmage and it was recommended that he check into the hospital for observation and tests. In a statement, the Rams head coach said, "I feel very encouraged by the test results to this point and hope to have some answers soon." It does not appear that CSU has plans to put an acting head coach in place, which would hopefully indicate that Bobo's going to be back in fighting shape in the very near future. The team is working with something of a shortened preseason runway, as they will be playing a "Week 0" matchup with Hawaii a week from Saturday. If Bobo requires time off impacting the regular season, we'll pass along word as information becomes available.

The SEC has granted Florida redshirt junior WR Van Jefferson immediate eligibility for the coming season.

After Jefferson -- who transferred over to Florida from Ole Miss this winter -- was granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA at the beginning of the month, it looked more/less like a foregone conclusion that the SEC would likewise allow him to suit up this year. Check and check. The 6-foot-2, 192-pounder posted a 42-456-1 receiving line last season and adds to a Florida receiving corps which seems perpetually stocked with intriguing talent. Intrigue only counts for so much when you don't have a quarterback, unfortunately.

Ole Miss HC Matt Luke said that he expects junior WR A.J. Brown (hamstring) to be able to return to practice by week's end.

Brown (6'1/225) has been working his way through a hamstring injury for much of preseason camp to date. While the star junior wideout still has a little under three weeks to get healthy, any setback would potentially put his availability for the Rebs' opener against Texas Tech in question. Brown posted a 75-1253-11 receiving line last season. He's looking to put his best foot forward this year, his first in which he'll be eligible to declare for the NFL Draft.

Tulane redshirt senior WR Freddy Canteen (shoulder) will miss the season.

Tulane coach Willie Fritz said the shoulder injury occurred during Friday's practice. "Just diving for a ball," Fritz said. "Nothing that you don't do 100 times a week with different guys on the team." It's a devastating blow for Canteen, and the newest twist in his winding collegiate journey. A former member of Michigan and Notre Dame, Canteen missed most of last season with an injury to the same shoulder. Canteen could apply for the sixth year of eligibility. With his injury history, he'd seem to have a good shot. In the meantime, senior Terren Encalade (39 catches, 730 yards, four touchdowns last season) and junior Darnell Mooney (34-599-4) will continue to see most of the targets in Tulane's triple-option offense.

Louisville redshirt sophomore WR Dez Fitzpatrick declared that Louisville's receivers can beat "every one" of Alabama's defensive backs in one-on-one coverage.

"Every receiver in our receiver corps can honestly beat every one of their DBs one-on-one in coverage," Fitzpatrick said. "It ties into the other stuff, if the blocks are right, if the quarterback’s drop is right, we ran eight-yard routes instead of a 10-yard route, that’s the kind of stuff I feel like we need to sharpen up. But I feel like straight talent-wise, I feel like we have the upper edge against their secondary, 1,000 percent." We've never minded some good old fashioned trash talking. But Fitzpatrick and crew better bring their A-games to Orlando on Sept. 1 for the opening-week tilt. The Tide are 25.5-point favorites.

Oregon redshirt sophomore TE Cam McCormick has been running with the first-team offense in practice.

McCormick has pulled ahead of Jacob Breeland, last season's starter. Per 247 Sports, McCormick has "shown very well through the first five days of camp." Oregon has a ton of depth at the position, with USF grad transfer Kano Dillon also fighting for time.

Washington State QB Gardner Minshew said freshman RB Max Borghi is "going to be so good."

Minshew continued "He can catch the ball. He can run the ball. He runs hard and he's also one of the fastest guys on our team." Beyond his words, Minshew showed his trust in Borghi by utilizing him as a check down option three times on one drive alone during their scrimmage. The former three-star running back could wind up pulling ahead of the competition in James Williams and Keith Harrington if he continues to shine.

Clemson HC Dabo Swinney has been impressed with freshman WR Justyn Ross.

Swinney picked out Ross (6'4/195) specifically and said "His first catch was a one-handed go-up and just pluck it out of the air. Then he came right back up and one-upped himself with another one. He was spectacular today finishing plays." Ross is a former five-star recruit who chose Clemson over both Alabama and Auburn during his recruiting process and is looking like the real deal. With Tee Higgins likely to be the team's No. 1 receiver, Ross is competing with sophomore Amari Rodgers and junior Dionde Overton for playing time.

Boise State receivers coach Eric Kiesau expects sophomore WR Octavius Evans to take a "big jump" in 2018.

Speaking further, Kiesau said "He’ll be one of the guys that takes a big jump going from year one to year two. You saw it in the spring and hopefully we see it here in fall camp. I would definitely look forward to seeing Octavius out there a lot." With WR Cedrick Wilson gone, Evans is looking to be the Broncos No. 1 receiver in the red zone and will largely be competing with WR A.J. Richardson. Evans is a potential breakout candidate in 2018.

Central Michigan HC John Bonamego named redshirt sophomore QB Tony Poljan the starting quarterback.

Bonamego continued by saying "Tony Poljan is number one, he looks good. He’s made good decisions and is taking care of the football. He’s getting the ball out quicker, really all quarterbacks look better." Poljan will take over for QB Shane Morris. He's played sparingly so far in his career, completing 13-of-21 passes for 78 yards adding 125 yards and a touchdown on the ground. The 6-foot-7, 225-pound player has intriguing upside in his first season as a starter.
