Senior Bowl Busted

Texas wide receiver Limas Sweed can't catch a break. After an injury-plagued season allowed the senior to see time in only six of the team's 13 games, it looks like the Senior Bowl has been no nicer to him . Sweed aggravated an existing injury to his left wrist during one-on-one drills early in the week and as a result, has spent much of his senior week experience sitting and watching. Not exactly what this fifth-year senior, former all-conference selection had in mind.

"The last couple days in practice, the one-on-ones, the guys went to break the ball up and bent my wrist forward," Sweed said. "It's 100 percent healed [after surgery], but my range of motion is about 30 percent. You can imagine how that felt. It's hurting too bad."

Sweed insisted that he wants to play, but it's more important for him to be smart with the NFL Draft less than three months away.

And he's not the only one hurting in Mobile.

LSU wide receiver Early Doucet, who was back and forth all season with various ailments, sat out of Wednesday's practice with a minor hamstring injury, but was expected to be well enough to play on Saturday.

West Virginia fullback Owen Schmitt also suffered an injury on Wednesday, tweaking his knee. Reports stated that Schmitt was able to walk back to the locker room on his own, but he is not expected to play on Saturday. UNLV linebacker Beau Bell will join Schmitt on the sideline with a busted knee, with the list of questionable players includes East Carolina running back Chris Johnson (shoulder), Michigan safety Jamar Adams (heel) and Michigan linebacker Shawn Crable (back).
