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.

No QB, No Problem?

On Championship Saturday, two teams had to play without their starting quarterbacks, but that did not seem to matter much to either one. LSU starting QB Matt Flynn sat out the entire SEC Championship game with a sore shoulder, but sophomore Ryan Perrilloux stepped up when he stepped into the starting role. Over in Morgantown, West Virginia QB Pat White left the Backyard Brawl in the scoreless second quarter with a disloacted thumb on his non-throwing hand . Reports were that the stud signal-caller could not so much as move the thumb, and until that status changed, on the sideline he would stay.

West Virginia: White Out, Again

After a game-time decision put West Virginia quarterback Pat White back into his starting role against Syracuse, another injury took him right back out. Midway throught the third quarter, the junior left the game and was not expected to return. Conflicting reports attributed the pain to a shoulder injury and rib irritation, but whatever the cause, the former Heisman hopeful left the game in pain. He sustained the injury while being tackled at the end of a 27-yard run. Jarrett Brown came in to replace him, as Brown did a week ago against USF, but this time he came into a much better situation, as the Mountainers led 38-7 when White left the game. White completed 12 of 15 pass attempts for 145 yards and a touchdown and carried the ball 14 times for 86 yards and another TD before leaving the game.

West Virginia: White Mystery

As of Tuesday, Pat White's thigh bruise is still bruising, which is bothering the No. 13 Mountaineers. West Virginia lost its starting quarterback in the second quarter of last week's loss to USF, and so far no decision has been reached as to when they will get him back. The junior said on Monday that he was "a lot better" after taking the off-day that followed a light practice on Sunday, but the Mountaineers are far from making the call as to who will start against Syracuse on Saturday.

West Virginia: Grey Area For White

West Virginia cannot be pleased with anything that happened last Friday night. The Mountaineers were upended by No. 18 USF, the same conference team that upset them last year, and lost their starting quarterback in the process. Junior QB Pat White is listed as day-to-day as he recovers from a bruised thigh he sustained in the second quarter of Friday's game. White did not play in the second half as he hobbled around the sidelines with his thigh tightly wrapped, and it looks like we might have to get used to that picture, at least for a little while.

West Virginia: White Seeing Red

West Virginia quarterback Pat White left Friday's game against USF with a bruised theigh late in the second quarter, but that wasn't the worst news the Mountaineers would receive for the evening. The Heisman Trophy candidate spent the rest of the game on the sideline, noticeably limping around while his teammates passed up several opportunities to get themselves back into a losing ballgame. The result put West Virginia on the bottom half of a 21-13 score, but White's injury is equally upsetting, as the junior quarterback was noticeably in pain throughout the second half and no words have been said about his return.
