MTSU Senior RB Tanner Not Expected to Play
Middle Tennessee senior running back Phillip Tanner is not expected to play against Maryland on Saturday.
The senior team leader injured his right knee on the second snap of the third quarter in Middle Tennessee’s 31-14 victory over Memphis on Saturday and did not return. After the game, Tanner was in a straight-leg brace and on crutches.
“When they put you in a brace, I would be very surprised if he could play for a few weeks,” Middle Tennessee Coach Rick Stockstill told The Daily Journal. “So I would say he would be out for a while.”
The loss of Tanner means the Blue Raiders will be without the back who scored all 15 of their rushing touchdown last season. Expect backup D.D. Kyles, who rushed for 32 yards on five carries against Memphis, to be Middle Tennessee’s primary running back option against the Terrapins.
