    Doesn't look good. They are putting one of those inflatable casts on his lower right leg and bringing in a cart.

    Update: Broken leg.

    Season is done. What a shame.

    Well maybe now he will fall out of the first round and we can trade down to pick him up in the second.

    Seriously, better a broken leg then an ACL/MCL tear. Easier to regain confidence.

    Hindsight is 20/20 but I bet he's wish he had declared last year. Tough break (no pun intended)

    That's a shame to hear about that. He was running all over Kentucky last night.

    On a side note did anyone else see the receiver who looked to tear his ACL in the Memphis/Ole Miss game? It was a WR for Memphis running a reverse, and he planted his leg. It bent back the wrong way, much like the Willis McGahee injury a few years back, and he went down immediately. Very nasty injury. I wish both guys the best of luck in recovering from their injuries.

    I was watching this game yesterday and when they showed the replay...ugh. It didn't look as bad as the Willis McGahee injury a few years back, but this one wasn't pretty either...

    Houston, again.
    Bush was looking like the real deal. A REAL running back. Speed and power.

    so what do you guys think this will do to his draft status?

    If he comes out I think he will definitely be second round material, unless someone(Denver) would take a chance at him in the first...and It also depends on how many good backs come out next year....If he takes a redshirt I think he will have a good enough senior season to put himself back in the first rd.

    If he runs well, first round. I was in a college fantasy dynasty team and he was my feature back. He is the Bush we want in this downhill system really...not the other one. This guy is a nasty blend of size, speed and power and he pops off the screen when you watch him. A Steven Jackson with more pop/suddeness is what I see.

    That's what I'm thinking too. You're a little higher than me. I was thinking that if he falls out of round two..take a shot. the fact is, he just is not going to have the time to come back, combine back, from this injury. Who steps up to the plate when to take on the risk ? Last year we saw Sabin take a shot at a DT with a bum shoulder, Rod Wright, in the seventh. I'm sure a third rounder will get you a look at the guy. Even then, might be '08 befor he's up to speed. Might be able to hold your water untill day two. Just a thought.

    Is there any way he's going to be able to redshirt? I heard during the game that he hasn't redshirted yet. Would playing in the first game of the season disqualify him?

    If I was his family, that's what I'd advise. I'm not a scout, but it seems if he could get the powers that be to go for it...that would be the wisest move.To apply for an emergency red shirt year. To go from premere first round/second round guy to a question mark has got to be a pretty big drop off in his pay day. Be sorta like Morency. He did look like a monster in that game.

    Hope he had the season insured ? Just a shame. But...this is why guys come out early. Easy for us as fans to say come back for your Sr. season. But there is always a chance that something like this can happen.

    Anyone see the little guy last night from Boise(SP?) state ? He's got my vote for next years Mr. # 6. Chriss Taylor looks like a great prospect , but this guy blew up Oregon St. last night.
