SEC Injury Report
Next game: at No. 2 Florida, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)
Coach Steve Spurrier said Lattimore, who didn't practice on Wednesday but returned to the field on Thursday, might not play this weekend at Florida with a bruised hip. If he can't go, backup RB Kenny Miles is expected to start, and freshman Mike Davis could get some carries as well. Lattimore is tied for the league-lead with 10 touchdowns on the season.
DT Kelcy Quarles, South Carolina, (shoulder)
Next game: at No. 2 Florida, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)
Quarles (31 tackles, 2.5 sacks) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game. He's one of several South Carolina defensive linemen who are banged up. DE Jadeveon Clowney (foot) will play, but has been limited in practice. Look for a bigger role for DL Byron Jerideau and J.T. Surratt.
Next game: at Tennessee, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Rumors about McCarron's right knee have circulated this week, but coach Nick Saban insists that he only has a bone bruise, and no structural damage. He will be in the lineup against Tennessee on Saturday.
Next game: vs. No. 1 Alabama, Saturday 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)
The Vols' starting RB is in danger of missing Saturday's game with an ankle injury sustained at Mississippi State last week. Coach Derek Dooley listed him as doubtful on Monday, but he has done some limited work at practice this week. There won't be a final answer until kickoff.
Next game: at Kentucky, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (FSN)
The All-American hasn't practiced since the Oct. 6 loss at South Carolina due to an injured right ankle. He's considered questionable. “We're not counting him out yet,” coach Mark Richt told reporters. Jones has 37 tackles with 5.5 sacks so far this season.
Next game: vs. Georgia, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (FSN)
The promising Towles will miss another game with a high ankle sprain, meaning fellow true freshman Jalen Whitlow gets the start. Whitlow has completed 41.7 percent of his throws, with a TD and two INTs, but has run for two scores. He completed just 2 of 10 passes last week in the loss to Arkansas.
Next game: at Vanderbilt, Saturday, 12:21 p.m. ET (SEC Network)
Frazier started the first five games before giving way to Clint Moseley at halftime of the 24-7 home loss to Arkansas on Oct. 6. Moseley hasn't lit it up, either and coach Gene Chizik said he wouldn't announce a starter until later in the week.
Pac-12 Injury Report
Next game: vs. Washington, Saturday, 10 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network)
Tevis suffered the ankle injury three weeks ago in the 38-35 loss to Oregon State, missed the Wildcats' game against Stanford and rested during the team's bye week. Tevis (41 tackles, two interceptions) could return on Saturday against the Huskies.
Next game: vs. No. 20 Stanford, Saturday, 3 p.m. ET (Fox)
Galas tore his pectoral muscle this summer but has rehabbed and should be available for coach Jeff Tedford against the Cardinal. Galas, who played center last season but was switched to guard, is unlikely to start on Saturday.
Next game: at No. 10 USC, Saturday, 6 p.m. ET (PAC-12 Network)
Powell suffered a deep thigh bruise two weeks ago against UCLA but is probable for Saturday's game against the Trojans. The Buffaloes' leading rusher (294 yards) missed last weekend's loss to Arizona State.
Next game: vs. Utah, Saturday, 10:30 p.m. ET (ESPN2)
Mannion missed last weekend's win over BYU but returned to practice just one week removed from minor knee surgery. Coach Mike Riley said he's looked great in practice but will not start Saturday's game. That means junior Cody Vaz will make his second career start after throwing for 332 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Cougars.
Next game: vs. Colorado, Saturday, 6 p.m. ET (Pac-12 Network)
Telfer injured his ankle three weeks ago against Utah and is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Colorado. He was limited at practice this week. Telfer is USC's fifth-leading receiver with eight catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Big Ten Injury Report
Next game: vs. Penn State, Saturday, 8 p.m. ET (Big Ten Network)
Weisman injured his ankle on the game-tying touchdown run in last weekend's upset of Michigan State. He's been medically cleared to play, but whether he would be effective is another matter. “We have to come with the mentality that we won't have him,” coach Kirk Ferentz said during the conference's weekly teleconference.
Next game: at No. 23 Michigan, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (Big Ten Network)
Sims will travel to Ann Arbor with the team and be a game-time decision, according to coach Mark Dantonio. Sims' potential return after injuring his ankle against Indiana on Oct. 6 could be a significant factor in stretching Michigan vertically to help open up gaps for RB Le'Veon Bell.
Next game: at Wisconsin, Saturday, noon ET (ESPNU)
Gray played in his first game last weekend since Sept. 15 but re-injured his ankle in the loss to Northwestern. Coach Jerry Kill said he was downgraded for this weekend's rivalry game against the Badgers, meaning that Max Shortell, who came out of the game last Saturday but eventually returned in the second half, will get the start.
DE Nathan Williams,
Next game: vs. Purdue, Saturday, noon ET (ESPN2)
Williams is expected to return from a concussion on Saturday against the Boilermakers. Due to shallow depth at the linebacker position, coach Urban Meyer has said he'll consider using the defensive end at the position after starting LB Etienne Sabino broke his leg two weeks ago against Nebraska.
Next game: at Northwestern, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPN2)
Coach Bo Pelini said Burkhead will play against the Wildcats on Saturday. He left the Oct. 6 game against Ohio State after rushing for 119 yards on 14 carries and was fortunate that the bye week gave him even more time to recover. Pelini said he's eased the senior back into practice this week.
ACC Injury Report
Next game: vs. North Carolina, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (ESPNU)
Wallace is listed as questionable for the Blue Devils' rivalry game on Saturday. He hasn't played since the win against Memphis on Sept. 22. Fellow DL Dezmond Johnson (lower body) was also listed on the injury report as questionable. The DE has two sacks this year and adds depth to the defensive line, which gave up 269 rushing yards last week to Virginia Tech.
Next game: at Maryland, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPNU)
The Wolfpack offensive line will likely get a huge boost from the 6-7 tackle as Crisp is probable for Saturday's game against the Terrapins. Fellow linemen Andrew Wallace, who's been dealing with a foot injury, will also likely see the field. Finally, senior RB James Washington is expected to return from an ankle injury.
Next game: vs. No. 14 Florida State, Saturday, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Morris is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Seminoles after sustaining an ankle injury in last weekend's loss to North Carolina. He was at practice on Wednesday but coach Al Golden said he was limited to stationary throws. Backup Ryan Williams, who was 9 of 13 against the Tar Heels, will likely get the start.
Next game: at Virginia, Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET (ESPN3)
Campanaro broke his hand on Sept. 29 against Duke and is still a few weeks away from returning for the Demon Deacons. Even after missing the Oct. 6 loss to Maryland, Campanaro is by far Wake's biggest threat through the air. He's sixth in the ACC with 38 receptions.
Next game: at No. 19 Clemson, Saturday, noon ET (ESPN2)
Miller fractured his fibula in last week's game vs. Duke and is out for the rest of the season. He was the lone returning starter among Virginia Tech's linemen. Senior Michael Via, who's played tackle, guard, and center throughout his career, is expected to replace him.
Big East Injury Report
Next game: at Syracuse, Friday, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN)
McCombs, the Huskies leading rusher (484 yards), missed last week's loss to Temple with a sprained wrist. Coach Paul Pasqualoni said Monday the sophomore was probable for Friday's game at Syracuse. The Huskies had just 88 rushing yards in last weekend's loss to Temple.
Next game: vs. South Florida, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Miller was injured two games ago against Southern Mississippi and was replaced by OL Kamran Joyer, who was then injured against Pittsburgh. Both players are questionable for Saturday's game against South Florida, according to coach Charlie Strong. This one is personal for Joyer, who originally committed to USF in 2009.
Next game: at Temple, Saturday, noon ET (Big East Network)
Federico missed last week's game vs. Syracuse but will be monitored throughout the week. If he can't go, walk-on K Nick Borgese, who hit two of three extra-points and a 25-yard field goal against the Orange, will play. "There's a reason why Kyle Federico was the starting kicker at the beginning of the year," Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said. "But, if he's not 100%, we have a lot of confidence in Nick that he can do the job for us like he did on Saturday (against Syracuse)."
Next game: vs. No. 15 Rutgers, Saturday, noon ET (Big East Network)
Brown reinjured his ankle in last week's win over Connecticut, and he is listed as day-to-day for Saturday's game. If Brown can't go, the Owls will look to Montel Harris, who rushed for 142 yards on 30 carries last week.

Big 12 Injury Report
Next game: vs. Baylor, Saturday, 8 p.m. ET (ABC)
Hicks has missed the past three games and the Longhorns' defense has consequently struggled to stop opposing rushing attacks. The junior standout is listed as probable for Saturday's game against Baylor, which averages 169 rushing yards per game.
Next game: vs. No. 24 Iowa State, Saturday, noon ET (FX)
Lunt's missed the past two games since injuring his knee on Sept. 15 against Louisiana Lafayette. Coach Mike Gundy isn't saying who will start on Saturday, but there's definitely a chance Lunt could return. Freshman J.W. Walsh hasn't been bad, but the Cowboys scored only 20 points last week against KU, which has one of the league's worst defenses.
Next game: vs. No. 4 Kansas State, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET (Fox)
Jenkins is out for Saturday's game against Kansas State with a slight cartilage tear, according to coach Dana Holgorsen. The Mountaineers are the 123rd-ranked pass defense in the country, but defending the run will be the top priority against the Wildcats, who average almost 250 rushing yards per game. West Virginia WR Stedman Bailey, the team's leading reciever with 766 yards and 14 touchdowns, is questionable with an ankle injury while RB Shawne Alston is still listed as day-to-day. It's been four weeks since Alston sustained a thigh bruise.
