Injury tracker for Week 5 of college football

We’ll attempt to keep track the latest injuries and anything else weird that prior to kickoffs for college football today

Georgia quarterback JT Daniels looks to throw a pass during the second half of an NCAA college football game between South Carolina and Georgia in Athens, Ga., on Sept. 18, 2021.  Joshua L. Jones via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Update 2:27 p.m. It looks like Skylar Thompson will be a go for Kansas State instead of Will Howard at quarterback.

Keeping up with injuries, suspensions, and roster changes in college football is much more difficult than in professional sports. Because there are no reporting requirements, you’ll often see beat reporters and those covering the team finding out about missing players mere minutes before kickoff. Sometimes they’ll notice a player isn’t dressed during warm-ups.

Coaches and media relations people for teams are often obsequious at best regarding these matters, but we’ll do the best we can to keep up with the big ones here.

In no way should you consider this an exhaustive list. Checking with beat writers on Twitter that are in attendance before the game might be the best way forward here. But we’ll attempt to compile what we can below as the games get closer to kickoff.

The following is a compilation of Boyd’s Bets, Covers, USA Today, and any other reports we can find.

Here are all the injuries, suspensions, and any known roster changes for Week 5 of the 2021 college football season.
