There’s a chance Indiana could go into its season opener without its preseason All-Big Ten wide receiver.
Tandon Doss pulled a stomach muscle in practice last week and has sat out of most of practice ever since. Bill Lynch said Sunday that he is concerned that Doss could be out for Thursday’s 7:30 p.m. game against Towson.
Safety Chris Adkins is obviously out with his ankle injury, and Lynch said there are also concerns that junior wide receiver Dre Muhammad (ankle) and running back Zach Davis-Walker (groin) could miss the game.
There are several other players who were held out of practice Sunday, though Lynch said most of those were for precautionary reasons. They include left tackle Andrew McDonald (knee), defensive end Fred Jones, wide receiver Logan Young, tight end Leneil Himes and wide receiver Tim O’Conner. Tight end Paul Phillips, who recently returned to the team after his father’s funeral, appeared to have injured his shoulder during practice Sunday. His status is unknown.
Sunday’s practice was the first game week practice open to the media, and was the first time the team broke up into the scout team and the first and second team. Lynch has stressed that there will be a rotation at several positions, but based on who practiced where on Sunday the depth chart should look like this.
LT – Andrew McDonald
LG — Aaron Price

RG– Marc Damisch
RT — James Brewer
QB — Ben Chappell
RB — Darius Willis
WR — Tandon Doss, Terrance Turner, Damarlo Belcher

MLB — Leon Beckum
WLB — Chad Sherer
CB — Richard Council
CB — Matt Ernest
SS — Mitchell Evans
FS — Donnell Jones
Running back Antonio Banks and wide receiver Kofi Hughes were the only two true freshmen who “practiced up” on Sunday. Hughes is still playing in a hand cast for his injured thumb. He expects to have that off in four weeks.
