FIU's outstanding freshman outside linebacker, Anthony Wint, was on crutches with a knee brace and an ice bag over his left knee Tuesday.
Wint walked off the field in the third quarter Saturday after suffering what appeared to be a left leg injury, but didn't return to the 16-13 loss to Texas-San Antonio. From what I saw Tuesday, I wouldn't expect Wint back for several weeks, maybe the entire season. He's FIU's second leading tackler behind fifth-year senior safety Demarkus Perkins and the only linebacker to start every game this season for FIU.
Junior backup running back Anthon Samuel wore the Home Depot orange injury jersey for a rib injury. FIU coach Ron Turner said Samuel could've played if the Panthers had a game Tuesday.
The line on this game started with FIU a 21-point underdog and is at 21.5 to 22 points now.
