Colimon Out, Everybody Else OK (Probably); Hezel Gets CUSA Love

Senior starting outside linebacker Davison Colimon won't just miss this Saturday's game at Indiana, as stated in the first version of this post. Colimon tore his left pec muscle and will be out for the season, FIU coach Ron Turner said after Tuesday's practice. He suffered the injury on a missed tackle in the fourth quarter of Thursday's win at Central Florida.

Expect senior cornerback Jeremiah McKinnon, who left Thursday's game with a hamstring injury, to return Saturday in Bloomington. FIU ran the ball reasonably well against a very good UCF front, so perhaps that slices some urgency from getting redshirt freshman Kai Absheer back at right tackle. Turner said Absheer will lose the orange injury jersey Wednesday, do his first team drill work in a couple of weeks and should be ready to paly Saturday.


FIU shut out Stetson 3-0 without allowing a shot on goal and beat Fairfield 2-1 Thursday. For his role in the wins, FIU defender Marvin Hezel was named Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week Tuesday.
