Amp Campbell, CB, Michigan State
A second-team All-Big Ten selection as a junior last season, the 6-foot, 192-pound Campbell suffered a severe cervical-spinal injury against Oregon on Sept. 5 but hopes to play again. Considered a lock for a bowl berth before the season, the Spartans are 6-5.
Rob Cieslinski, DT, Colorado State
The Rams' best run-stopper, Cieslinski, a 6'4", 293-pound junior, hasn't played since injuring his left hamstring against Nevada on Sept. 12. Colorado State is ranked 58th nationally in rushing defense.
Alge Crumpler, TE, North Carolina
The 6'3", 250-pound Crumpler caught 24 passes for 278 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore last year, but he hasn't played a down this season after tearing his left ACL in March. Tar Heels tight ends have eight catches this season.
Joe Domingeaux, TE, LSU
Sophomore Domingeaux, a 6'6", 267-pound stalwart blocker, tore his right ACL during spring practice. LSU is a disappointing 4-6, and its inability to get into the end zone from inside the five-yard line resulted in losses to Alabama and Georgia.
Reuben Droughns, TB, Oregon
In five games the 6-foot, 205-pound Droughns, a junior, ran for 824 yards and scored II touchdowns. The Ducks have not had a 100-yard rusher in the five games since Droughns broke his right ankle against UCLA on Oct. 17.
John Fitzgerald, QB, Tulsa
The No. 2 passer in school history, the 6'3", 225-pound Fitzgerald was sidelined for the rest of his senior season after fracturing his right wrist against Air Force on Oct. 24. The Golden Hurricane is 4-7
Arturo Freeman, FS, South Carolina
The Gamecocks lost their defensive leader—92 tackles and six interceptions last year—in August after Freeman, a 6'1", 190-pound senior, tore his right ACL. South Carolina is 1-10 and has the third-worst defense in the SEC.
Anthony Poindexter, FS, Virginia
The best safety in the nation, the 6'1", 220-pound Poindexter, a senior, had 73 tackles and three interceptions in seven games before blowing out his left knee on Oct. 24 against N.C. State. The Cavaliers have gone 2-1 in Poindexter's absence, but they haven't replaced his leadership and intensity.
Quinton Spotwood, WR-PR, Syracuse
The 5'11", 190-pound Spotwood, who tied an NCAA record by returning four punts for touchdowns as a sophomore last season, tore his left ACL on Oct. 10 against Cincinnati. The Orangemen haven't returned a punt for a TD this season.
Chris Weinke, QB, Florida State
Forced to start after an off-season knee injury to Dan Kendra, Weinke, a 26-year-old sophomore, had thrown 218 passes without an interception before injuring his neck against Virginia on Nov. 7. His loss may be hard to overcome in the Seminoles' bowl game.
