How Badly Were The Forgotten 5 Hurt With Week Two Injuries?

Week two saw several Forgotten 5 programs struggle with injuries. Even national media darling Houston had to play without Greg Ward Jr. and Duke Catalon. Due to some misunderstanding, I have decided to add every injury among the Forgotten 5. Suspensions, academic issues, and dismissals will not be listed.



The AAC has been a bit unlucky at the quarterback position. Holman at UCF is questionable, Ward missed the Lamar game, and Matt Davis of SMU is out for the season. Luckily, only one of the three will miss significant time. Also, Memphis has been hurting with five players on the offensive side of the ball facing serious injuries.
