I didn't know he was injured, but on CFN, they say that he has a banged up shoulder and that DT will end up playing a lot. Can anyone confirm this???

was Leak's tweeked ankle that he sustained during the Marshall game. He appeared to be over that injury. I don't recall seeing him get hurt during the South Carolina game. :roll:

but here is the quote from CFN:

Utah State (2-2) at Troy (2-2) , 3:30 pm ET ESPN Game+
Why to watch: Troy started out the season with a splash beating Marshall and Missouri, but all the momentum quickly faded after losing the Sun Belt opener to New Mexico State. The Trojans can't afford another loss while Utah State, a 14-7 winner over Idaho, can become one of the shockers of the early Sun Belt race with a 2-0 start. The Aggies stunned UNLV 31-21 last week.
Why Utah State might win: Never discount the importance of momentum. After the win over UNLV, the Aggies have a new found confidence. Utah State is third in the nation in punting, while Troy is only averaging 5.36 yards per return. With starting QB Aaron Leak hurting, the bad Trojan offense gets even worse.
Why Troy might win: Utah State needed turnovers and UNLV mistakes to win, and no one should only beat Idaho by seven. This isn't a great offense and it won't go on any long, sustained drives. Even after the two losses, Troy has the best defense in the league by far only allowing 17 points and 301 yards per game. The Trojans easily lead all Sun Belt teams in most defensive categories.
Who to watch: Is Utah State sophomore Tony Pennyman going to be the team's star receiver? After a solid first three games he torched UNLV for 119 yards and a touchdown. The Troy secondary is tremendous and needs to close down the Aggie passing game. Utah State can't run, so if Derrick Ansley and the Troy back seven does its job, they'll fly home with the W. For Troy, QB Aaron Leak is questionable after hurting his shoulder against South Carolinaso freshman D.T. McDowell will see plenty of action.
What will happen: The only way Utah State wins is if Troy turns it over at least five times. Even if that happens, the Trojan defense will clean up the mess.
CFN Prediction: Troy 17 ... Utah State 13 ...

That is the first i have heard of this. Has anyone seen him practicing or heard LB say anything about this?

Leak looked fine in practice. Throwing well as running. Troy spent a considerable amount of time on its passing game this week with both DT and Leak getting equal reps.Saw some option this week also.
