The Big Tens 2016 revival could be threatened by injuries.The injury bug bit the Big Ten hard during the first month of the season. No team is hurting more than Penn State, where four linebackers -- three of them starters -- could be missing when the Nittany Lions host Minnesota on Saturday.Coach James Franklin cant explain why his team has been decimated at one position. But he said it might be connected to the sanctions imposed on the program in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.Franklin expects linebackers Brandon Bell (leg) and Jason Cabinda (hand) to return at some point, but Nyeem Warman-White (knee) sustained a season-ending injury for the second straight year. A knee injury also has ended backup Jan Johnsons season.It could go into our set of circumstances over the last three to four years having a reduced roster and guys taking a lot more reps than they would in a traditional situation, Franklin said. Does that factor into it? Is it nutrition? Is it sleep? Is it sport science? A lot of factors. Is it just a streak of bad luck?A lot of Big Ten teams are asking those same types of questions.No. 8 Wisconsin will enter Saturdays showdown at No. 4 Michigan with concerns about some of its top players. The Badgers, already without linebacker Chris Orr for the rest of 2016 with a knee injury, arent entirely sure what theyll get from star running back Corey Clement (ankle), who had just 54 yards on 23 carries in last weeks win at Michigan State.Rafael Gaglianone (back) missed the game against the Spartans and is out for the season after surgery.Michigan State will head to Indiana without linebacker Jon Reschke (ankle sprain). But fellow Riley Bullough could return this week after missing the loss to Wisconsin with what coach Mark DAntonio said was an undisclosed but ongoing issue. Andrew Dowell, who started for Reschke in the opening-game win over LSU, will step into the starting lineup on a more permanent basis.Hes a guy that can go play after play after play 100 miles an hour. One of those types of guys. Tremendous conditioned athlete, DAntonio said.Iowas hopes for a second straight West division title took a blow on Monday when senior receiver Matt VandeBerg injured his right foot.VandeBerg, by far quarterback C.J. Beathards favorite target, is out indefinitely.When those things happen, I dont want to call it a crisis situation, but thats a time when youve got a little work to do. This is just weve got to close ranks here and keep pushing forward, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.No. 15 Nebraska will likely open its home league schedule without receiver Alonzo Moore, who is nursing a shoulder injury.Minnesota will be without cornerback Coney Durr because of an undisclosed injury, and neither KiAnte Hardin nor Ray Buford, whove been suspended for violating team rules, are listed on this weeks depth chart.In the secondary, were about as thin as we can be without getting into problems, Gophers coach Tracy Claeys said.No. 2 Ohio State will be well rested after a bye last week, although its unclear if linebacker Dante Booker will play Saturday because of an MCL sprain.But the Buckeyes opponent, Rutgers, will head to Columbus without star running back Janarion Grant. He injured his right ankle at the end of a 76-yard catch and run in last weeks 14-7 loss to Iowa and is done for the season.Quanzell Lambert, a senior defensive lineman, is also out for the season after injuring his right knee against the Hawkeyes.Both starters meant a lot to the team and there wasnt any one more important than another. They are both really important, Rutgers coach Chris Ash said.

Camiseta Cristiano Ronaldo .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. Melbourne City coach John van t Schip says he isnt licking his lips at facing Western Sydneys leaky defence ahead of Friday nights A-League meeting at Spotless Stadium.But the Dutchman says fans should be salivating at the clash, given its a meeting of two good footballing sides which play the game the right way, and a certain Sydney native is heading home for the first time in two decades.Tim Cahill will play a club match in his hometown for the first time in two decades at Homebush on Friday.Van t Schip has declared the veteran forward to be 100 per cent fit after being left out of the Socceroos squad to deal with achilles soreness.Its a homecoming sure to attract a bumper crowd, and van t Schip predicts a match worthy of the occasion.Seeing them playing against Perth and against Victory you know that theres a lot of football in that team, he said on Thursday.We like to play football as well and hopefully we can get a good open game and see two footballing teams.Cahills exclusion from the Australian squad that drew with Thailand raised eyebrows.But van t Schip has been the biggest beneficiary as the veteran forward improved his condition over the last fortnight at the City Football Academy.Its important that Tim got a good few weeks of training and playing, he said.ddddddddddddHes 100 per cent ... he was struggling a bit with his achilles but thats all good now.Everyone will write and say things but we know what Tim is doing every day here. Were very happy and we know also that we as a team are going to get better.Western Sydney have flattered to deceive in recent weeks, drawing three before losing 3-0 to Victory last Saturday.When considering his opponents, the Dutchman doesnt see a poor side but one in transition, given a huge turnover of players in the off-season.Van t Schip coached two faces in the leagues most profligate defence - Andrew Redmayne and Jack Clisby - until their moves to Western Sydney, but highlighted two other faces - Nicolas Martinez and Mitch Nichols - as the Wanderers most deadly threats.Theyre going to be disappointed (at their start) but theyre also going to be fighting and going to be out there to prove a point. We have to be ready for that, he said.Van t Schip said Luke Brattan will return for City after Socceroos duty but Nicolas Colazo was likely to miss for another week.
