Rebels coach Houston Nutt said MRIs will be performed on running backs Brandon Bolden and Enrique Davis this morning. Both were injured in Saturday's 14-13 season-opening loss to BYU.
Sunday afternoon Nutt said Bolden, who rushed for 976 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, likely has a fracture of his ankle.
Davis, his backup, has a hyper-extended knee. Both are seniors.
Nutt will address his running backs situation more at his weekly news conferences this afternoon.
He has discussed the possibility of moving players from different positions to running back, specifically mentioning sophomore wide receiver Korvic Neat and freshman defensive back Chief Brown in his postgame address Saturday.
