Monday’s injury report was a mixed bag for the Massachusetts football team.

Senior tight end Rob Blanchflower was designated as day-to-day and his status for Saturday’s game against Kansas State appears to be a game-time decision. Blanchflower hasn’t played in the Minutemen’s first two games with a pair undisclosed injuries, according to UMass coach Charley Molnar.


Jordan Broadnax missed UMass’ first two games as well with a knee injury and did not practice on Monday. UMass hasn’t provided an official designation on Broadnax’s injury status.


Shakur Nesmith, who also missed Saturday’s contest with a right arm injury he suffered in the season opener at Wisconsin, was also missing from practice on Monday.


UMass did receive a bit of good news on the injury front, though. Blanchflower’s replacement, graduate student tight end Ricardo Miller, was back at practice after missing Saturday’s game against Maine.


UMass is expected to provide further injury information regarding the Minutemen on Thursday.
