Injury Report: WMU Dee Eskridge Sidelined For Year

A broken collarbone suffered during last weekend’s trip to Syracuse has put Western Michigan cornerback Dee Eskridge on the sidelines for the rest of the year, head coach Tim Lester said.

Filling in for Eskridge, WMU has three names listed as potential replacements: sophomore Patrick Lupro, Temple grad transfer Kareem Ali, and redshirt-freshman Keni’H Lovely.

WMU’s defense is currently leading the MAC with 6.9 yards per pass attempt allowed, but a lot of that number has to do with playing Monmouth (4.6 Y/A vs. WMU) and Georgia State (5.0 Y/A) than anything else. In any case, it doesn’t help when lack of depth at cornerback is what helped move Eskridge over from offense, now WMU’s got to find a replacement for the replacement.
