Buffalo RB Branden Oliver is "day to day" with leg injury

On the weekly MAC coaches call Buffalo's Jeff Quinn said that junior running back Branden Oliver is considering "day to day" because of the leg injury he suffered in Wednesday's loss to Kent State.

"He is going to be day to day," Quinn said. "We have an outstanding medical staff that knows how to get these guys back on the field. He really banged up his leg in Wednesday night's game. I am not sure exactly where he is at in terms of today. We have to keep a close eye on him  and see how he is progressing. (Receiver) Fred Lee, it was a tough play and a very physical play but he has his hand banged up, he has it in a splint and  he is going to miss this week's game. Boomer Brock our fullback had a chest injury that is probably going to require some surgery, (defensive lineman) Steven Means is OK. Those are the four guys who had issues on Wednesday night."

Oliver current ranks fifth among FBS backs with an average of 142 rushing yards per game, a number which would be even higher if he didn't miss the entire second half on Wednesday night due to the injury.
