Tandon Doss of Indiana to miss opener
Doss, a first-team all-conference selection as a sophomore in 2009, has been battling the injury in camp.
"He's been day to day," coach Bill Lynch told reporters Monday night in Bloomington, "but I thought in fairness to him and probably the other guys, he's just not making the progress that he needs to to play Thursday night at full speed."
The 6-3, 200-pound Doss ranked third in the Big Ten in both receptions (77) and receiving yards (962) last season, scoring five touchdowns.
