Central Michigan running back Paris Cotton is questionable to play Saturday against Ball State due to an Achilles injury.
This helps explain last week's egg. If Cotton can't go, Tim Phillips and freshman Anthony Garland figure to see the most work against a Ball State rush defense ranked 109th nationally, giving up almost 217 yards per game. Garland figures to see the most carries, and may be a nice calculated risk. Phillips is a dangerous scat back, who will do his damage with less touches.
