Army's offensive line got very beat up during the off season, so much so that at one point it looked like four linemen might miss the game. Fortunately for Army it looks like three of those four players are now listed as probable for this weeks contest.
They are also feeling better about Raymond Maples who is one of their big weapons in the backfield.
|Steve Shumaker||OL||Upgraded to probable||9/5/2014||Hamstring|
|This would be a big one for Army to have. Shumaker Has appeared in 26 career games and 23 of those are starts. Last season he was named to the Phil Steele 2013 Postseason All-Independent second team and selected to the 2013 FBS All-Indepdent Team as an honorable mention offensive lineman.|
|Hayden Pierce||DB||Upgraded to probable||9/4/2014||Undisclosed|
|Price is a Senior DB who Appeared in 11 games, starting 8 of them last season. On the year Price hadf 42 tackles of which 22 were solo efforts. His best game last year came against BC where he had eight tackles, 5 solo.|
|Raymond Maples||RB||Upgraded to probable||9/4/2014||Undisclosed|
|Maples is one of the best Army has ever had. He is coming off his second consecutive 1,000 yard season, just the 3rd Army back to ever do that. He ranks sixth on Army's all-time rushing list with 2,489 yards(2281 in the past two years) and has 10 career 100-yard rushing games|
|A true freshman who might factor in the game if there are depth issues on the line.|
|A sophomore who saw no action last season. He is slated to start at right guard.|
|He Army's backup but was last years starter versus Navy.|
|Justin Gilbert||OL||Out for season||8/15/2014||Knee|
|Gilbert was a starter last season and would have started this year had he not blown out his knee in the preseason.|
Buffalo lost face against the Dukes but the team did come out of the game unscathed.
The only known issue is an illness that Marqus Baker has been battling. That means Dwellie Striggles probably gets the start this week.
|Baker Played in all 13 games last season and with the loss of defensive backs he was going to be a starter this year. In 2013 he finished off the season with 16 tackles (10 solo) to go along with one interception against Western Michigan.|
