Arizona State football season ends with 31 players missing games due to injury

Here is a list of injuries that have sidelined Arizona State football players this season. We are adhering to ASU policy about not divulging specifics of injuries that happen during media availability at practices, but have free rein to provide more details on what coaches say about injuries that have occurred in game.

OL Ben Coleman: Grad transfer from Cal who likely would have been a starter. Had a lower leg injury when he arrived. Coach Kenny Dillingham said in the spring he expected him to be out for the majority of the season. Coleman started some conditioning work but Dillingham added he didn’t expect Coleman to be medically cleared for contact work until after the season is over. Can use a redshirt season if he wants. Games missed: 12.

DB Montana Warren: A true freshman who was impressive in the spring and in the first week of fall camp. Seemed to be in line for some playing time in a backup role. Injured shoulder at Camp Tontozona. Had two interceptions in team segments the day he sustained the injury. Saw his first action in a relief role against Arizona so he will use this as redshirt season. Games missed: 11.

QB Drew Pyne: Was battling for the starting spot and seemed to be in contention with Trenton Bourguet, only to sustain a hamstring injury in the Aug. 12 Camp Tontozona scrimmage. Was out exactly one month before resuming practice. Injured in the Fresno State game with Dillingham saying Pyne is dealing with three different leg ailments. Was never close to returning. Games missed: 10.

OL Emmit Bohle: Started some games late last season and was the next most-experienced lineman after Glass. Sustained a leg injury against Oklahoma State. Can apply for a medical redshirt and likely will do so. He was not recognized on “Senior Day” which is good indicator that he plans to return. Games missed: 10.

QB Jaden Rashada: Started the first two games but then was sidelined by a leg injury that had during high school but was aggravated in the second game of the season against Oklahoma State and eventually required surgery. Dillingham said at the time they would look to redshirt him. Rashada finally returned Saturday against Arizona, making the third game he has played in so that redshirt will indeed be used. Games missed: 9.

WR Jordyn Tyson: Transfer from Colorado who had a stellar season as a true freshman with the Buffaloes in 2022. Was dealing with a leg injury he had before getting here. Saw game action for the first time in the loss at Utah. Can use redshirt. Games missed: 8.

RB DeCarlos Brooks: Transfer from Cal and the team’s No. 2 running back behind Cameron Skattebo. Also a threat in the passing game. Injured in the Oklahoma State game. Returned against Washington and also played against Washington State only to be sidelined this week with a hamstring injury that was unrelated to his previous injury. Returned for Territorial Cup game against Arizona. Games missed: 7.

OL Sione Finau: Became the seventh different offensive lineman to miss a game when he was unavailable to play against Colorado after starting the first five games at left guard. Returned for the season finale against Arizona after missing more games with an illness. Games missed: 6.

OL Isaiah Glass: The only full-time starter ASU had returning on the offensive line. Injured somewhere between the first and second games. Returned for Game No. 7 vs. Washington. Played that game and the next, then mysteriously did not make the trip to Utah. Then put out on social media he would use his redshirt and seek a transfer. Games missed: 6.

DL Anthonie Cooper: One of the few returning starters on the defensive line. Injured in practice, missing the first three games. Returned for the USC game. Went down with a new injury in the Washington game and returned six weeks later against Arizona. Games missed: 6.

OL Kyle Scott: Sustained an unknown injury leading up to the Washington game, making him the eighth ASU offensive lineman to miss a game. Never returned to full practice. Games missed: 6.

OL Bram Walden: Came out of the game against Cal but did play the following week against Colorado. When the team returned from the bye Dillingham said Walden would not play against Washington. Unknown whether the injury is the same one that knocked him out of that game or something new. Games missed: 6.

OL Max Iheanachor: Listed as a backup at right tackle but pressed into starting duty due to other injuries. Injured late in the Fresno State game. Returned to action but then left the Washington game with a leg injury. Returned for game against Oregon. Games missed: 5.

RB George Hart: A backup. Undisclosed injury in practice. Made the trip to Utah but did not play. Since he gets few carries it’s hard to tell if he’s still hurt or just not being used so we’ve stopped counting more games for him as “injured.” Games missed: 5.

OL Aaron Frost: Transfer from Nevada who, like Coleman, was being counted on to help a unit that lost a lot of players. Had an ACL injury that happened in fall camp last year. Did not participate in spring drills but was cleared to participate this fall. Has played sparingly and it’s hard to tell how much of that is still the same knee issue. Certainly not as much of a factor as the Sun Devils needed him to be. Games missed: 4.

LB Krew Jackson: A local out of Queen Creek and transfer from Kansas State was not on the two deep but possibly could have seen some time in a reserve role, especially after Will Shaffer left the team because the Sun Devils were thin at linebacker. Was still on crutches at last game so was not close to returning. Games missed: 4.

P Josh Carlson: Dillingham said on Oct. 3 that his punter is dealing with a nagging foot injury and would not be available this week in a kicking capacity. He still served as holder for kick attempts but was not able to do the job he was brought in to do. Returned at UCLA. Games missed: 4, sort of.

WR Xavier Guillory: Started the first five games of the season but went down with a leg injury that put him out for the season. Was on crutches at last game so was not close to returning. Games missed: 3.

DL Michael Matus: The team’s most veteran player on the defensive side of the ball and one of its true leaders went down with a leg injury at Utah and was on crutches after the game. Dillingham confirmed in this week’s news conference Matus tore an ACL so he is done for the season. It also marks the end of his career and a tough one too. He missed all of last season with a torn ACL in the other knee which occurred late in fall camp. Games missed: 3.

DB Macen Williams: Got the start against Cal in place of Clark but then he went down in that game and did not return, meaning the Sun Devils were down to their No. 3 player at that position for the rest of that game. Games missed: 3.

DL Prince Dorbah: Along with B.J. Green the most impactful player on the defensive line. Went down in the Utah game with an arm injury not long after Matus went out and did not return. Returned against Arizona. Games missed: 2.

QB Trenton Bourguet: Started the last five games last year and contended for the starting job this season. Started the game against Fresno State after Jaden Rashada was injured, but sprained an ankle in that game, missing the next. With Rashada and Pyne out Bourguet has shouldered the load, only to be injured again at Utah. He was on crutches after the game but was able to return for the next. Missed the final game of the season with an illness. Games missed: 2.

OL Cade Briggs: Undisclosed injury in practice. Probably would have been a rotational player but pushed into starter duty when available due to other injuries on the line. Was never full healthy and played through injury. Games missed: 2.

WR Andre Johnson: Was injured during ASU’s bye week and did not practice the week of the Washington game. Returned for the Utah game and saw some playing time but did not record a catch. Games missed: 2.

LB Travion Brown: Grad transfer from Washington State and key starter because he played in Brian Ward’s defense last season and is the most counted-on player at a depth-depleted position. Sustained a hamstring injury in the game at Cal and missed the next against Colorado but returned for the next, although not full strength, and played only a quarter. Games missed: 1.

WR Elijhah Badger: The teams leading receiver each of the last two seasons missed the regular season finale against Arizona with a leg injury. Games missed: 1.

DB Jordan Clark: One of the leaders and most experienced players on defense. Missed the game against Cal. Dillingham says he is questionable this week. Games missed: 1.

DL Clayton Smith: Oklahoma transfer and starter up front, one of the team’s best pass rushers. Injured leg/ankle/knee in Fresno State game. Games missed: 1.

DL C.J. Fite: True freshman who had a good spring and was in line for some playing time with ASU thin on the defensive line. Injured in practice. Has returned. Games missed: 1.

TE Jalin Conyers: Likely the team’s highest-rated draft prospect. Has had a couple of nagging ailments. Games missed: 1.

DL Blazen Lono-Wong: Undisclosed injury, likely happened in practice. Games missed: 1.

OL Joey Ramos: The veteran has not actually missed a game but deserves a spot on the list. Broke a bone in his hand before the season started and played the first five with his hand in a club-like wrapped cast. Sustained an unrelated ailment during the bye week and did not practice leading up to the Washington game. Was not expected to play and probably would not have had the Sun Devils not been desperate to put bodies on the field there. Games missed: None.
