James out, Kirton in backfield (updated)

Kenny James is apparently completely out for today’s game after trying to give it a go in practice this week with the ankle he sprained last week at Cal. That means Louis Rankin will start.
UPDATED – As the team hits the field for warmups, James is out there trying to do a few things. So it may be premature to say he’s completely out. Also C.J. Wallace is out there appearing to go through warmups as he usually does.
There are also rumblings that with Luke Kravitz out for a week or two with a knee injury suffered Wednesday that Johnie Kirton may see some time in the backfield in certain situations. We’ll see.
Coach Tyrone Willingham said early in the week that he doubted he’d move Kirton to the bacfield for this week, but that was before Kravitz was injured. In the parts of practice open to the media this week on Tuesday and Wednesday, there were no new additions. But again, that was before the team learned on Thursday the severity of Kravitz’ injury.
