HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- At least three Marshall seniors could be in street clothes when they're honored before Saturday's noon home finale against Houston.
Injuries have a good chance of keeping wide receiver Aaron Dobson, linebacker Devin Arrington and receiver/returner Andre Snipes-Booker on the sidelines for the CSS-broadcast game, Marshall Coach Doc Holliday said Tuesday.
"We've got eight seniors," Holliday said. "Dobson's got an issue and is probably really questionable. Booker has a little bit of an issue and got hurt in that game (against UAB), and with Arrington, three of them might not even be dressed."
Arrington injured his knee against Central Florida and hasn't played since.
Dobson injured his right knee against Memphis and spent the loss to UAB out of pads and in a brace. Snipes-Booker returned three kicks for 77 yards versus the Blazers, but on the last return, he took a hit that had him on the ground with his helmet off and his hands on his head. He missed the UCF game with a concussion.
Holliday said that sixth-year guard John Bruhin, who missed last game with a sprained ankle, should be able to play.
Demetrius Evans started in place of Dobson against UAB and caught two passes for 18 yards.
Marshall juggled the linebacker lineup against the Blazers, moving Billy Mitchell from middle to weak-side linebacker and putting Jermaine Holmes back in the starting lineup in the middle.
He started the Herd's first six games in the middle as Mitchell recovered from a concussion. D.J. Hunter started at his normal strong-side linebacker spot.

IF SNIPES-BOOKER sits out the Houston game, Holliday said he'll likely go with redshirt freshman running back Kevin Grooms at kick returner and sophomore wide receiver Tommy Shuler at punt returner.
