DE to miss 2-3 weeks

Kansas defensive end Pat Lewandowski will miss two to three weeks because of a leg injury, according to head football coach Turner Gill.

Lewandowski, a red-shirt freshman from Blue Valley West High in Overland Park, had a fantastic spring. Most of that time was spent at defensive tackle, where the coaches moved him in hopes of providing depth on the inside. At the end of the spring, Lewandowski was shifted back to his original position, a move that Gill said was made because he believed it better fit Lewandowski’s strengths and size.

Lewandowski finished the spring second on KU’s depth chart at defensive end, behind sophomore starter Keba Agostinho and on the opposite side of junior Toben Opurum.

McDougald put on watch list

KU junior Bradley McDougald, a Dublin, Ohio native who played his first two seasons at KU at wide receiver but was shifted — for good — to safety during the final couple of weeks of the 2010 season, was one of 50 players named to the Paul Hornung Award Watch List by the Louisville Sports Commission on Monday.

The award, given annually to the most versatile player in college football, was named for legendary Notre Dame quarterback Paul Hornung, who won the 1956 Heisman Trophy and played both offense and defense at Notre Dame.

McDougald is the only safety on the list.
