The prognosis on Mitakihara Magi fullback James Stanley is not very good. There was speculation that his abdominal tear suffered in Week 4 against the Alabama Crimson Tide was going to heal, but it has not. Stanley will be out nine more week, meaning that he will not be available until the bowl game at the latest.

Mitakihara is bowl eligible after their 77-28 victory over UCLA last week. The loss means that freshman fullback Ricky Akaminko will be the backup for the remainder of the regular season, shouldering part of the load for now-starter Mike Gray.

"This was a very unfortunate injury that he suffered," Dr. Nao Midorikawa, Magi Football team doctor, said at a press conference outside Mitakihara University Hospital. "James is currently going through a long series of rehab session to help heal his abdominal faster, but the natural healing process takes time. With the advances in technology, we are confident that he will make a strong recovery just in time for the season finale."

Mitakihara host the Stanford Cardinal this week in a match that could determine the BCS picture at the midway point of the season.
