In news that came out of nowhere this morning, Walter Stewart is out indefinitely with an upper body injury. Take it away Koch:    Senior defensive end Walter Stewart will not play due to an undisclosed upper body injury that he suffered in last week’s game against Fordham. Stewart continued to play after sustaining the injury. There’s no word yet on how long Stewart will be out, but indications are that it will be for more than this game. That’s a huge blow for a UC team that faces a six-game stretch of Big East Conference games beginning next week at Louisville. Well this is just awful news. Cincinnati doesn't have a bye week the rest of the season. Butch Jones didn't mention Stewart being injured at all in his press conference on Tuesday. Stewart is 4th on UC in tackles with 22. He leads the team in tackles for loss and sacks with 7 and 5 respectively. He's one of the best rushers in the Big East. Just a major blow.  The men expected to fill his spot would be Brandon Mills, Josh Posley and Silverberry Mouhon. Posley and Mouhon are freshmen. Mills is a senior, but he's been a rush end primarily.  Cincinnati had to deal with a major injury last season when Zach Collaros went down. Now the defense has their best player go down. It's all about how you respond to adversity. The Bearcats are going to put next man up to the test.
