Gophers offensive lineman Josh Campion, who started every game the past three years, won't play in Thursday night's season opener against TCU because of an unspecified injury.

Campion came onto the field in a white jersey to cheer on his maroon-jerseyed teammates.

Left tackle Ben Lauer (knee surgery) appears healthy and is slated to start. The projected starting O-line:

LT Lauer, LG Jon Christenson, C Brian Bobek, RG Connor Mayes, RT Jonah Pirsig.

NEW START TIME: The Gophers have also announced that the kickoff will be moved to 8:15 p.m.

Keep checking back here for other updates. The Star Tribune Live Blog will also be flowing with updates from inside and outside the stadium.

Update: WR Isaiah Gentry (hamstring) is also out for tonight's game.

Chris Streveler would be the backup QB if something happened to Mitch Leidner, but Demry Croft and Jacques Perra both lined up with the 2's during warm-ups.
