Toledo coach Matt Campbell did not have much of an update on the health status of star running back David Fluellen following a 45-44 double-overtime win over Navy.

Campbell said Fluellen's injury is to his back. Fluellen left the game in the fourth quarter after being tackled awkwardly. The senior was walking around in the locker room after the game, Campbell said.

The status of Fluellen will be a hot topic next week as Toledo prepares for the I-75 Rivalry at Bowling Green.
