The Mark, Prater and Szott injuries are no surprise, so we’ll skip over those. The bigger concerns are at the other spots. Lowry left the Iowa game early with a “lower body injury.” He’ll be replaced by Deonte Gibson. The Wildcats have a lot of depth at DE, so that’s not a huge loss, but Lowry is a great player who will be missed as NU tries to get after freshman QB Tommy Armstrong.
The running back injuries are more surprising. Green is back, but now Mike Trumpy is gone, as is fourth option Warren Long. Stephen Buckley figured to get most of the carries this week anyway, but the Wildcats are losing running back depth quickly. At this point, it’s fair to ask if AIRBHG has traveled across the Mississippi River:
