Northwestern got some major good news this week on its injury report, as star wide receiver Austin Carr is not listed on the injury report, meaning he will start against Illinois this weekend.
Carr left last weekend’s game versus Minnesota after a scary hit to the head. The Minnesota defensive back was ejected for targeting on the play and Carr did not return. However, the Biletnikoff finalist will be ready to go as Northwestern hopes to keep the HAT.
In other injury news, linebacker Jaylen Prater remains out. He has missed the past several games. The senior has been replaced by Brett Walsh in the starting lineup, and Walsh has been quite active racking up 32 tackles this season.
