Northwestern announces injury report for Week 4; DT Oxley and SB Pugh out

Tommy Doles and Blake Hance return to the starting lineup.

NCAA Football: Nevada at Northwestern Caylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

DT Ben Oxley and SB Trey Pugh will both sit out a third consecutive game against Michigan, according to an injury report released by the football program Friday afternoon.

Alex Miller, who sat out the Duke and Akron games, will start at defensive tackle, bumping Fred Wyatt to a backup role. James Prather, Charlie Mangieri, and Eric Eshoo figure to see snaps behind Cam Green at superback with Pugh’s absence.

RG Tommy Doles and LT Blake Hance, who both missed the Akron game, will start on Saturday barring any pregame complications.

As expected, John Moten IV will start at running back with freshman Isaiah Bowser in relief.
