Good news on injury front for Iowa football team

[ 0 ] November 13, 2013 |

IOWA CITY, Ia. — Tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz and cornerback B.J. Lowery were knocked out of Iowa’s 38-14 win against Purdue with injuries.

But it sounds like both should be good to go in the Hawkeyes’ next game, Nov. 23 against Michigan.

“If we played this week, we have one guy who might be doubtful,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. “But we’re not playing this week, which is good news. The player should be good to go Sunday.”

The status of defensive end Dominic Alvis, who has been sidelined since the first half of the Ohio State game Oct. 19 with a back injury, remained cloudy.

“We’ll know more here in a week, maybe by Tuesday,” Ferentz said. “He’s progressing. He hasn’t had any contact yet. We’ll have to wait and see.”

Who gets the carries? Sophomore Jordan Canzeri emerged for the Hawkeyes at Purdue, rushing for 165 yards. The question remains: Will former fourth-stringer Canzeri, Damon Bullock, Mark Weisman or LeShun Daniels get a majority of the carries down the stretch?

“We’ll figure it out,” Ferentz said. “I wish I had the answer.”
