College Football Injury Report: Minnesota looks to heal up before season final Saturday

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The Minnesota Golden Gophers are dealing with a number of injuries as they head into their regular season finale against the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers are dealing with several injuries as they head into their final game of the regular season against the Michigan State Spartans.

Linebacker Roland Johnson, who has 21 tackles and two sacks this season, missed last Saturday's contest against the Nebraska Cornhuskers with a knee injury and is questionable to play against Michigan State. He last played Nov. 10 against Illinois, where he had seven tackles.

Center Jon Christenson also missed Minnesota's loss against Nebraska last Saturday due to an ankle injury. He is questionable to play this Saturday.

Wide receiver A.J. Barker, who leads the team with 577 receiving yards but has not played since Oct. 27 with an ankle injury, quit the team Sunday after writing a scathing open letter to head coach Jerry Kill. He has said he will transfer.

Minnesota is 6-5 overall this season and 2-5 in the Big Ten. They became bowl eligible after defeating Illinois on Nov. 10.
