The Minnesota Golden Gophers got beaten badly by Iowa on Saturday, but they managed to escape the contest relatively injury free.
The Minnesota Golden Gophers got beaten badly by Iowa on Saturday, but fortunately they didn't suffer any seemingly serious injuries in the process. Foster Bush did not play against the Hawkeyes with an undisclosed injury, but there is no word yet on what exactly that injury is or how long he will be out for. Fellow lineman Tommy Olson was also forced out of action against Iowa; he's dealing with an ankle issue. Both linemen are currently listed as day-to-day.
Quarterback MarQueis Gray missed the game on Saturday, and Max Shortell did not impress in his first Big Ten start on Saturday. Gray is still dealing with the ankle sprain he suffered against Western Michigan, but there is a chance he'll be ready again in two weeks.
Wideout Andre McDonald has been hospitalized with a heart issue, but he was cleared to practice again this past Wednesday. McDonald did not make the trip on Saturday, and he's currently listed as day-to-day.
There was one notable injury in the Big Ten on Saturday, as Nebraska linebacker Zaire Anderson tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. The Huskers managed to beat Wisconsin after trailing by 17 in the second half.
The Gophers have two weeks to get healthy, as they don't play again until Oct. 16. They'll be hosting Northwestern in that game, and the Wildcats are off to a fantastic 5-0 start to the season.
