Eckert out for season

Indiana offensive lineman Peyton Eckert will have season-ending back surgery.

Indiana offensive lineman Peyton Eckert will have season-ending back surgery, Indiana coach Kevin Wilson announced on Tuesday.

Eckert, a junior, hasn't played a game this season. Ralston Evans has been filling in for him at right tackle. Eckert does have a redshirt year available and will likely use it.

The Hoosiers have now lost three offensive linemen to season-ending injuries this year. Right guard Dan Feeney injured his foot in the preseason and his replacement, David Kaminski, tore his ACL against Penn State.
