The best news coming off of Iowa's newest depth chart was the presence of Adam Robinson in the No. 1 RB position. The sophomore was in that position last week for Indiana, but missed the game with a concussion.

Robinson said on Monday that he's back on his Facebook page. Ferentz said on Saturday that he expected his top back to return to practice on Tuesday.

Marcus Coker remained listed as the No. 2 RB. He started last weekend and ran for 129 yards.

Shane DiBona is listed the No. 1 strong side linebacker this week after Tyler Nielsen was put ion that spot a week ago. DiBona started against Indiana after it was announced that Nielsen would be out for the remainder of the season.

Jeff Tarpinian is listed as the No. 2 MLB, where DiBona was slotted last week. Troy Johnson re-entered the depth chart as the No. 2 WLB position, a spot that true freshman Christian Kirksey held a week ago.

Josh Koeppel started at RG on Saturday in place of the injured Adam Gettis. Koeppel is listed as the No. 1 this week. Nolan MacMillan is slotted as the backup. Ferentz said on Saturday that he was hopeful that Gettis would be back in practice on Tuesday.

It appears Mike Daniels has earned a starting spot at defensive tackle. He takes three spot of Christian Ballard, who is now listed as a No. 1 DE. Broderick Binns is the No. 2 DE.
