Tyler Nielsen was in uniform and warmed up with the team, but did not see action. The senior linebacker had surgery on a broken hand last weekend.

Mika'il McCall who broke a leg bone in the season-opener, was in uniform and went through warm-ups. It was thought that he'd be out for the season. He did not play on Saturday.

Tom Nardo dressed and took part in warm-ups after missing last week's game against Northwestern. He did not see action against Indiana.

James Morris returned to the starting lineup but appeared to tweak his injured ankle in the second half. He was replaced by Quinton Alston.

Jordan Canzeri missed last week's game with a hamstring injury. He saw action in the fourth quarter on Tuesday.

Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz said Nielsen has a chance to be back for Minnesota.He also said that he would not rule out McCall for the Gopher game.

Keenan Davis left the game late with a leg injury. He needed help off of the field and did not return. Ferentz was unsure of the wide receiver's status after the game.
