In Saturday's 29-26 loss to the Western Michigan Broncos, Northern Illinois lost starting quarterback Chandler Harnish to a foot injury in the first quarter. Kill feels that they will know more about Harnish's status later today. "I really don't know," Kill said. "He goes to the doctor today. Hopefully we'll find out the situation with his foot. He felt like he broke his foot during the game. We had some doctors look at it and he had an X-ray there. At that point in time, they didn't see anything broken, but it swelled up pretty good. So he's going to see the doctor this afternoon and we'll see."
With uncertainty surrounding Harnish's status, the Huskies are relying on senior quarterback Dan Nicholson and redshirt freshman Demarcus Grady. Yet Nicholson is dealing with his share of aches and pains coming off of off-season shoulder surgery. Both Nicholson and Grady could see playing time in NIU's home opener on the 20th. "Danny's shoulder is not 100%," Kill said. "He's very sore today. If Chandler can't go, we'll have to play both those kids, because Danny's shoulder is not where it needs to be at."
Senior wide receiver Britt Davis did not make the trip to Kalamazoo this weekend due to health issues. Kill is hopeful that Davis will return to practice this week. "We hope so," Jerry said. "He just had a health situation."
