"Yeah, I thought it was a done deal (to return for Boston College) and then that hit and set me back a month," said Persa to the Chicago Tribune. "I was pretty upset."
"That's where I've had setbacks in the past," Persa said after the game.
Shortly after, Persa spoke with the NU medical staff and learned about what happened.
"The docs talked to me and said: ‘This is normal. You'll have some tweaks with this and you'll have to play through it,'" Persa said on Tuesday.
NU's next game is under the lights at Ryan Field against Michigan, and the Wildcats' All-Big Ten quarterback will make his second start of the season.
"Dan Persa worked out (Monday), and was great so we expect him to be great on Saturday."
