Minnesota’s depth chart got a little thinner heading into Week 2.

On Friday night, The Star Tribune made the announcement that receiver Rashad Still (shoulder) and linebacker Nick Rallis (elbow) will miss next weekend’s game against Indiana State:

“Still, a sophomore from El Paso, Texas, injured himself on a deep pass from Mitch Leidner in the third quarter. Oregon State defender Xavier Crawford had his arms wrapped around Still as the ball arrived, so Still couldn’t brace himself for the fall and crashed onto his shoulder.”

“Rallis, a senior from Edina, hurt his elbow in the first half. The versatile linebacker was filling in for Cody Poock, who had been ejected for targeting.”

The Gophers won their season-opening contest against Oregon State on Saturday, 30-23. Next week’s contest between Indiana State and Minnesota is schedule for a noon kickoff at TCF Bank Stadium.
