Indiana football wasn’t sure if D.J. Matthews Jr.  was going to be able to play against Maryland. Matthews missed the Michigan game in Week 6 due to a hamstring injury.

Indy Star’s Dustin Dopirak stated that Matthews was dressed for the game. Nothing is confirmed yet, but it’s still a good sign for the Hoosiers. Matthews was listed as a game-time decision heading into the game by HC Tom Allen.

Matthews has 198 yards receiving with 2 touchdowns on the season so far. Matthews last played against Cincinnati and has appeared in four games for Indiana in 2022.

His first season as a Hoosier was in 2021. Matthews joined the program as a transfer after spending his first few seasons at Florida State.

Indiana is 3-3 and has lost three in a row including two B1G games to Michigan and Nebraska.

We’ll see if the team decides to give out an update on Matthews closer to kickoff. Maryland-Indiana kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
