Indiana football got some good news on the potential return for one of their defensive backs on Tuesday.

The team has dealt some major injuries this year with the likes of quarterback Michael Penix Jr missing time and wide receiver DJ Matthews out with a torn ACL.

In spite of all of Indiana’s injury troubles, it looks like a return for Tiawan Mullen maybe just on the horizon. Mullen returned to practice on Tuesday and stated that it went smoothly.

Mullen had an injury before the Penn State game during Week 5, and hasn’t played since. The defensive back was crushed when he found out he was going to miss extended time and couldn’t help out his teammates.

However, Mullen is remaining vigilant and is hoping for a return to action on Saturday against 4-3 Maryland. He hasn’t let his injury stop him from helping his teammates in any way he can.
