Iowa secured a shutout win in Week 2, but the Hawkeyes are dealing with a couple of injuries heading into Week 3.
Two Hawkeye defensive backs were involved in Kirk Ferentz’s injury update from Sunday, and it looks like one is good to go while the other remains on the shelf. Kaevon Merriweather was the first defensive back listed. He was held out of the game against Rutgers, and Ferentz said he is likely unable to go against Iowa State. Geno Stone was removed from the game against Rutgers, but Ferentz has him as likely good to go for Week 3.
Ferentz shared the injury updates during his Sunday Conversation:
“Kaevon Merriweather couldn’t go against Rutgers and my guess is he is not going to be able to go this week, either,” Ferentz said. “Jack Koerner stepped in and did a great job. Geno (Stone) got nicked up a little bit at the end of the game, but he is fine. He worked out Sunday and everything is good to go. For the most part, we’re in pretty good shape that way.”
Hopefully, the Hawkeyes are able to make up for the absence of Merriweather if he is indeed held out of action.
