Minnesota star receiver Chris Autman-Bell will not play for the Gophers on Saturday despite going through warmups.

He participated in the Gophers’ pre-game warmups before kickoff vs. Miami (Ohio), but Minnesota is opting to give him another week of rest.

Autman-Bell initially suffered the injury during Minnesota’s fall camp. He was a game-time decision vs. Ohio State in Week 1, but wasn’t able to suit up vs. the Buckeyes either.

The Golden Gophers were still competitive vs. OSU, even holding a second-half lead before star running back Mo Ibrahim went out with a leg injury.

Autman-Bell has had a productive career so far for the Golden Gophers. He has 78 catches for 1,250 yards and 6 touchdowns in his career. He’s spent most of his time with Minnesota being overshadowed by former star receiver Rashod Bateman.

Minnesota currently leads Miami (Ohio) 7-0 mid-way through the first quarter.
