Minnesota running back Trey Potts was discharged from an Indiana hospital and is headed back to rejoin the team, according to a report from Twin Cities.com.
According to Andy Greder, Potts was in the hospital for six days after sustaining an upper-body injury during Minnesota’s 20-13 victory over Purdue last Saturday.

True freshman Mar’Keise Irving is the new backup and has tallied 112 yards on 25 carries.
Minnesota is currently 3-2 after the win at Purdue. Minnesota’s other two wins came vs. Miami (OH) and at Colorado. Minnesota has lost to Ohio State and Bowling Green this season.
Minnesota is on a bye this week and will return to action on Oct. 16 (Noon EST/ESPN2) when they host Nebraska.
