Mark Weisman injury: Iowa RB leaves game

Matthew Holst

Iowa's leading rusher left Saturday's game with Northwestern with an undisclosed injury late in the second quarter. Weisman has been limited with an ankle problem the last two games.

In Iowa’s Saturday game against Northwestern, news has gone from bad to worse as leading rusher Mark Weisman has left the game with an injury.

Weisman was helped off the field with just over a minute to go in the first half and has yet to return. Iowa City Press-Citizen beat writer Pat Harty is reporting that Weisman is riding a stationary bike on the sideline.

Weisman entered Saturday’s game as the Hawkeyes leading rusher with 640 yards on the ground, but has also dealt with injuries the past two weeks. He sat out the end of the Hawkeyes overtime win against Michigan State after injuring his ankle, and was limited to just five carries last week because of the same injury.

Still, all is not lost for Iowa, as sophomore running back Damon Bullock emerged Saturday afternoon. With Weisman still not at 100 percent, Bullock took many of his carries in the first half, finishing with 43 yards on seven touches at intermission.

Bullock had missed the Hawkeyes' previous four games before Saturday.
