Playing status of two Iowa RBs still unclear

Northern Iowa Iowa Football AP

It was a familiar scene last Saturday when two Iowa running backs, Damon Bullock and freshman Greg Garmon, went down with a concussion and arm injuries, respectively, since no one in the Hawkeyes’ backfield is immune to, well, anything.

It ended up not mattering too much as Iowa evaded Northern Iowa 27-16. Emerging from that game was walk-on fullback Mark Weisman, who rushed for 113 yards on 24 carries and three touchdowns. Against Central Michigan this weekend, Kirk Ferentz said he may have to continue to rely on the backup.

Bullock had 77 yards before being knocked out and Garmon had 13 yards. The only other Hawkeye to record a rushing stat beyond the aforementioned three is fullback Brad Rogers. Depth at the running back spot has been and will continue to be a concern for the Iowa. Bullock may return eventually, but concussions are hard injuries for players to come back from and be equally effective.

    Hopefully bullock can suit up. Looks like a solid back. Go hawks!

    Somewhere in Iowa, that walk-on is jumping and up and down in his room in excitement, or in the locker room crapping himself.
