Injuries Take Toll on Hawkeyes


By Becky Ogann

IOWA CITY (AP) - Injuries are adding up for the Iowa football team.

The Hawkeyes could have five starters on the sidelines in this Saturday's home game against Indiana.

Starting tight end Tony Moeaki is out with a dislocated left elbow. Starting receiver and punt returner Andy Brodell has a pulled hamstring. Offensive guard Julian Vandervelde has a sprained left ankle.

All three players left last Saturday's game at 9th-ranked Wisconsin in the first-quarter.

The other sidelined starters are place-kicker Austin Signor, with a hip-pointer, and receiver Trey Stross, with a pulled hamstring.

Iowa is coming off a 17-13 loss against the Badgers.

Iowa allowed a touchdown for the first time this season. The Hawkeyes are 2-2 overall and 0-1 in the Big Ten.
