Gophers wide receiver Rashad Still, who suffered a shoulder injury against Oregon State, will be out for about four weeks but the team doesn't view this as a medical redshirt situation, coach Tracy Claeys said Tuesday.

Claeys also said there's a chance tight end Brandon Lingen (shoulder) and Shannon Brooks (foot) could return for Saturday's Indiana State game, depending on how today's doctor appointments go.

Though Still is out, the Gophers do list Eric Carter (ankle) and Melvin Holland Jr. (unspecified) on their depth chart this week, indicating they are ready to go.

Still, a 6-5, 205-pound sophomore from El Paso, Texas, showed promise last season as a true freshman when he made 18 receptions, including touchdown catches against Michigan, Ohio State and Illinois.

After starting last week's season opener against Oregon State, Still made one reception for six yards. The injury occurred on a deep pass from Mitch Leidner. Still had a defender draped around him and crashed onto his shoulder.

Senior Drew Wolitarsky led the Gophers in the first game with four receptions for 53 yards. Tight end Nate Wozniak had three catches for 33 yards, and true freshman receiver Tyler Johnson was next with three catches for 31 yards.
