The Gophers will have wide receiver Drew Wolitarsky back from his concussion for Saturday’s game against Northwestern, but several others, including cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun remain questionable.
Coach Jerry Kill said Tuesday that Wolitarsky returned to practice Sunday after getting injured Saturday against Ohio. Kill also had good news from Boddy-Calhoun’s MRI exam, as the All-Big Ten cornerback will not need surgery for this knee injury.
But as Kill said, “Our whole secondary is a question mark, except for Eric Murray.” Safety Antonio Johnson (concussion) and KiAnte Hardin (ankle) were both injured in the Ohio game. Kill said safety Damarius Travis (hamstring) will not be back for the Northwestern game.
Kill did say it looks like the Gophers will have the same five starters on the offensive line this week.
