NU Injury Report: Offensive line depth to be tested
Northwestern released its official injury report, and Northwestern will be down 4 important contributors.
On the offensive line, Northwestern will still be without Geoff Mogus and right guard Shane Mertz will be joining Mogus on the sideline.
The other two injuries are both in the secondary, where Kyle Quiero and Keith Watkins will both be out.
Quiero and Watkins both played nickleback in the past, and it’s unclear who will be filling that hole this week. Marcus McShepard is the fourth CB, but in the past he’s only played outside.
The offensive line reshuffling is also hard to gauge with Adam DePietro out for the year as well.
We’ve heard all year about how deep these units are, and they’ll need to be to knock off Wisconsin on the road.
