Tuesday's quickest slants

The deal here is quickness, brevity.

Hopefully, the spelling makes sense.

DT Carl Davis (leg), CB BJ Lowery (wrist), OL Nolan MacMillan (sports hernia), Brad Rogers (heart) all out.

Davis has a chance for next week. Lowery will likely miss four weeks with broken wrist.

Six to 9 true frosh could play, including all three freshmen.

Matt Tobin will start at RG.

Micah Hyde will return punts. KR will be Keenan and Jordan Bernstine.

Three or four true frosh could be in the core of special teams.

MLB James Morris needs to not worry about being "Station, Greenway, Hodge or one if those guys," Ferentz said. Later, Morris said he doesn't really feel that way and is just trying to be the best me he can be.

James Vandenberg was a state tennis qualifier at Keokuk. Wishes he would've been a wrestler.

Brandon Scherff was a 270-pound quarterback at Denison his junior year. He moved to OL after Iowa started recruiting him as an OL. Big kid. Great personality. He said he thinks he could be a tackle and has worked out at right and left.

Broderick Binns said he feels guilty about his junior year and is maybe the hungriest Hawkeye. I feel a lot of rage is about to come out. Mike Daniels said the same. "I can't wait to see him play."

The six-to-eight player rotation on the D-line is happening. Ferentz said he wants to see what everyone can do. The players said, yes, some of the guys are better against the run and some are better pass rushers. They didn't get too specific, however.
