IOWA CITY — Iowa’s depth chart released Monday does not include wide receiver Keagan Johnson, linebacker Jestin Jacobs and cornerback Terry Roberts.
Jacobs returned from his Week 1 injury in Saturday’s 27-10 win over Rutgers, but he had to leave the game again because of injury.
“The initial report doesn’t sound good,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said after Saturday’s win.
Roberts was a late scratch from Saturday’s game against Rutgers. Johnson has continued to battle a “soft tissue” injury, Ferentz said. His only game action this season has come against Nevada in Week 3.
The exclusion of a usual starter traditionally means they’re not expected to play, but there have been exceptions to that. Johnson and fellow wide receiver Nico Ragaini played against Nevada despite not being on the depth chart that week.
Ferentz has his weekly news conference on Tuesday, which will likely include more information about the status of Johnson, Jacobs and Roberts.
Logan Klemp is the starter listed at Leo with Jacobs out again. Cooper DeJean is a first-teamer at both cornerback and Cash while Roberts is out. Sebastian Castro is the second-team option at Cash.
