Northwestern injury report: Week 2
Northwestern has issued its official injury report for Saturday's home opener against Illinois State.
- Safety David Arnold, foot
- Linebacker Roderick Goodlow, knee (ACL, out for season)
- Guard Keegan Grant, illness
- Wide receiver Tony Jones, shoulder
- Defensive tackle Niko Mafuli, knee
- Linebacker Tim Riley, shoulder
- Linebacker Bryce McNaul, shoulder
Mafuli, the team's No. 3 defensive tackle, sustained the injury last week at Vanderbilt and will be replaced by Will Hampton. McNaul actually has been upgraded after being listed as out on the Week 1 injury report. He should be back for Big Ten play, if not sooner, although his injury history is a concern. Northwestern also would like to get Arnold back on the field, as the depth situation at safety isn't great.
