Iowa WR Matt VandeBerg injures foot in practice


The Iowa Hawkeyes did not look very efficient on offense last week against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, only putting up 14 points in their Big Ten opener. Now, it seems one of their most productive offensive players could be out for an undisclosed amount of time.

Tom Kakert of Hawkeye Report through Rivals reported that wide receiver Matt VandeBerg left Monday’s practice early with a foot injury. It was reported that the injury could be as serious as a broken foot.

This is bad news for the Hawkeyes as VandeBerg is one of the best players on the team. He leads the team in receptions (19), receiving yards (284) and receiving touchdowns (three) on the year, so having him out would be a big blow for this team.

The Hawkeyes may now have to turn to George Kittle, the team’s second-leading receiver, to step up for them going forward. They look to get to 2-0 in conference play on Saturday when they host Northwestern at Kinnick Stadium at 12 noon EST on ESPNU.
