MINNEAPOLIS — Starting Iowa middle linebacker Jack Hockaday exited Iowa’s 48-31 win over Minnesota early on Oct. 6 with a left-knee problem.

“It’s not good,” head coach Kirk Ferentz said. “He’s on crutches, and [his knee] is locked up on him a little bit right now. But we don’t think it’s unstable, and that’s a good sign, but we’ll know more after an MRI.”

Before leaving the game, Hockaday had 5 tackles (1 solo). Amani Jones (who was benched in favor of Hockaday in Week 1) filled in the game, tallying 9 tackles, 2 tackles for a loss, and a sack.

When asked what direction the Hawkeyes would go to possibly replace Hockaday at middle linebacker, Ferentz didn’t have any immediate answers.

“That’s a great question,” he said. “We’ve got a week to figure it out.”
