SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock and running back Mark Weisman were forced to leave the game early during the Nov. 2 loss to Wisconsin because of injuries.

Rudock didn’t return after spraining his knee in the third quarter. A sprained elbow finished Weisman’s day after he carried the ball just 9 times.

Following the game, Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said that he didn’t believe the players would miss any additional time, and the Hawkeyes’ weekly depth chart release confirmed his initial estimation. Rudock and Weisman are both listed as starters for Saturday’s game at Purdue.

In Rudock’s first season as the Black and Gold’s signal caller, he’s completed 59.8 percent of his passes and thrown 12 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. The Weston, Fla., native also has 5 rushing touchdowns.

Weisman has served as Iowa’s workhorse running back in 2013. The Buffalo Grove, Ill., native has 747 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground this season.
