Northwestern injury report

Northwestern has issued its official injury report for Saturday night's home game against Purdue.


  • LB Roderick Goodlow, knee (out for season)

  • OL Evan Luxenburg, knee

  • CB Jeravin Matthews, leg

The only new name here is Matthews, who has appeared in all five games as a reserve, mostly on special teams, and recorded nine tackles. Northwestern has no new injuries in the secondary and got safeties Jared Carpenter and David Arnold back on the field last week. Another good sign is no Drake Dunsmore, as the team's starting superback should be fine after an MRI on his hyperextended knee showed no damage. The Wildcats have to be pleased to see only three names on the report through the first five games.
