Persa still questionable on injury report

Northwestern has issued its official injury report for Saturday's road game against Army. Like the first two weeks, quarterback Dan Persa is listed as questionable. Offensive coordinator Mick McCall told ESPN.com earlier today that while it's possible Persa could play against the Black Knights, he's still waiting on full clearance from the medical staff.

Here's the full rundown:


  • DT Brian Arnfelt, foot

  • DT Jack DiNardo, leg

  • S Jared Carpenter, wrist

  • CB Collin Ellis, hand

  • LB Roderick Goodlow, leg

  • WR Tony Jones, leg

  • RB Adonis Smith, leg


  • QB Dan Persa, leg

Northwestern will need veteran Niko Mafuli and its younger defensive tackles to step up against Army's triple-option offense. Although Smith will be missed at running back, Mike Trumpy is expected to return from a concussion after missing last week's game.
