Iowa's projected starter at right tackle, Tristan Wirfs, will serve a one-game suspension after his arrest for drunken driving last weekend. Also suspended Sept. 1 against Northern Illinois is defensive tackle Brady Reiff, who mistook a police car for an Uber one week earlier in Iowa City and was cited for public intoxication. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz had this to say about the two incidents:

Iowa CB Josh Jackson has the natural instincts and ball skills to make plays in the secondary. Drive on the throw and finish. And the Packers continue to add talent at the CB position. That's going to create competition and depth.

The Chiefs are also expected to sign linebacker Anthony Hitchens when free agency opens. The former Hawkeye has the physicality to win versus the run game and his athleticism jumps on film. Hitchens can track the ball in space. This is a plus-move for Kansas City to land a linebacker in his prime years with a versatile skill set.

Iowa CB Josh Jackson runs an unofficial 4.49 40 at the NFL combine. That's a good time at 6-foot, 196 pounds. Jackson has top-tier ball skills and vision. Playmaker. Plus, he can line up in press to challenge routes or play off to get his eyes back on the QB in zone coverage. First-round ability in the secondary.

Iowa has added Derrick Foster to its football staff, filling the spot that opened this month with the NCAA allowance of a 10th assistant coach. Foster previously coached running backs at Samford. He worked at Northwestern State in 2013 and at Tennessee in 2012. An Alabama native, Foster will coach on the offensive side at Iowa, allowing LeVar Woods to focus primarily on special teams, coach Kirk Ferentz said. Woods coordinated special teams last season for the Hawkeyes while also coaching tight ends.

Iowa lost a second standout today to the NFL draft as an early entrant. Junior James Daniels, a two-year starter at center, declared his intentions Friday, joining All-America cornerback Josh Jackson. Daniels was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten pick in 2017. Iowa had not lost a player early to the NFL since 2011. Coach Kirk Ferentz confirmed the departure of both in addition to the transfer of graduate QB Tyler Wiegers to Eastern Michigan.
