Northwestern lists Dan Persa 'questionable'

There have been all sorts of questions whether quarterback Dan Persa will be ready to go for Northwestern in Week 1 versus Boston College.

So I suppose it's appropriate that Persa is officially listed as questionable on the Wildcats' injury report, which was released Thursday evening. Guess we'll just have to wait and see if Persa's Achilles tendon injury will allow him to play Saturday.

On the rest of Northwestern's injury report, only one player -- backup safety Mike Bolden -- was listed in the team's two-deep for this week. The full report:


Brian Arnfelt, DT (foot)

Mike Bolden, DB (leg)

Jared Carpenter, S (wrist)

Colin Ellis, LB (hand)

Roderick Goodlow, LB (leg)

Tony Jones, WR (leg)


Dan Persa, QB (leg)
