Powers still ailing

Blake Powers has a leg injury that will limit his availability to practice today.

Indiana coach Terry Hoeppner said during his Tuesday afternoon press conference that he had walked off the field with Powers after Saturday’s game, so he thought he was OK. But Powers’ injury was worse on Sunday, Hoeppner said.

Hoeppner, in following federal health privacy laws, didn’t identify Powers’ injury specifically. Powers limped off the field after a hit Saturday and didn’t return to the game. After the play, a trainer appeared to be working on the back of his lower legs on the sideline.

Hoeppner said Powers is expected to participate in parts of practice today, but not all of practice. Reporter Brandon Moore is scheduled to talk with Powers after practice.

We will update this story tonight.
