Patterson, Jones probable

Indiana’s defense should be close to back to normal for Saturday’s game against Iowa. Linebacker Will Patterson (hand) and cornerback Donnell Jones (elbow) are both listed as probable on Friday’s injury report. That means Patterson likely takes his starting job back from Justin Carrington, and the Hoosiers avoid having to choose between struggling Richard Council and seldom-used Adrian Burks to fill Jones’s spot.

The Hoosiers did lose some secondary depth, however. Safeties Jerimy Finch (hamstring) and Jarrell Drane (thigh) are both listed as doubtful. Defensive end Fred Jones, who has yet to play this year, is listed as questionable.

Still out are defensive end Darius Johnson (shoulder), running back Zach Davis-Walker (foot), safety Chris Adkins (elbow) and Jarrod Smith (back).
