WEBER PLAYING THROUGH INJURY: An AC shoulder sprain has not held back Mike Weber the last few weeks. Despite the injury, which has kept him in a non-contact role in practice, Weber ranks No. 5 in the Big 10 with 842 yards rushing. Against Nebraska, he averaged 6.5 yards per carry, against Northwestern 6.2 yards per carry. Mike reflected on his injury, “I’m in a lot of pain, but I’ve been with the training staff 24/7 getting rehab and ice…I feel good right now.” Bill Rabinowitz with more.
