Which Northern Illinois Huskies can and can't go against the Akron Zips on Saturday?
Doeren says Duchane Durante will not play this week because of sprained ankle. He is able to walk. Hoping for him to be back for WMU.— HuskieWire (@HuskieWire) October 16, 2012
CB Marlon Moore received his first start because Demetrius Stone moved over to replace Durante at SS. The secondary has enough depth to survive, but Durante is a playmaker. Kind of O/T, but did CB Jhony Faustin ever come back 100% from his ankle injury? Weird situation there with Moore taking his spot.
Womble is a big back and a definite goal-line option that we likely won't have anymore this season.
No word on WR Perez Ashford yet, as he hasn't played since he suffered a sprained ankle vs. Central Michigan. Receiving depth is not an issue though, Ashford also receives punts.
