Northern Illinois Injury Updates: Akron Week

Which Northern Illinois Huskies can and can't go against the Akron Zips on Saturday?

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

According to @HuskieWire, SS Dechane Durante, who started every game except Buffalo, won't be able to go this weekend against the Akron Zips:

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.

Also according to HuskieWire, RB Jamal Womble has been "suspended indefinitely" due to a DUI he received the FRIDAY BEFORE THE HOMECOMING GAME. Hmm. Also, here's the Daily Chronicle police report.

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.
