Recent Injury Situation

Oct 07, 2007
Quote:NOTES: Northern Illinois junior quarterback Dan Nicholson left the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Nicholson watched the final few minutes from the sidelines on crutches. He completed 12-of-25 passes for 101 yards before his injury. Nicholson didn't throw a touchdown pass or interception. Backup Ryan Morris completed one of three passes for 12 yards, but was sacked twice. Wide receivers Britt Davis and Greg Turner did not dress Saturday. Turner sat out with a finger injury.

“I don't know,” Novak said when asked when Turner and Davis will return. “At least one week with a chance for two to three weeks. It will be a game-time decision. We will plan like they won't. A bonus if they do.”

The absence of Turner hurt the Huskies in point-after-attempts. Without his holder, kicker Chris Nendick missed two PATs. Before Saturday, Nendick had missed two PATs in his whole career. Jeff Fontana took over the holding duties Saturday.

“The first one was a high snap,” Novak said. “I don't know what happened on the second one. It's a shame. Those two missed extra point attempts were the difference in the game.”

Marcus Perez returned after a three-game absence. Perez had a 29-yard kickoff return and caught five passes for 63 yards to finish with 154 all-purpose yards.

“He gives us something back there,” Novak said of Perez. “He has the ability to break one. It was good to have him back.”
