Drew Tate’s spot as the starting quarterback for the Iowa Hawkeyes has been solidified by an injury to backup Jason Manson. Hawkeye coach Kirk Ferentz says Manson will be sidelined by a foot injury. Ferentz says they put a screw in Manson’s foot and he’ll be out probably for three weeks. He says it was a surprising thing that happened three or four days ago and started hurting. Ferentz says there are a lot of question marks on the offensive line. He says the unit has had a hard time jelling, although he says they’ve had some good performances individually. Ferentz says they’ll probably play 7 or 8 linemen in the game.Ferentz say a young group of receivers has made progress heading into Saturday’s opener against Kent State. He says they’ve made great strides and are benefiting from the practice time they’ve been getting.
