Iowa State coach Dan McCarney expects Brian Jansen to handle the kicking chores when the Cyclones host Northern Illinois on Saturday. The walk-on connected on a 41-yard field goal but missed three others in a 17-10 loss at Iowa. Regular kicker Ton Yelk is still nursing a pulled muscle he suffered during the summer. He says that was in July, and Yelk’s been bothered since then. McCarney says Yelk has kicked some in practice but has not been able to shake off the effects. He says he feels good for a couple days, and then is sore again.McCarney says there is no time table for when he could be ready. McCarney says it remains day-to-day and they have to get ready without him. He says it’s not like other injuries where you can get an idea about healing time.
