Indiana sophomore guard Dan Feeney, who started every game as a true freshman last fall and earned All-Big Ten Freshman Team honors, will miss the 2013 season after sustaining a lisfranc (mid-foot) injury during last week’s final scrimmage. Surgery was required. IU coach Kevin Wilson said that another player fell on Feeney’s foot.
Feeney will take his available redshirt year. Redshirt-freshman Jake Bailey, who prepped at Indianapolis Cathedral, was listed on the preseason depth chart as Feeney’s backup and has reportedly had a good camp, as has David Kaminsky, listed as the backup right guard behind Bernard Taylor. Collin Rahrig, who has played both center and guard in 16 career starts, is also a possible replacement, as is Jake Reed, who has battled Rahrig for the starting center job and is also capable of playing guard.Redshirt-soph Ralston Evans, who had to miss last season with a surgery, is listed as the backup to left tackle Jason Spriggs, but has also seen time at guard. So Wilson and staff will have plenty of options moving forward.
Wilson said Tuesday afternoon he hoped his program had gotten to the point where the loss of even a key player such as Feeney could be somewhat taken in stride, with some quality depth available.
