As if Indiana didn’t have enough injury issues to deal with this week, the Hoosiers will now be without junior safety Lenyatta Kiles, who is listed as out on Friday’s injury report with a groin injury.
Kiles joins sophomore running back Darius Willis, who was reported out for the season with a patella tendon injury Thursday, as well as safety Chris Adkins (ankle) right tackle James Brewer (ankle), cornerback Richard Council (knee) and kicker Nick Freeland as players who were listed as out on the injury report.
Wide receiver Jamonne Chester (shoulder) is listed as questionable.
Kiles had been earning playing time as the third safety behind junior Donnell Jones and senior Mitchell Evans and was playing as the third safety in five-defensive back formations. Redshirt freshman Lawrence Barnett is likely to take his spot.
