Iowa's Center Likely Out for Opener
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says center Josh Koeppel will likely miss Saturday's season opener after a traffic accident in Iowa City.

Koeppel was riding a motorcycle Monday morning when a pickup truck turned left and collided with him. Koeppel was treated at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and released.

Ferentz says Koeppel was fortunate to walk away with just scrapes and soreness, and he's hopeful Koeppel will return to action soon.

Koeppel was listed as the backup to James Ferentz on the depth chart after the two competed during fall camp for the starting job.
