Robinson Injury Big Blow to Hawkeyes
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa starting running back Adam Robinson is likely out for at least the rest of the regular season with an ankle injury.

Coach Kirk Ferentz wouldn't go into specifics about Robinson's injury but is hopeful he can return for a bowl game.

Robinson said after last week's 15-13 win at Michigan State that he rolled an ankle late in the game.

The loss of Robinson, who rushed for 629 yards and five TDs, shrinks what's already a slim margin of error for the 7th-ranked Hawkeyes, who rank 86th in the nation in scoring offense.

Iowa (8-0, 4-0 Big Ten) will replace Robinson with fellow freshman Brandon Wegher, who has rushed for 321 yards in relief of Robinson this season. Iowa hosts Indiana on Saturday.
