"Iowa is moving on without sophomore running back Brandon Wegher.
Hawkeyes head coach Kirk Ferentz told ESPN.com on Thursday that Wegher still isn't practicing with the team and has given no indication that he will return for the 2010 season. Wegher, who had 641 rushing yards and 967 all-purpose yards as a freshman last season, opened preseason camp with Iowa but left the team several days later for undisclosed personal reasons.
"He isn't here, and we have to operate as if he's not going to be here this year," Ferentz told ESPN.com. "He may return sometime during the year, he may not and he may never come back. Right now, we have to move forward, and I'm just hopeful that he'll immerse himself in his classes and keep moving forward academically.
"If he chooses to come back, that'd be wonderful, but we've had a lot of time elapse."
