Kaevon Merriweather Ruled out of Iowa-Rutgers

The young safety has a minor injury.

NCAA Football: Miami (Ohio) at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Starting safety Kaevon Merriweather has been ruled out of the Iowa-Rutgers game with a minor foot injury.

Walk-on Jack Koerner is expected to take his place in the defensive backfield.

Merriweather earned his first start of his young Hawkeye career last week against Miami Lesser. He played ... alright, but there were flashes of a playmaker in his game.

Best of luck to Merriweather as he recovers, and Koerner as he gets his first start of his career.
