Hawks' Barkley Hill out for the season


The Iowa Hawkeye football fans' worst fears have been confirmed. Freshman tailback Barkley Hill has been lost for the season after suffering a knee injury during an open practice on Saturday at Kinnick.

In a statement released Tuesday, Iowa Head Football Coach Kirk Ferentz said, "Barkley Hill's knee injury during Saturday's practice will require ACL reconstruction surgery later this week."

Hill, a former All-State tailback at Cedar Falls, was in the mix for playing time this fall. Hill will now take a redshirt season.
