AMES (KWWL) -

Iowa's Ike Boettger is no stranger to difficult injuries. The Cedar Falls native suffered another in Saturday's Cy-Hawk game which may put an end to his 2017 season.

Boettger went down early in the third quarter with an apparent achilles injury. The prognosis didn't sound good when head coach Kirk Ferentz was asked about it after Iowa's 44-41 overtime victory over Iowa State.

"It's done for the season if that's the case."

Boettger, a fifth year senior, started his 20th game for the Hawkeyes on Saturday.
