Indiana beat Ball State 30-20, however two of their best player suffered injuries.
In his postgame press conference, Hoosier head coach Kevin Wilson said offensive guard Dan Feeney and wide receiver Simmie Cobbs both suffered injuries, with Cobbs’ being more on the serious side.
Feeney suffered a concussion and Cobbs injured his ankle. Cobbs’ ankle will require surgery and there is not a timetable for his return. However, Wilson said the injury has the potential to be a season-ending.
Wilson won't say whether Cobbs' injury will cost him season. Too early to tell. But obviously that's on the table. #iufb

Observations about Feeney seemed optimistic.
Wilson said he just saw Feeney in locker room and he seemed good. Indiana has a week off before next game
