The Iowa Hawkeyes have confirmed WR Matt VandeBerg suffered a foot injury during Monday’s practice. He is out indefinitely, according to an official release.
“It is unfortunate that Matt will miss some time due to his injury,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said in the release. “We know that Matt will work extremely hard to get back on the field as soon as possible. We feel confident that some of our younger receivers will step up in Matt’s absence.”
VandeBerg, a senior, leads the team in catches (19), yards (284) and receiving touchdowns (3). He also led the team with 65 catches and 703 yards in 2015.
Iowa plays at home against Northwestern at noon (ET) on Saturday on ESPNU.
