BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana football (3-1) will stay on the road for a second consecutive week for a matchup at Nebraska (1-3), which will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET  on Saturday.

After three wins to begin the season, the Hoosiers are coming off a 45-24 loss at Cincinnati, and now it's time for Big Ten play the rest of the way. 

Before we get into the Week 5 depth chart, let's run through a few injuries to keep an eye on.

Zach Carpenter started at center in the first two games, but he suffered a right hand injury during pregame warmups against Western Kentucky. He made the trip to Cincinnati last week, but he did not dress. With backup center Cameron Knight in a walking boot, redshirt sophomore Caleb Murphy made his first career start against Western Kentucky. Murphy started again last week at Cincinnati, but on Monday, Indiana coach Tom Allen left the door open for Carpenter's return at Nebraska. 

"Obviously trying to see if we can get Zach back," Allen said. "That's going to be a huge priority this week and how that affects us."

Allen wouldn't specify D.J. Matthews' injury on Monday, other than saying that he's day-to-day and it's not a long-term injury. Matthews left the game against Cincinnati, and Connor Delp took over punt-return duties. If Matthews is out, Emery Simmons would slide up a spot in the depth chart at wide receiver. 

True freshman linebacker Dasan McCullough played less that normal against Cincinnati due to an illness, according to an IU spokesperson. McCullough is tied for the lead among all FBS true freshmen in tackles for loss or no gain.

"[McCullough] is back, he's full strength, he's ready to go," Indiana defensive coordinator Chad Wilt said.
