Injury Report: NIU’s Kyle Pugh & Mark Aitken Out for Year

Northern Illinois head coach Thomas Hammock said that linebacker Kyle Pugh (shoulder) and true freshman cornerback Mark Aitken are both out for the season with injuries.

This news is considerably bad when we also remember that NIU is also still missing fellow senior linebacker Lance Deveaux Jr. who suffered a leg injury before the season began. Before the season, NIU had three senior linebackers pegged to lead the defense — Pugh, Deveaux, and Antonio Jones-Davis. Now, this team is just down to one that can still play.
