Another weekend of college football is in the books, and Saturday saw all of the teams in the Chicago area escape without suffering major injuries.

Notre Dame had the weekend off, but they still have a trio of players dealing with injuries for next weekend. Chase Hounshell and Tate Nicols are dealing with shoulder issues, while Amir Carlisle has an ankle problem. All three are questionable to play on Saturday vs. Miami.

Northwestern improved to 5-0 on Saturday, but they did so without Jimmy Hall, Mike Jensen or Daniel Jones. All three are listed as day-to-day with undisclosed injuries.

Illinois has three players to watch this week as well. Hugh Thornton is listed as day-to-day with a knee injury, while both Nick Immekus and Darius Millines are questionable for Saturday. Immekus' injury has not been disclosed, Millines is dealing with an ankle problem.

Northern Illinois fans will be watching the status of Victor Jaques this week. Jacques has missed the past several games with knee issues, and he's currently being described as day-to-day.

There was one major injury of note that would concern Big Ten schools. Nebraska linebacker Zaire Anderson suffered a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season for the Huskers. Nebraska defeated Wisconsin on Saturday night.
