LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Receiver Dexton Fields and defensive back Kendrick Harper are expected to be ready to return from injuries for No. 16 Kansas at Iowa State on Saturday.
Both have participated in practices following Kansas' last game, a 38-14 victory over Sam Houston State on Sept. 20.
``It's the type of thing with Kendrick where you have to see every day how he responds on the practice field,'' coach Mark Mangino said. ``But do we expect him to play? Yes. Do we expect Dexton to play? Yes.''
Fields hurt his foot in the first quarter of the opener against Florida International, and was still wearing a protective boot before practice Tuesday.
Harper, a senior cornerback, missed six games last season and was injured in the Jayhawks' second game against Louisiana Tech this season, wheeled off the field on a stretcher with an apparent neck or head injury. Kansas has not revealed the extent of the injury.
ran to the sideline and I had a little trouble seeing. At that particular time, I couldn't see anything.''
Harper was brought to Lawrence Memorial Hospital as a precautionary move. His vision was blurred for a couple of hours, he said. He was released the next day and now says he feels 100 percent.
``It doesn't matter to me if I don't start,'' he said. ``I'm just going to give it my best. I'm looking forward to it.''
