Iowa football: Brandon Snyder out for Northwestern game, Miles Taylor likely to start

EVANSTON, Ill. — The return of Brandon Snyder lasted only one game. The Iowa senior free safety didn’t make the trip and will not face Northwestern. Blair Sanderson of Rivals.com reported that Snyder suffered a knee injury during the week in practice.

Snyder’s injury opens the door for Miles Taylor to re-enter the starting lineup. Miles started the first five games at strong safety before moving to the bench upon Snyder’s return from a torn left ACL. Amani Hooker, who played strong safety against Illinois, is likely to move to free safety with Snyder out.

Snyder suffered his torn ACL during spring practice. Snyder made three tackles and returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown in his return against the Fighting Illini.

Taylor is fourth on the team with 30 tackles. He has also recorded three pass breakups and two quarterback hurries. He will start next to Amani Hooker in the secondary.
