Tate out for a while

January 18, 2009

Iowa senior post Cyrus Tate will miss today’s game at Purdue after what is described as a setback in his return.

Tate suffered a sprained left ankle against Minnesota on Jan. 8. He practiced on Jan. 15, but his ankle grew more sore and swollen since that practice.

Tate, a 6-foot-8 co-captain, probably will miss Wednesday’s home game against Wisconsin and possibly Saturday’s game at Penn State.
