  For as injury prone as Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. has been throughout his college career, he's also proven to be a quick healer. Video surfaced last week of Penix throwing in his native Tampa, Florida, and IU coach Tom Allen said Thursday the All-Big Ten signal caller remains on track to be ready in time for IU's season opener Sept. 4 at Iowa. Penix is less than seven months removed from a torn ACL he suffered Nov. 28 against Maryland on a scramble going out of bounds at Memorial Stadium that sidelined him for the rest of the season. "We feel good about it," Allen said. "I mean, it's like anything else. You've got to stay progressing each month, watching it very carefully. He's got his doctors that had the surgery there monitoring everything very carefully, and they are very cautious -- as they should be."

Indiana offensive coordinator Nick Sheridan said the plan is for Penix to start throwing to some of his IU teammates when he returns to campus in July. "I feel good where he's at and again in July start throwing with the guys and expect him to be, you know -- he won't be hit or anything throughout fall camp, so that gives him another whole month of August as well to be able to continue to heal," Allen said. "But he'll be full bore when we get into fall camp. There won't be any restrictions on him other than just not hitting." - Herald Bulletin
