North Dakota State got some good news on the injury front for a change. Starting defensive end Nick Compton, who was feared lost for the season with a possible torn meniscus suffered against Southern Illinois, was diagnosed with a deep bone bruise.

North Dakota State got some good news on the injury front for a change. Starting defensive end Nick Compton, who was feared lost for the season with a possible torn meniscus suffered against Southern Illinois, was diagnosed with a deep bone bruise.

NDSU head coach Craig Bohl said Compton is doubtful for Saturday's game at home against Western Illinois, but will most likely return at Northern Iowa in two weeks.

Compton is seventh on the team in tackles with 19 and is tied for the team lead in tackles for lost yardage with 3.5. He also has two quarterback sacks.

Freshman Garrett Johnson will start if Compton can't go.
