Iowa State’s expected starting right tackle Jake Remsburg is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, according to Cyclones’ offensive line coach Jeff Myers.
Myers said redshirt junior Grant Treiber has been working with the first team in Remsburg’s place as the Cyclones continue rolling through fall camp leading towards the team’s season opener against Southeast Missouri State on Sept. 3 at Jack Trice Stadium.
“Jake’s day-to-day,” Myers said. “The goal right now is we can get him rolling back into practice and get him ready for week one. With that being said, it is a day-to-day thing, but our goal and our timeline right now is get him ready for that first week, getting him rolling back into practice and see where he’s at.”
When asked if the injury was MCL-related, Myers declined to comment.
The injury comes after Remsburg spent an entire year working back into the rotation after suffering an injury during Iowa State’s win over Oregon in the 2021 Fiesta Bowl. He started seven of the eight games he played during the 2020 season then appeared in 13 games last year primarily playing special teams.
“The goal is to get him back for the beginning of the season,” Myers said. “Right now, he’s day-to-day. He’s with our training staff and we’re hoping we can get him in a position where he can get back on the field for the first game.”
Treiber was a highly-sought recruit when he signed with Iowa State as a member of the 2018 recruiting class, picking the Cyclones over offers from Missouri, Oregon, Minnesota, Nebraska and Oklahoma State.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Sioux Falls, S.D. native has appeared in only two games since joining the program with both appearances coming during the 2020 season.
“He’s been on that right side running with that first group right now,” Myers said. “Has put some really good days together. We kind of moved (redshirt freshman Tyler) Maro over to that right side, too, and kind of shuffling some things around for the time being, but all positive from that standpoint.”
