AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads says defensive lineman Henry Simon will start practicing with the Cyclones today (Tuesday), but won’t be available for Saturday night’s opener against Northern Iowa. Simon, a 6-foot-3, 302-pound junior college transfer from Chula Vista, Calif., is expected to eventually push for playing time on the line. Rhoads also says redshirt junior Jon Caspers has been moved from guard to defensive tackle to bolster that unit’s depth. Rhoads says true freshman wide receivers Quenton Bundrage and Ja’Quarius Daniels should play immediately, as will freshman defensive back Jared Brackens and junior college transfer Ernst Brun, Jr., a tight end.
