Iowa senior RB James Butler says he has "no regrets" about transferring to Iowa over the summer.
Butler left Nevada, where he was a two-time 1,000-yard rusher, for Iowa City on July 4. Between battling an elbow injury and playing behind Akrum Wadley, Butler has only 335 yards from scrimmage through six games. "I wouldn’t say I’ve played up to my full potential. I’m disappointed personally in my play," Butler said. "I wish I could have helped the team more." Because of the injury, Butler could have shut himself down in September and applied for a medical redshirt. He decided against that. "It was 50-50 right up until the day I saw I could still play with the brace on and there wasn’t any pain in my elbow," he said. "I felt like if I could play, I’d want to help this team win as much as possible." Butler, a Chicago-area kid who grew up a Hawkeye fan, will try to make an NFL team next summer. Nov 16 - 6:57 PM
