Ames, IA (U-WIRE) -- ISU wide receiver Todd Blythe has a skin infection on his left knee, the ISU athletic department announced in a press release Wednesday.
Even with the infection, the sophomore is expected to practice this week, according to the release.
It was reported on WHO-TV Tuesday night that Blythe had suffered a staff infection, a report that is not true, according to the ISU athletic department.
Blythe led the Cyclones with nine touchdown receptions and 833 receiving yards last season.
His nine tocuhdowns set a school record and is just six shy of the all-time record.
ISU football coach Dan McCarney and his staff have declined further comment about Blythe.
