IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa is operating from a rare position of strength at running back.

Not only do the Hawkeyes have a stable of capable backs, they're nearly all healthy heading into the summer.

Iowa took it easy on its three top backs — starters Mark Weisman and Jordan Canzeri and third-down back Damon Bullock — and as a result they should all be fresh for fall camp in three months. The Hawkeyes gave many of the carries those backs would have gotten to a host of youngsters, including LeShun Daniels, Jonathan Parker and Barkley Hill.

Coach Kirk Ferentz says Bullock, Daniels and Canzeri have all improved during spring practice, which wrapped up Saturday with a scrimmage at Kinnick Stadium.
