Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa, who is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles' tendon, is listed as questionable for Saturday's opener at Boston College.
Northwestern released its injury report Thursday.
Persa set a Big Ten record last season for completion percentage, but was injured after throwing a game-winning touchdown pass against Iowa in the 10th game of the season.
The Wildcats lost their last three games without Persa.
Kain Colter is Persa's backup.
