Sean Fisher And Anthony Blue Injured - If Bad News Comes In Threes......

First, Mike Smith is gone for the season with a broken leg. 

Now the media guys are telling us that Sean Fisher was taken from the field on a cart, and things don't look good. The Omaha World has Tom Osborne stating

Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne, who attended practice, said Tuesday night on the Husker Sports Network that two NU players suffered "bad injuries" during the two-hour session. Osborne did not elaborate. 

We'll find out more after Bo Pelini talks to reporters tomorrow, but Sean Callahan indicated on twitter that Anthony Blue was injured as well. That tweet has apparently been deleted, but OWH reporter Dirk Chatelain states the same

Blue had started in 2007 and played well-enough to earn freshman conference honors, but and played on special teams last season, but was (is!!????) expected to make an impact at cornerback this season. Blue's loss would be tragic, as by the 2010 season he should have been fully recovered from his knee injury in 2008. 

Fisher was (is!!!!????) expected to start at one of the linebacker positions along with Will Compton. Fisher started six games last season, making quite an impact as a redshirt freshman, totaling 35 tackles. He had nine tackles against Iowa State, and returned a Ndamukong Suh-blocked field goal 34 yards (although the Iowa State game was a debacle, Fisher's play was encouraging to say the least). 

If these are true, that'd be three players possibly gone for the 2010 season. It'd fit the "bad news come in threes" meme, and Husker fans can hope that this is the last of the bad news. On the other hand.... if you're not a little paranoid by now, I have to wonder if you have a pulse. 

If Zac Lee were to go down......
