In a media opportunity after Tuesday's workout as the Nebraska Cornhuskers prepared for the Foster Farms Bowl, HC Mike Riley confirmed who was the extra person not with Nebraska anymore after his media opportunity Friday.
Jonathan Rose is no longer on the #Huskers football team because of violation of team rules.— Jake Bockoven (@jakebockoven) December 15, 2015
Rose, who is a Senior from Leeds, Alabama, had been suspended by Riley a couple of times this season. He started as one of the few who didn't play in the BYU game. Rose also missed the Purdue game as well due to suspension.
Nebraska should be set to go without Rose, however.
Mark Banker said that Trai Mosley and Boaz Joseph have gotten CB reps w/o Rose. Daniel Davie has been finishing up school work before FB.— Jacob Padilla (@JacobPadilla_) December 15, 2015
Riley also discussed Defensive Tackle depth, with Mick Stoltenberg being out for the game as well due to injury.

Senior DL Jack Gangwish was working on some things to get noticed by NFL scouts, and has a backup plan just in case.
Gangwish also said he's been training with Gabe Miller to learn how to long-snap to give himself a better chance with pro scouts.— Jacob Padilla (@JacobPadilla_) December 15, 2015
