The Nebraska Cornhuskers practiced for just under 2 hours on Tuesday afternoon in half-pads, as the ones who are not on the 105 are still getting acclimated to play.
Head Coach Mike Riley came out to talk to the media afterwards. Here are the highlights of what he had to say.
First off, health related issues.
Alex Lewis has a bruise on his knee, missed practice Tuesday but should be fine, Mike Riley said.— Brian Rosenthal (@HuskerExtraBR) August 25, 2015
Taariq Allen returns to practice. Trey Foster sprained ankle and is day to say, Riley says— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) August 25, 2015
Mike Riley also says Josh Banderas has groin pull and is day to day— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) August 25, 2015
That would be a huge loss for the Nebraska LB's if this lingers for Banderas. Meanwhile, from the sounds of it, Foster had been running with the 1's at the Tight End spot.
Morgan, Ozigbo, Ferguson, Young and Aaron Williams won't redshirt, Riley says— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) August 25, 2015
Jordan Stevenson likely will redshirt, Riley says— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) August 25, 2015
Add one more to that list of true frosh likely to play - Antonio Reed. Ober, of course, at long snapper too. #Huskers— Brian Christopherson (@HuskerExtraBC) August 25, 2015
Riley says TE Matt Snyder probably will redshirt, as will RB Jordan Stevenson— Eric Olson (@ericolson64) August 25, 2015
The Stevenson redshirt makes perfect sense in the matter that he got to Lincoln late and had issues with a foot/ankle this past week.
Surprised Riley is confident about not redshirting Ozigbo a this point.He has looked good but is in a 5 way battle for playing time #Huskers— Jake Bockoven (@jakebockoven) August 25, 2015
As far as those who won't, I'm only surprised by the Matt Snyder one, as I thought he was in line to potentially start at TE this coming season. Dedrick Young and Aaron Williams got here for Spring ball and Devine and Stanley have been standouts so far in camp.
Riley says #Huskers offense will have to deal with a BYU defense that "blitzes from the bleachers."— Eric Olson (@ericolson64) August 25, 2015
Well by golly, that's just not fair! You fans should make sure they can't get out of their seats and Nebraska will be good to win the game ok?
