Well, it wouldn’t be just the Williams suspension news making waves today, would it?
Riley updates: Jerald Foster done for the year with knee injury. Torn MCL.— Michael Bruntz (@michaelbruntz) August 19, 2016
Corey Whitaker is having knee scoped. Will miss up to two weeks. Jalen Barnett, Boe Wilson are your options.— Michael Bruntz (@michaelbruntz) August 19, 2016
What’s that Morton Salt commercial? When it rains it pours? Well, there you go.
Boe Wilson and Jalin Barnett are options at LG while Whitaker recovers. They don't want to move Utter from center.— Brian Christopherson (@HuskerExtraBC) August 19, 2016
I suppose that they could move Utter back, but with all the camp being spent with Utter at Center, that’s a last case scenario.
Mike Riley did confirm that AJ Bush is splitting to Iowa Western Community College.
Riley also confirms AJ Bush has left the team. Says he didn't want Bush to leave.— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) August 19, 2016
Riley said original plan was to have AJ Bush third string and redshirt Patrick O'Brien. #Huskers— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) August 19, 2016
Riley says O'Brien will prepare like third QB, will travel on road, but Nebraska hopes they won't have to play him.— Michael Bruntz (@michaelbruntz) August 19, 2016
I wondered on twitter yesterday that 1) why would Bush wait so long into Fall camp to make this decision, and 2) would Bush have a immediate landing spot given that most schools were starting classes really soon.
CBs coach Brian Stewart said true freshman Lamar Jackson is in the mix to start on multiple special teams & to play in sub-packages on DEF.— Jacob Padilla (@JacobPadilla_) August 19, 2016
I stated a long time ago that Jackson will see the field for Nebraska in his true Freshman year. So, this should come as no surprised. I do think he’ll be starting at Corner sometime this season as well.
The Huskers will practice at Noon tomorrow, and Mike Riley will have availability afterwards as well. Nebraska will take both Sunday and Monday off, the latter due to the first day of classes at UNL.
