In their final main practice before their opener vs. Arkansas State, the Nebraska Cornhuskers wrapped up their fall camp with a practice today at North Stadium.
Afterwards, Head Coach Mike Riley spoke to the media and cleared the air on a couple players with things looming over their head.
Mike Riley announces WR Stanley Morgan Jr. and S Antonio Redd will not miss any games for #Huskers in relation to summer arrests— Channel 8 KLKN-TV (@Channel8ABC) August 31, 2017
Morgan and Reed were cited in Florida on Memorial Day weekend for having weed when being pulled over. However, charges were dropped after pretrial diversion and drug treatment. So, Nebraska will indeed have its leading returning wideout for the fray on Saturday.
If you’re still looking for a starting running back, you’re going to have to wait ‘til Saturday to find out.
Riley says he's not ready to announce who the starting running back will be because he hasn't told that player yet.— Evan Bland (@EvanBlandOWH) August 31, 2017
Maybe Riley, Danny Langsdorf and Reggie Davis just don’t know! Maybe they do, but don’t want to make anyone nervous. Anyway, I think folks will try to read too much into this, but when a bellcow emerges, things will be better.
Riley did announce that WR Keyan Williams will not play against the Red Wolves Saturday due to a leg injury. Other than that and the already known injuries of Chris Jones, JoJo Domann and Jaevon McQuitty, the Huskers are seemingly healthy heading into the game. No word about Tre’ Bryant’s knee issue that has kept him to a slow crawl later in camp.
