The secondary of Nebraska is considered one of the strongest position groups on the team. That position group took a hit as Coach Scott Frost announced that sophomore cornerback Braxton Clark is likely out for the season with an injured shoulder.
The 6’4” 210 pound cornerback was considered to be one of the top contributors in the secondary. The drill in which he was hurt wasn’t even a full contact drill.
Clark was one of the candidates to take the place of Lamar Jackson, who has just been called up by the New York Jets a couple days ago from the practice squad. One of Braxton’s competitors for the spot is Quinton Newsome who sounds like is getting better physically as he was injured at some point.
Braxton Clark played in every game as a redshirt freshman with one start at cornerback at Purdue. He totaled 11 tackles with one interception and one fumble recovery.
