Nebraska star running back Rex Burkhead is not expected to return to Saturday’s game. Neither is receiver Tim Marlowe.
Burkhead has a sprained MCL, according to the ABC broadcast. He was seen sitting on a sideline bench with his left knee wrapped in ice.
Marlowe separated his shoulder, ABC reported. He took a hard fall lunging for an over-the-middle pass late in the first quarter.
When we find more on those injuries, we’ll pass the information along. Meanwhile, Nebraska’s taken a 21-14 lead. The Huskers are driving as I type.
