Nebraska receiver Quincy Enunwa suffered a minor hand injury in the first half of a Tuesday practice and won’t play in the East-West Shrine Game on Saturday.
Enunwa was with the West team in St. Petersburg, Fla., along with NU offensive tackle Jeremiah Sirles. Patrick Laird of Army has been moved from the East roster to the West to replace Enunwa.
Enunwa already has an NFL Combine invitation after catching 51 passes, including a school-record 12 touchdowns, during his senior season. Before the injury, Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting said Enunwa “looks the part” and could work out well in Indianapolis next month.
The East-West Shrine Game will be played at Tropicana Field, kicking off at 3 p.m. CST and televised by the NFL Network.
Also, Husker offensive tackle Brent Qvale and cornerback Ciante Evans are practicing this week in Carson, Calif., for the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. That game starts at 5 p.m.
