Nebraska freshman WR Keyshawn Johnson Jr. tweeted that he will "100%" be returning to the team this winter.

Johnson, a four-star recruit in the 2017 class, left the Cornhuskers after he was cited for marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia at the beginning of June. He has since entered a diversionary program which, if followed, will see his case dismissed down the road. Nebraska HC Mike Riley has kept the door open for the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder's return after the end of the season. The team has kept in contact with Johnson and family.
Sep 19 - 8:01 PM

Nebraska HC Mike Riley said that sophomore RB Tre Bryant (knee) remains questionable for Saturday's game against Rutgers.

Bryant missed the Cornhusker's upset loss to NIU last Saturday. In that one, junior Mikale Wilbon had 24 carries for 90 yards. Wilbon will start again if Bryant can't go. Bryant rushed for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the first two games.

Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst backed HC Mike Riley after the Cornhuskers 21-17 loss to Northern Illinois on Saturday.

Eichort was supportive, but also said: "I'm angry, I'm frustrated, I'm disappointed," At the end of the day, we have to stay together. It's still early in the season, and we need to find ways to win games like this. I want to continue to show our support, but I also understand there is a lot of frustration out there when you don't win games like today." That qualifies as support, but knowing the expectations of Nebraska every year, it wouldn't be a surprise to see that support ween as the season progresses if things don't get back on track soon.
Sep 16 - 7:30 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior RB Mikale Wilbon rushed for 90 yards on 24 carries in Saturday's 21-17 loss to NIU.

Wilbon started in place of Tre Bryant (knee). He put up decent yardage, but did so while struggling for any sort of explosivity -- he averaged 3.75 YPC in the defeat. Bryant will start against Rutgers next weekend so long as he is physically able.
Sep 16 - 4:09 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee completed 25-of-47 passes for 299 yards and three interceptions in Saturday's 21-17 loss to NIU.

The Cornhuskers had high hopes for Lee entering the season, but he has shown the same questionable decision-making processes that he demonstrated at Tulane prior to transferring over to the Cornhuskers last offseason. Two of his three picks on Saturday were returned for touchdowns and in his last two games, the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder owns a 3/7 TD/INT ratio. Nebraska figures to give him at least a little leash while he attempts to right the ship, but if he struggles again, his starting job could be in jeopardy. A home game against Rutgers next weekend should work as a soothing enough balm.
Sep 16 - 3:48 PM

Nebraska senior T David Knevel (ankle) will miss Saturday's game against Northern Illinois.

Nebraska's starting right tackle is still suffering from lingering ankle issue. The towering Knevel (6'9/315) started 10 games last season. HC Mike Riley hopes he can return to practice next week.
Sep 15 - 4:31 PM

Nebraska senior S Joshua Kalu (hamstring) will miss Saturday's game against Northern Illinois.

He suffered the injury last week in the loss to Oregon. Antonio Reed will replace Kalu in the starting lineup on Saturday. Last season, Kalu recorded 66 tackles, three TFL, an interception and 11 passes defended. He had started 28 straight games for the Huskers.
Sep 15 - 1:14 PM

Nebraska HC Mike Riley said that as many as four players are currently dealing with illness.

The illness caused Nebraska's soccer team to cancel their game, and it has apparently spread to the football team. "Have you heard about all these kids getting sick? Soccer kids? Half the soccer team or more? It’s happening… Jaylin [Bradley] got sick right before practice," Riley told Land of 10’s Erin Sorenson. "I bet that’s probably our 4th or 5th guy. [Matt] Sichterman was sick. [Brendan] Jaimes was sick. Now Jaylin is sick, and one other guy. Or two other guys. Jaylin is going to play, but this was a real good practice for him today and he was not here. It would have been great for him." Those players should be considered day-to-day for the Cornhuskers' matchup with Northern Illinois on Saturday.

Sep 14 - 8:12 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior RB Mikale Wilbon will start against NIU on Saturday.

Wilbon (5'9/200) will see the start in place of Tre Bryant, who has been ruled out with a knee injury. A four-star recruit in the 2014 class, Wilbon has seen minimal work this season, though he has shown a nose for the end zone -- in two games, the redshirt junior has rushed for 23 yards and two touchdowns on five carries.
Sep 14 - 7:39 PM

Nebraska HC Mike Riley said that sophomore RB Tre Bryant (knee) will not play against NIU on Saturday.

This is a disappointing step back on the health front for Bryant, who was deemed to be day-to-day early in the practice week. He initially sustained the knee injury in this past Saturday's loss to Oregon. In two games this season, the 5-foot-11, 200-pound sophomore has rushed for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Redshirt junior Mikale Wilbon will start in Bryant's place against the Huskies this weekend.
Sep 14 - 7:26 PM

Nebraska sophomore RB Tre Bryant (knee) is listed as day-to-day.

It's unknown when Bryant picked up the injury. In two games, the 5-foot-11, 200-pound tailback has rushed for 299 yards and two touchdowns over the first two games of the Nebraska season. His status for Saturday's game against Northern Illinois will likely be updated later this week.
Sep 11 - 6:20 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee completed 19-of-41 passes for 252 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions in Saturday's 42-35 loss to Oregon.

Well, that's one kind of a game you can have. Lee wasn't particularly efficient in his passing and was far, far too loose with the football on the turnover front, but he also fired off two touchdown passes in the third quarter to help jump start the Cornhuskers' ultimately-failed comeback attempt after they fell behind by a 42-14 score at halftime. We're still waiting for the Tulane transfer to put together a complete game, but he has flashed in spots.
Sep 9 - 8:28 PM

Nebraska sophomore RB Tre Bryant rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Saturday's 42-35 loss to Oregon.

Bryant danced his way onto the CFB stage when he busted out for 192 yards and a touchdown against Arkansas State last weekend. He fell back to earth by degrees in Eugene on Saturday, but his was still a sharp performance. His lone touchdown in the loss to the Ducks came from five yards out early in the second quarter and averaged a respectable 5.3 YPC on the whole. Bryant will look to post his third consecutive game of 100 yards rushing when the Cornhuskers take on NIU next Saturday.
Sep 9 - 8:20 PM

Nebraska junior WR Stanley Morgan caught five passes for 102 yards with a touchdown in a 43-36 victory over Arkansas State on Saturday.

There was talk that Stanley could miss the game after his arrest for marijuana possession in May, but he was available. Fortunate for Stanley, and fortunate for the Huskers. His touchdown was a 44-yard bomb from quarterback Tanner Lee. If defenses focus on RB Tre Bryant and put more men in the box, Stanley has the talent to take advantage of the one-on-one coverage.
Sep 3 - 12:14 AM

Nebraska sophomore RB Tre Bryant ran for 192 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries in a 43-36 victory over Arkansas State on Saturday.

The hype is real. Even if it was against a Sun Belt team in September, you have to be impressed with the 5-foot-11, 200-pound Bryant. He showed quick burst through the holes, and outside of a few exceptions, the Red Wolves had no answer for him. His touchdown was a one-yard plunge that gave Nebraska a 34-26 lead. Until QB Tanner Lee can prove himself a consistent passer, Bryant figures to be seeing his fair share of loaded fronts moving forward. He'll go up against Oregon next week in a game that has sneaky shootout potential.
