Nebraska redshirt freshman WR J.D. Spielman (shoulder) is hopeful to play against Iowa on Friday.

Spielman felt "discomfort" in his shoulder in the loss to Penn State on Saturday, but stayed in the game. We should know more about his status for the Cornhuskers bout with the Hawkeyes later in the week

Nebraska sophomore RB Devine Ozigbo (ankle) is hopeful to play on Friday against Iowa.

Ozigbo sprained his ankle on Saturday, but it sounds like it wasn't a significant sprain and he could be able to go in the season finale against the Hawkeyes. If the sophomore tailback can't play, it could mean a big touch total on Friday for starter Mikale Wilbon.

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee completed 26-of-41 passes for 399 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 56-44 loss at Penn State.

Lee completed concussion protocol and was cleared to play, and he posted his second 300-yard performance in the past four games. He has tossed at least two touchdowns in eight of his 11 outings this season to serve as one of the bright spots in the Nebraska offense. He now has 2,938 yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions heading into the regular season finale against Iowa on Friday.

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee officially completed concussion protocol and has been cleared to play against Penn State.

Despite garnering plenty of preseason attention, it has not been a great season for Lee as Nebraska's starter. He has an 18 to 13 touchdown to interception ratio and is completing just 57 percent of his passes. Plus, he returns against one of the more talented defenses in the country.

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee (concussion) is progressing towards being cleared to play on Saturday against Penn State.

Lee still hasn't cleared the protocol yet, but being on track is a positive step in that direction. The redshirt junior suffered the head injury against Minnesota and was replaced by backup Patrick O'Brien. If Lee doesn't get cleared in time, O'Brien would get the start against Penn State on Saturday.

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee is leaning towards declaring for the NFL, according to Tony Pauline.

"As one insider told me it was "one foot in the door, one foot out the door" for both signal callers before the season even began," Pauline writes. Lee, somehow, generated positive buzz before the season started, but has responded by completing 57 percent of his passes along with an 18 to 13 touchdown to interception ratio.

Nebraska head coach Mike Riley said Monday that redshirt freshman Patrick O’Brien is preparing this week "as if he's going to start" at Penn State.

With starting quarterback Tanner Lee going through concussion protocol, O'Brien is working with the first-team in practice this week. "I don't rule him in or out right now," Riley said of Lee. Still, with Lee not yet having practiced this week, the tea leaves are pointing towards O'Brien making his first career start. O'Brien (6'4/230) played in the second half of Saturday's 54-21 loss to Minnesota after Lee went down in the second quarter.

Nebraska AD Bill Moos says that HC Mike Riley will finish the 2017 season as coach of the Cornhuskers.

"It’s not like I’ve got a coach to hire this afternoon at 3:30," Moos said. "Mike Riley deserves to finish the 2017 season. That’s how I operate." This is not exactly a ringing endorsement for Riley's long-term stature as head coach of the football team. In three years, the former Oregon State and Los Angeles Chargers coach has gone 19-17 with a 12-12 conference record. It would be a surprise at this point if he remains their head coach in 2018.
Nov 13 - 9:19 PM

Nebraska HC Mike Riley announced that redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee is going through the concussion protocol.

Lee left the Minnesota game at halftime due to the injury. "I think with the protocol, there won’t be early on in the sequencing, he won’t get any reps," Riley said. "He’s played a lot, and a decision about him can be made later when he’s cleared — if in time. Today we’re practicing Patrick O’Brien as if he can start." Nebraska has a brutal matchup with Penn State set for this weekend.

Nebraska HC Mike Riley said that redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee was suffering from an "intense migraine" in Saturday's loss to Minnesota.

Lee did not play in the second half of the defeat due to his migraine. Presumably this will not keep him out of action moving forward unless there is a more serious underlying issue in play.
Nov 11 - 4:36 PM

Nebraska redshirt freshman WR J.D. Spielman had nine catches for 141 yards in Saturday's 54-21 loss to Minnesota.

Outside of Spielman's output, the Cornhuskers could get nothing going on offense against the Gophers. But it was a tremendous showing in a homecoming game for Spielman, who hails from nearby Eden Prairie. This was his second-best career game following last month's 11-200-1 explosion against Ohio State.
Nov 11 - 4:09 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee did not start the second half of Saturday's game against Minnesota due to an illness.

An unfortunate turn for the Cornhuskers, as Lee was playing well in the first half before he began to feel ill. He was not spotted on the sideline when the team came out of the locker room after halftime. Patrick O'Brien is currently serving as signal-caller and would finish out the contest if Lee remains under the weather.

Nebraska junior WR Keyan Williams (hamstring) traveled with the team to Saturday's game against Minnesota.

That's a pretty good indication that he'll be active against the Gophers. If he enters the game, it'll be his first playing time of the 2017 season.
Nov 11 - 11:51 AM

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee completed 21-of-38 passes for 225 yards with three interceptions and two touchdowns in a 31-24 overtime loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

Lee (6'4/220) had been playing well coming into the game, but really struggled in this one. He was able to throw the two touchdowns, but he was off on several throws, and his three interceptions killed drives and -- if you believe in it -- momentum. Nebraska just isn't good enough running the ball or defensively to have their starting quarterback throw three picks. He'll look to remedy that next week against Minnesota.
Nov 4 - 7:08 PM

Nebraska redshirt sophomore CB Eric Lee remains in the concussion protocol.

Lee (6'0/195) should be considered doubtful for Saturday's game against Northwestern. The redshirt sophomore corner has recorded 30 tackles and two passes defensed in eight games this season. Should medical clearance come next week, Lee could potentially return to action against Minnesota on November 11.
